formerly known as the Detroit Auto Show, celebrates 100 years in
Detroit. Established in 1907 by the Detroit Auto Dealers
Association, the show has grown from a regional event featuring 17
exhibitors to an internationally-sanctioned show with over 90
exhibitors, adding more than $600 million to the metro Detroit
region last year alone. The NAIAS features more new vehicle debuts
and garners more media coverage than any show in North America.
