NAIAS: Setting "The Stage" for Detroit Hall in 2010

NAIAS has announced that in addition to the Michigan Hall Stage in Cobo Center's lower hall, there will be a second state-of-the-art stage on the main show floor in the Detroit Hall.

The new stage, complete with an 18-foot turntable, will be available for use by NAIAS OEM exhibitors for presentations and/or press events. There are no stage rental fees to OEMs and use of the stage will be based on requests received and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
