DETROIT (WXYZ) — We're just one week away from the 2019 North American International Auto Show, the 30th anniversary of the show and the final time it will take place in January before it moves to June in 2020.


More than two dozen automakers are expected to be on hand for the show, with a full day of conferences scheduled for Monday, Jan. 14, the first day of press days.

The Press Preview will continue on Tuesday, Jan. 15, before Industry Preview Days kick off Wednesday and continue into Thursday. That's when tens of thousands of auto executives, engineers, workers and more get a chance to check out the show. WXYZ will also host its annual TweetUp on Thursday night of Industry Preview days. You can get tickets for Industry Preview here.

On Friday, Jan. 18, the auto show will host the charity preview, which they say is the "largest annual, single-night fundraiser in the world." The black-tie event helps raise money for several charities across metro Detroit. Tickets are $400 each, $390 of which is tax deductible. You can get them here.

The public show kicks off on Saturday, Jan. 19 and runs through Sunday, Jan. 27. The show is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, except Sunday, Jan. 27 where it is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets are $14 per person, $7 for seniors 65 and older and $7 for children 7-12 years old. Children 6 and under are free with a parent or guardian. You can get tickets here.
