Social Media Guide to #CAS15

Posted by: Jennifer Morand

The 2015 Chicago Auto Show is on its way and we want to provide you with ultimate guide to the nation’s largest auto show. Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Google+ Pinterest and Vine to participate in one of our contests listed below and win some of our fabulous prizes – such as free pairs of tickets, restaurant gift cards, overnight hotel stays, a pair of tickets to our black-tie charity gala event First Look for Charity, VIP red carpet experiences and more. Be sure to use our official hashtag #CAS15!

Now through the end of the January, you’ve got the chance to share your best #Excuse4CAS as to why you need a day off of work/school/being a stay-at-home mom to attend the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. We’ve even crafted a downloadable excuse letter for you to print off and fill out before turning into your boss/teacher/spouse. We will select random winners via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the course of the month and will grant a few fans their wish of playing “hooky” to explore the nation’s largest auto show.


Beginning on Jan. 12, you can submit why you can’t wait to get a #FirstLook of at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show to win a pair of tickets to the benevolent 2015 First Look for Charity black-tie event. One winner from Facebook and one from Twitter will receive a sneak peek at the industry’s hottest vehicles and cutting-edge technologies, get to sample upscale cuisine from Chicago top restaurants, have the chance to win one of two Ford vehicles (a 2015 Ford Fusion and a 2015 Ford Explorer) given away at the event. Plus, experience a meet-and-greet on the red carpet with local TV personalities Ryan Chiaverini, Val Warner and Ji Suk Yi from ABC Chicago’s “Windy City” LIVE show.
