DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) - Organizers announced the official dates for next year's North American International Auto Show and they are basically the same as last year's dates.
The NAIAS is considered to be one of the most prestigious auto shows in the world.
The event which is held at Cobo Center will be held the following dates:
Organizers said they picked the dates because they were popular with manufactures and journalists.
"We're extremely diligent about providing excellent customer service to patrons of the NAIAS," said NAIAS Chairman Bob Shuman. "The two week cushion between the holidays and our opening day is really appreciated by the thousands of people who cover, build and participate in the show."
Shuman also revealed that recent talks with automakers show that NAIAS 2014 will be more of a global event with all the bells and whistles.
"What we've heard from our manufacturer partners in the last several weeks is that they'll be bringing even more worldwide product introductions, new exhibits and automotive technology so the energy we saw here just a few months ago will increase dramatically," said Shuman. "NAIAS 2014 will be an indicator of an increasingly confident, healthier automotive industry, and once again, all the industry news and excitement will be unveiled on the world stage right here in Detroit."
The NAIAS is in its 26th year.
