The Automotive Hall of Fame is proud to announce the date and location of our 2016 Induction Ceremony. On Thursday, July 21, our class of 2016 will be honored at the newly renovated Cobo Center in Detroit.

The ceremony will be held in Cobo’s Grand Riverview Ballroom, part of a $279 million overhaul to Cobo that began in 2010 and was completed in 2015. The ballroom stands in the space formerly occupied by Cobo Arena. Its regal interior and modern amenities will provide an excellent venue to honor our 2016 inductees. As in years past, there will be a cocktail reception in the ballroom before dinner is served complete with music and display vehicles that celebrate our inductees. A VIP reception will be held in the atrium just outside the ballroom, which boasts an expansive glass wall and a magnificent view of the Detroit River and Canadian shoreline.

The additional space provided by the Grand Riverview Ballroom has become necessary due to the success and growth of our induction ceremonies in recent years. Our induction class of 2016 will be announced in the coming weeks. Ticket information and pricing also will be released at that time.
