Chicago Auto Show

The title for the 2007 Chicago Auto Show.

The Chicago Auto Show is held annually in February at Chicago's McCormick Place convention complex. It is among the largest auto shows in North America.

The event, first produced in 1901, has been staged more times than any other auto show in North America and continues to be one of the best-attended in the world. Over one million visitors attend each year. The Chicago Auto Show has lately seen a growing number of important introductions.

2008 marked the Chicago Auto Show's 100th iteration. It is the first auto show anywhere in the world to have achieved this distinction.

Due to the vast amount of space available, several auto manufacturers have implemented creative uses of their exhibit space in recent years. For example, at the 2006 Chicago Auto Show, Pontiac and Chrysler hosted free concerts at their exhibits. The BoDeans and OK Go are among those who performed at Pontiac's stage. Chrysler Group created the world's largest indoor test track, and allowed attendees to ride along on a test-drive of their SUVs and trucks in extreme simulated conditions in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008;[1] Toyota configured a similar experiential ride course for the 2011 show.[2]
