A fellow blogger and friend Louise from Momstart had to cancel attending this event and asked if I could go in her place and cover it for both sites. Soooo I’ll be on my way to the Windy City Feb. 6-8 to attend the The 2013 Chicago Auto Show, the 105th edition! I’m excited to be attending the Two-day Media Preview featuring approximately 2,000 registered media and an additional 1,500 invited influencers, shouters and followers. We will all be tweeting under the #SMP13 hashtag as well as #CAS13. So make sure your following both!
First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been staged more times than any other auto exposition. This year marks the show’s 105th edition.
North America’s largest auto show, the 2013 Chicago Auto Show spans more than one million square feet of contiguous one-floor space of the McCormick Place complex displaying multiple world and North American introductions and a complete range of domestic and imported passenger cars, trucks, sport-utility vehicles, minivans and concept cars. In all, nearly 1,000 different vehicles will be on display, plus hundreds of interactive, aftermarket, accessories and auto-related exhibits, competition vehicles, antique and collector cars. The Chicago Auto Show also features several indoor test tracks and outdoor ride-and-drive opportunities.
Don’t forget this show is open to the public as well!
