Article by Christian Andrei, on January 3, 2013

The 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) will have over 50 vehicle debuts with most of them being global launches. This event has always been where automakers displayed their best vehicles. Jim Seavitt, chairman, 2013 NAIAS, said that this show is a “reflection of the positive changes” that are taking place in the auto industry.

He added that the official NAIAS Press Conference Schedule, which was just released, cites the most prominent automakers and mentions almost 40 official events to be held at Press Preview on Jan. 14-15, 2013. He said that the excitement is up and that the international media registration is up 15%.

With more than 50 worldwide and North American unveilings at the NAIAS, it proves how confident the automakers are in this show, which is comparable to shows in Geneva, Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo, and Beijing/Shanghai. Majority of the NAIAS press conferences will happen at Detroit's Cobo Center, which is presently in the second of a three-phase expansion plan. Meanwhile, several events are scheduled to be at the new three-story glass atrium that faces the Detroit River.

The only offsite press conference is by Ford Motor Company at the Joe Louis Arena on Jan. 15. Journalists may apply for credentials at naias.com/media/credentials.aspx. Applications have to be received by Dec. 21 in order to get credentials by mail. However, credential applications will still be received after Dec. 21, and, upon approval, credentials will be given in January on-site at Cobo Center. The last day for the acceptance of credential applications is Dec. 31.
