Detroit auto show pushed back

2012-03-20 09:16

AUTO SHOW PUSHED BACK: To make sure motoring enthusiasts don't miss out on the Detroit auto show, the annual US auto show has been pushed back a week later.

The 2013 North American International Auto Show (Naias) is changing dates, moving a week later into January, show organisers have  announced.

According to the Detroit News, the media and industry events are scheduled for January 14-18 and the public show will run from January 19-27. The Detroit auto show in 2012 ran from January 9-22.

ANNUAL CHANGES

Naias chairman Jim Seavitt said the date change will make it more convenient for journalists travelling to the US.

Seavitt said: "Each year our dates move up one day on the calendar, so every five or six years, we need to make an adjustment and push the show back one week. We do our best to keep some distance between the holidays and our opening and many people have expressed appreciation for that."
