Chicago Auto Show Returns This July With Outdoor Shows

May 4, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The organizers of the International Auto Show in Chicago (USA) say that their event, which was previously canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, will still take place this year and will take place in July.

The coronavirus pandemic has closed many public events over the past year, including car dealerships that have already struggled to attract automakers and visitors. However, with vaccinations spreading around the world, some semblance of normality is just around the corner, and the Chicago Auto Show is helping. He is due to return in July this year in a new format following the show’s cancellation earlier this year.

The show usually takes place in February, although the pandemic has forced organizers to postpone it.

Instead, this year’s auto show will take place between July 15-19, which is much shorter than usual. In 2020, just before the coronavirus turned into a global pandemic, the public show ran from 8 to 17 February. The show will also have a new format, for the first time exhibits will be presented both inside and outside. There will be test tracks and dedicated locations for technology demonstrations.

The show organizers plan to use e-tickets and temporary “entry windows” to regulate attendance and capacity at the event. It’s unclear which automakers will be attending the event, but that’s not the only thing the companies will have to plan for this year. The Detroit Auto Show is canceled again, but in its place will be the Motor Bella, which will take place in Pontiac, Michigan, USA, and will be held entirely in the open air. Public Speaking Days run from 23 to 26 September.

Later this year, the Los Angeles Auto Show is due to take place, of course, it all depends on the future situation with the pandemic. It will also have a shorter format and will last only two days – November 17 and 18.

Last month, organizers of the Tokyo Auto Salon announced the cancellation of this year’s exhibition – the show may resume its work in 2022. The only recently held auto show was a showroom in Shanghai, China, where automakers were eager to showcase new models and concepts.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Mazda lifted the curtain over the CX-30 EV at the Shanghai Motor Show. Japanese brand Mazda quietly unveiled its new electric car at the Shanghai Auto Show. The novelty was named CX-30 EV. The new crossover is based on the CX-30 with an ICE engine.
