Interactive Displays

Below is a tentative listing of interactive displays at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. We expect to add many more items before the show opens to the public.

With more than one million square feet of show floor space, the automakers are getting creative with the displays they’re featuring at the Chicago Auto Show – there’s so much more than cars on carpet! This year, attendees have the chance to test-drive vehicles – in the indoor test tracks and outdoor ride and drives - interact with the latest technology and safety features, and participate in new, engaging activations. Also, don’t miss out on the opportunity to win prizes by participating in the #CAS15 Challenge on social media: just share your show experience through photos and videos tagged with #CAS15 and you’ll automatically be entered to win awesome prizes!

This year we have THREE indoor test tracks. There is the Jeep Test Track where you can climb into a Jeep and have a professional driver take you through their exhilarating obstacle course. Chrysler has a multi-brand track that features an acceleration lane, slalom and brake zone. The Camry Experience will immerse Chicago Auto Show attendees within a 27,000 square foot themed indoor driving course and is designed to recreate one of the recent television commercials in Toyota’s “Bold New Camry” advertising campaign. Additionally, there are six outdoor test drive opportunities. Sign up for those at Ford, Kia, Mazda, Scion, Subaru and Toyota exhibits. Plus there's so much more for families to do on the floor of the Chicago Auto Show. Here's a list of the interactive displays at the 2015 show.
