2011 NAIAS Dates Announced

Only a couple of weeks after the 2010 edition of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) closed its doors, the governing body of the event announced the dates for the 2011 show. NAIAS will hold the media preview in 2011 on January 10 and 11, followed by the industry preview the following two days. The public will have a chance to admire the vehicles on display in between January 15 and 23, 2011.

As for the recently concluded edition, NAIAS was the scene of choice for the unveiling of 40 total vehicles, presented in front of some 5,000 international media from more than 60 countries. The 2010 event introduced a new concept, the Electric Avenue, a part of the exhibit dedicated to future electric vehicles.

"This year at NAIAS, we took on the global economic challenges to do what Detroiters have always done: endure, excel and exceed expectation," said Doug Fox, chairman, 2010 NAIAS. "The NAIAS committee was proud to once again host this world-class event for thousands of media and industry executives who are attracted by newsworthy and exciting production and concept vehicle debuts."

"Additionally, by evolving each year to incorporate more signature events, celebrity appearances and amenities, the NAIAS will continue to attract top media, industry executives and enthusiasts."

NAIAS is now entering its 22nd year as an international event and is the single auto show in the United States to earn an annual sanction of the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles.
