At 1.2 million sq ft., it’s the largest auto show in the United States.
The Chicago Auto Show is one of the world’s oldest auto shows, dating back to 1901, when the automobile was just in its infancy. With curiosity high, over 4,000 curious folks came to see these new horseless carriages that year. That first auto show was held at the Coliseum, located at 15th and Wabash. Also debuting near the turn of the century (in 1904), the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) has since become the nation’s oldest and largest metropolitan dealer organization. Since 1935, the CATA has produced the Chicago Auto Show.
Held in the enormous McCormick Place convention center on Lake Shore Drive in February, the Chicago Auto Show not only has room for dozens of concept and production vehicles, it housed an entire Chrysler test track in 2004.
