Press Preview Days for the North American International Auto Show - January 11-12, 2010

Detroit, MI - December 30, 2009 - On Monday, Jan. 11, the doors of Cobo Center will open to the 2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Beginning on Monday instead of Sunday, the new schedule creates a more efficient timeline for manufacturers and press alike during two jam-packed days of worldwide press reveals and announcements. Thousands of global journalists will be on hand to report on the latest product and industry information from the heart of the automotive sector in Detroit.

"One of the world's most prestigious automotive events is less than two weeks away," said Doug Fox, chairman, 2010 NAIAS. "To date, we're anticipating some 40 debuts, 30 worldwide and 10 North American, which will make for a very full two days of press conferences at Cobo Center. In addition to the press conferences being held, the media will also be able to explore the all-new 37,000 square-foot Electric Avenue on the main show floor, as well as test drive environmentally-friendly vehicles again in the MEDC EcoXperience in Michigan Hall. It will be an opportunity for journalists to take advantage of every moment."
