The first North American International Auto Show was organized in 1907 and lasted only 5 days.
It was held by the Detroit Auto Dealers Association. The idea of holding a car dealership belonged to Henry Ford himself.
Over the years, the exhibition has become widely known and gained the status of a social event, so the organizers decided that it should officially “go beyond” the framework of one city. In 1989, it was awarded the proud title of the North American International Auto Show. Since then, the exhibition features not only American and European cars but also cars from manufacturers from around the world.
Today, the Auto Show is a large-scale event that gathers more than 800,000 visitors annually. It represents more than 50 different global automotive manufacturers.
That’s the last time when the event takes place in January. And from the future 2020, the North American International Auto Show is planned to be held in early summer.
