"We couldn't be more pleased with the response of the public for the 2010 NAIAS," said Doug Fox, 2010 NAIAS Chairman. "The positive vibe of preview week is spilling into our public days and we are looking forward to keeping the momentum to continue what has been an exciting time so far. The best part is we were ready for the crowds so more people can enjoy the experience fully. We have wider aisles at the show and plenty of parking with easy-to-use shuttles. Having the experience to put on a show of this magnitude is a great asset, and we are pleased to put that experience to action when the crowds are at such positive levels."
