DETROIT (WWJ) – So, how does Detroit’s auto show compare to other shows around the country, and around the world?
Well, its not the largest. That distinction goes to the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany, and that is held every two years.
WWJ’s Gary Lundy tells us the Paris Auto Show was the first show … starting in 1898.
The Chicago Auto Show is the “largest” in the U.S.A. … with more than a million square feet of exhibit space.
The New York Auto Show gets the largest attendance.
But the North American International Auto Show, here in the Motor City, has more unveilings and more introductions of new cars and trucks.
And the Charity Preview has raised more than $87 million since it began, helping local children’s charities. It takes place on the Friday night before the show opens to the general public.
