DETROIT (WXYZ) - As a thank you to everyone who joins us each morning on Twitter and Facebook, we created a very special opportunity to attend a special event.
Friday is already Channel 7 Family Day at the Auto Show . We also worked with the organizers of the North American International Auto Show to allow a small group into the show for free on Friday morning for an early "tweetup". All of the tickets went very quickly and we're excited to meet everyone who registered for the event.
Tickets to this tweetup were very limited. In order to be a part of the event, you will need to be at Cobo Center by 5:45 a.m. Friday, 1/20/2012.
SOLD OUT: ALL TICKETS HAVE BEEN RESERVED FOR THIS EVENT:
Our small # earlyrisers tweetup group will be there as we broadcast some of Friday morning's Action News newscasts from the Auto Show floor. Tweetup participants will also be a part of the Good Morning America broadcast that morning! We will be joined by GMA weather anchor Sam Champion . Oh... And you'll get to see the cars!
We'll ask you to bring a smartphone or digital camera along on Friday to share the experience on Facebook and Twitter. And we assure you this will be fun!
If you reserved a ticket, you should have received an email confirmation. By Thursday afternoon, we will email you additional details about where our group will meet on Friday morning.
