Splashy Displays Return to Auto Show

The North American International Auto Show opens to the media on January 11, five days before the public gets to see the shiny cars and eye-catching displays at Detroit’s Cobo Center. The chairman of this year’s show, Paul Sabatini, says automakers have spent $200 million on their exhibits, most of which are new or different. Sabatini tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller an event this big requires a lot of advance planning. He says more than 800-thousand people attended last year’s show. The 2016 version opens to the public on January 16. Click on the audio player to hear the conversation.
