About the Chicago Auto Show

The Chicago Auto Show bills itself as “The nation’s largest and best-attended auto show, held annually at McCormick Place.”

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association produces the event, and reportedly offers visitors access to nearly 1,000 of the industry’s latest cars, trucks and SUVs. During the day they also offer innovative car tech demonstrations, interactive exhibits on the show floor, family-friendly activities, special appearances from celebrities and sports icons, and much more. Think of it as the Comic-Con of car shows.

“Over its history, Chicago’s auto show has transformed from a venue for major news and debuts, primarily of trucks, to a much more consumer-focused affair,” notes Car and Driver. The esteemed publication continues, saying, “Held every February at McCormick Place in the Windy City and often bedeviled by a good helping of lake-effect snow, the erstwhile ‘truck show’ now plays host to a more varied and offbeat mix of vehicles.”

Show organizers note that the venue offers more than 1 million square feet of exhibit space. Auto Show Chairman Tony Guido notes on the event website, “Whether or not you’re in the market for a new vehicle, the show provides a great opportunity to experience the latest technology and safety features found in today’s cars, trucks and SUVs.”
