Always working to meet OEMs and auto show counterparts in other cities, a team of WANADA leaders traveled to the Detroit Auto Show – officially known as the North American International Auto Show – to do just that. WANADA reps met with personnel from Chrysler, Ford, Hyundai, Nissan, Subaru, Toyota, NADA, the state of Michigan, and J.D. Power, among others, in Detroit.
Representing WANADA, was its chairman John Bowis, Chevy Chase Acura; John O’Donnell, WANADA CEO; Joe Koch, vice president, association operations; Chris Hosford, director of communications, Washington Auto Show; Bob Storin, vice president of marketing, Washington Auto Show; and Bob Yoffe, exposition director, Washington Auto Show.
If The Washington Auto Show is the Public Policy Show, and about the latest technology innovations, then the Detroit Auto Show this year is about horsepower. With gas prices low nationwide and several automakers drastically downsizing their passenger cars, trucks and SUVs– like the Ford Explorer, Cadillac XT6, and Kia Telluride– were the star attractions.Download Bulletin PDF
