Auto shows are exciting for both car enthusiasts and media alike. In this post, we will list the upcoming North American auto shows for January 2018.
Apart from providing a close-up view of new models and concept vehicles, auto shows highlight rare and exotic cars that many don’t see on an everyday basis. Whether you attend the show as a spectator or journalist, you will feel like a kid in a candy store. Each year brings different debuts and unveilings – so there is never a dull moment.
The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, is listed among the world’s top 10 biggest and best shows. The only other American show that made that listing was the Chicago Auto Show, which is scheduled to take place in February.
The NAIAS is held annually in Detroit, Michigan, the automotive capital of the United States.
This show, one of the first of the year, is basically the main platform for which many automakers use to show off their most exciting vehicles. The show also hosts award ceremonies for the American car and truck of the year. Other auto shows, like the New York International Auto Show, also host a breakfast for media goers to award the best commercial, company growth and green initiative in the automotive world.
Press preview days take place a couple of days before the shows are open to the public.

Journalists rush to the show’s media room to type out articles, post teasers and upload full unveilings to the general public. It is always exciting to see the flood of posts that come in from these media days, especially for those who may not be able to attend the actual show.
