Dear 2013 Chicago Auto Show Exhibitor:
Welcome to the 105th edition of the Chicago Auto Show and our online exhibitor manual at www.chicagoautoshow.com/exhibitors. If you want to use the search feature, simply download it as a PDF. As always, please note the deadline dates to take advantage of the savings offered.
Please make special note to the adjustment of our dates, if you haven't done so already. The first public day of our show is Saturday, February 9, and the show will stay open through Monday, February 18. We look forward to taking advantage of the Presidents' Day holiday on the last day of the show. This change means that our Media Preview (Thursday and Friday, Feb. 7 and 8) and the First Look for Charity (Friday evening, Feb. 8) also change days.
The second day of our media preview, once again dedicated to social media, has been rebranded #SMP13. We expect a much larger attendance for that day than in years prior, so please staff your exhibits accordingly. PR and social media teams from each exhibitor will receive detailed communication from the show about this day. Additional questions can be directed to Mark Bilek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a friendly reminder, all exhibitor and corporate credential registration will be online. For those who wait until they are on-site, exhibitor and corporate credential registration will be located in room S401 on Level 4 of McCormick Place South beginning Tuesday, Feb. 5. Registration details are in Bulletin 11 of this manual.
Beginning Friday, Feb. 1, until Monday, Feb. 18, all Chicago Automobile Trade Association and show management offices will be in McCormick Place. All phone and fax numbers together with E-mail addresses pertaining to show management are located in both the General Information tab and the Quick Links section of our exhibitor manual. For any additional questions regarding the show, do not hesitate to contact us.
