NAIAS a reflection of positive industry changes
Detroit, Mich., Dec. 20, 2012 – Global automakers have saved their best for the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), and with less than one month to go before the curtain rises, the industry remains focused on one of the top automotive events in the world.
“This show is a reflection of the positive changes that are occurring in our industry,” said Jim Seavitt, chairman, 2013 NAIAS. “Automakers from around the world continue to place NAIAS at the top of their global auto show strategies, and have committed to more than 50 vehicle debuts with the majority being worldwide unveilings.”
Seavitt said the official NAIAS Press Conference Schedule, which was released today, reads like an automakers ‘Who’s Who’ and features nearly 40 official events to be held at Press Preview, Jan. 14-15, 2013.
“Our hotels are filling up, our international media registration is up 15 percent, and the energy is back,” he said. “Our city, state and industry are in a better place. It’s show time in Detroit.”
Together, the more than 50 worldwide and North American unveilings are a major demonstration of confidence in the NAIAS, which is frequently compared with shows in Geneva, Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo, and Beijing/Shanghai.
