Another year of the North American International Auto Show is upon us, bringing about the newest models, tech and futuristic ideas that originally gave Detroit its nickname ‘The Motor City’. If you’re planning to attend, or are still on the fence, here are a few things to look forward to.

NAIAS Education Days – Jan. 24-25

NAIAS Education Day (NED) welcomes school groups of all ages – from elementary to the college level. Young minds will be able to immerse themselves in pre-and-post-show lesson plans, brief class-based presentations hosted by experts in their fields of interest and test hands-on activities offered at many exhibits throughout the day.

Photo Contest – Jan. 20-29

The Auto Show offers you a chance to get up close and personal with some of the latest vehicles and tech, and NAIAS wants you to take advantage! Grab your camera and make your way around the floor as your photo could be amongst the very best at the show. Photos must be submitted by Jan. 29 at 9 a.m. ET before it is posted for an online vote. The photo with the most votes in each category will win Bose SoundSport wireless headphones.


Last year’s kickoff of AutoMobili-D featured more than 180 brands sharing the spotlight and offering a glimpse of what’s on the horizon for the next big thing. Automakers, suppliers, universities, government organizations and tech startups are just a few examples of presenters at Automobili-D. No other event in North America provides an international platform for this vast array of companies, organizations and thought leaders under one roof. You can check out the Automobili-D speaker lineup here.

Other daily activities include:

  • American Red Cross Blood Drive – Jan. 20, Jan. 24
  • Cars on Parade – Jan. 20-28
  • Detroit Tigers Winter Caravan – Jan. 26
  • WXYZ Family Day – Jan. 26
