Chicago Auto Show Announces 2013 Dates: February 9-18

The nation's largest auto show takes advantage of the Presidents Day holiday to heighten exhibitor value: the public portion of 2013 Chicago Auto Show will now run from Saturday, Feb. 9 through Monday, Feb. 18, which marks the first time since 1998 that the show will open to the public on a Saturday.

"From years past, we know that Presidents Day at the Chicago Auto Show is huge from an attendance standpoint and we want to ensure as many people as possible can attend our show," said 2013 Chicago Auto Show Chairman Mike Ettleson. "This will help give our exhibitors the best value and best opportunity to reach new buyers."

The Chicago Auto Show's black-tie benevolent event, First Look for Charity, will shift from Thursday to Friday, Feb. 8. "It's a move our charities have asked for and it will, no doubt, increase attendance at one of Chicago's most popular charity events," says 2013 Chicago Auto Show Co-Chairman Kurt Schiele.

Accordingly, the Media Preview for the Chicago Auto Show will begin Thursday, Feb. 7 and conclude Friday, Feb. 8. Please visit ChicagoAutoShow.com or Facebook.com/ChicagoAutoShow for more information.
