First day at the Chicago Auto Show!

Posted by: Liz Healy

Hello from the 2010 Chicago Auto Show! We drove in this morning and we are already hard at work. Since our arrival we have already learned how to process credentials, blog on the official CAS website and have taken a tour of the entire floor. As a first time Auto Show attendee, it has been quite the eye-opening experience. Our room in the Hyatt is luxurious and we feel right at home in the Windy City!

The scene on the floor is an extravaganza. There are crates, tarps, ladders, cranes and cars everywhere you look. It's amazing to think that the entire show is put together in only four days! The CAS set-up crews are working diligently to make sure that everything is ready by tomorrow night. Here in the media center we've already met some high-profile media such as Charlie Wojociechowski from NBC5 News.

We've also been greeted by Dave Sloan (CATA President and Co-Auto Show General Manager) and Jerry Cizek (Co-Auto Show General Manager) from the Chicago Auto Show Executive Board. The entire CAS staff has been extremely helpful and so inviting. This week looks like it will be a lot of hard work but it will be great fun and very rewarding!
