Vroom! This Saturday begins the 2017 Chicago Auto Show at McCormick Place. If you're going to be staying with us here at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza here in the Windy City, the auto show makes for a great day of fun and spectacle with the whole family. Returning for its 109th year, this is the largest auto show in the whole country. It features showcases of the most major domestic and international auto manufacturers, as well as offering a glimpse into the future of automobile travel with concept designs and experimental models. The show runs from February 11th through the 20th.
In addition to all of the great displays and booths found throughout the massive show space, there will also be an array of fun events, shows, and keynote speakers featured throughout the 10-day show. On the eve of the show, there will be a special charity kickoff event. This black-tie affair offers guests a first look at the show, gourmet food and beverages, and live entertainment in an effort to raise money for local charities throughout the city.
Year in and year out, a consistently favorite part of the show is its concept cars. Ordinary folks can get an exclusive look at some of the coolest models being worked on today. Be sure to check out XFINITY Future of Awesome Concepts Tour and you can even enter a competition to win prizes!
You don't have to be a car nut to appreciate all the awesome stuff at this auto show. It'll be just minutes from us here at the Holiday Inn, so be sure to stop by during your stay!
