DETROIT (WXYZ) - The WXYZ team has worked with the North American International Auto Show to provide a very special opportunity to our social media community.
This Thursday night, we will host a FREE WXYZ.com Tweetup for a limited number of our friends to join us for a sneak peek at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. Guests will be able to see the show before it officially opens to the public.
We have a limited number of spaces available. If you're able to secure a ticket, please come armed with a camera to share your experience on Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you choose. Tweetup participants must be over the age of 18. For those with tickets, we will provide details of our Tweetup location by Thursday morning.
UPDATE: All tweetup spots are now claimed.
Follow @wxyzdetroit on Twitter to learn if additional spots open up this week.
This year's auto show promises to be an exciting one! Our Tweetup will be the first opportunity for "real people" - not journalists or industry insiders - to see the newest concept cars and production vehicles.
We're doing this so you have the first opportunity to share your impressions of the show with your friends and family.
