Jamie Butters is the executive editor of Automotive News and co-host of the Automotive News’ Daily Drive podcast. He says the auto show tried to increase visitor participation by moving to September, despite still not seeing much of an increased interest from the public.
“Staying in January you are going to continue to be bullied and dominated by CES (Consumer Electronic Show), which has really become the pre-eminent auto show in North America, if not the world,” says Butters.
