Chicago Auto Show: By the Numbers

What if we told you it takes just 10 days to construct the nation’s largest auto show?

“As a major auto show, we’re proud of the fact that we can turn an empty exhibit hall into a show-ready event with glistening automobiles ready for media and public consumption in just less than two weeks,” said Chicago Auto Show Director of Show Operations Chris Konecki.

Here’s a look at the Chicago Auto Show – by the numbers:

  • 10 total days to complete the move-in process 
  • 30,000 feet of overhead truss 
  • 6,000 lighting instruments 
  • 1 million sq. ft. of flooring – both carpet and raised 
  • 100 semi-trailer loads of display material assembled  
  • 3 indoor test tracks (Jeep, Kia and Toyota)     constructed and tested  
  • Nearly 1,000 of the latest cars, trucks and SUVs arrive and placed on the show floor
