School & Group Ticket Sales

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association will again be offering discounted tickets to the 2014 Chicago Auto Show for schools and groups.

What will members of your group see? The 2014 show will feature more than 1 million square feet of the world's largest room transformed into a transportation Fantasyland of amazing displays with more than 1,000 exciting new production cars, trucks, sport utility, concept and specialty vehicles on display. They're sure to generate excitement for everyone. The lights and color of the Chicago Auto Show will be a welcome change for those trapped in the late winter doldrums.

As you prepare late Winter/early Spring educational activities for your students, please consider a group outing to the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Not only is the auto show a wonderful learning opportunity, but most students and instructors are genuinely grateful for the change in venue from the "typical" field trip. The 2014 event will be open to the public Saturday, February 8 through Monday, February 17 at McCormick Place, 23rd Street and Lake Shore Drive.

Students Ticket Sales

Student groups of 20 or more will receive a discounted rate of $6 per ticket. These tickets may be used on one of the following days: Monday, February 10 through Friday, February 14 and Monday, February 17. Chaperones for the students will be given complimentary tickets; the ratio that we use is 1:10. Additional chaperone tickets are granted on a case-by-case basis. Please inform your peers of this remarkable event and have a field trip together.

Tickets may be obtained either by advance purchase or reservation. To obtain tickets, please print out an appropriate form and complete it. You may send it via fax or regular mail. Once tickets have been ordered, we will supply more information about where to drop off and park the buses.

Schools that buy or reserve tickets in advance will receive a student worksheet that includes activities, questions, and tasks that students can use as a guide at the auto show. The student worksheet will focus on emerging automotive technologies that benefit the environment. We will provide teachers with detailed answers to the questions and links for more information.

Student Lunch Coupons

Thanks to the cooperation of Savor...Chicago at McCormick Place, we have been able to provide coupons for discounted food to our student groups. Coupons can be pick up at the Group Ticket Room. Please do not pay in advance; this is a coupon not a lunch voucher. The coupon, along with $6.50, is valid for a discount on a slice of pizza or a hot dog and a drink.

Group Ticket Sales

Discounted tickets are available for groups of 20 or more on the weekdays. Tickets may be ordered in advance by printing out a form and completing it. You may send it via fax or regular mail. Once tickets have been ordered, we will supply more information of where to drop off and park the buses.
