VIDEO: Two-month time-lapse view from above the Detroit auto show floor as electricians wire Cobo

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Transforming Detroit's Cobo Center into a high-tech vehicle showplace is no small task. Wiring and building all of the North American International Auto Show displays takes months. This video from the IBEW shows just how it all comes together.

It comes to us from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 58 and the National Electrical Contractors Association of Southeastern Michigan . Their members spent the last two months wiring all of Cobo.

As you walk the auto show floor, it is dominated by large video screens and massive overhead lighting arrangements. This video shows just how much goes into the behind the scenes effort to put together the auto show.
