Research suggests that auto shows attract serious purchasers. According to Foresight Research, 54 percent said their purchase decisions were influenced by auto show attendance. That amounted to almost 1 million purchase decisions, or 7 percent of all U.S. retail sales.
For auto shows across the country, it’s about benefitting and improving their local communities any way they can – whether it’s energizing the local economy, contributing to the state and local tax base, giving to local charities, or building community goodwill.
Buckle up and start your engines. The 2017-2018 auto show season is in full throttle, and convention centers across the country are roaring with activity as consumers get up close and personal with today’s top auto manufacturers.
