Web Site Features New Look for ‘08

Nothing happens these days without a Web site to back up the activities, and the Chicago Auto Show is no exception. What is exceptional, though, is the site’s incredible content and ease of use. 

“With this being our 100th edition, we know that our site is going to get ‘slammed’ by people looking for information about our history,” said Jerry Cizek, general manager of the show. “Our team has put together an online presence that will keep history buffs up way past their normal bed times. It’s an incredible collection of photos and information.

"The CATA has ‘owned’ this show since 1935 and our collection of photography over the years matches anything in the industry. We invite everyone to share in our place in the overall history of this show and what it’s meant locally, nationally and internationally.

“Sure, you always show up and see everything shining and in place for the media preview, but have you ever seen how it goes together?” 

Former German Chancellor Bismarck is generally credited with the quote that, “Politics and sausage are two things you don’t want to see being made.” Perhaps Bismarck (also rumored to be the European inspiration for the guy at Dunkin Donuts) might add to his list the way 1.3 million sq. ft. of auto show goes together in just seven short days. 

But you, as an avowed fan of wanting to know everything about everything, might be interested in seeing a video that lives on www.ChicagoAutoShow.com highlighting the construction of this gargantuan show. It was even tougher pulling it off last year, as temps during the move-in were cold, even by Chicago standards.

Check it out! You’re on the Web site anyway, so take a few moments, back up to a hot coffee and enjoy.
