Detroit mayor checks out site of upcoming auto show downtown
DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan checked out the still-under-construction site of the upcoming auto show downtown.
The mayor was joined on Monday’s tour by auto show chair Bill Golling and vice chair Doug North as well as a throng of media members as he walked around the floor of the Cobo Center convention hall.
The annual North American International Auto Show gets underway with a media preview in a week’s time. It’s open to the public from Jan. 19-27. More than 800,000 people attended the event’s public days a year ago.
The 2020 show will shift to June from January, a development that Duggan praised on Monday, predicting the warmer weather will draw “thousands and thousands of people on the streets of Detroit.”
