Auto Show Passport app to be launched at 2014 Detroit Auto Show

Article by Anita Panait, on December 11, 2013

Organizers of the upcoming Detroit auto show will promote a new app next month during the event. Rod Alberts, executive director of the North American International Auto Show, remarked that the new free app -- Auto Show Passport -- will showcase auto shows from all over the world. “People understand the global aspect of auto shows. It’s really just taking that to people all over the world,” Alberts remarked.

He said the app will not replace auto shows since “you still want to kick tires,” but it enhances the auto shows.” Auto Show Passport allows users to access photos of vehicles at most major auto shows around the world, including those from some high-profile auto-related events like the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and the Specialty Equipment Market Association show.

According to Alberts, every time fresh photos are available at an auto show, the photos will run on the app. He said the app will contain a gallery in which a user can click on cars on that show. The app also features a section where a user can spin a globe and go to other shows by clicking on the map.

Alberts added that the app will also filter all green cars featured in any auto show listed as well as a virtual garage feature that allows users to share photos of their favorite cars with their friends. The Detroit auto show has a separate app called the NAIAS app that was launched last year. NAIAS displays only the vehicles and information presented at the Detroit show, according to Alberts.
