DETROIT – The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) announced today the official press conference schedule for the 2017 NAIAS Press Preview, Jan. 8-10.

“NAIAS is among the leaders in global media coverage, executive attendance and industry-shaping content, making it the most influential annual automotive event in the world,” said Sam Slaughter, 2017 NAIAS Chairman.

With over 300 exhibitors all under one roof, ranging from global automakers to suppliers to tech startups, NAIAS will truly be the mobility epicenter and will showcase the full automotive ecosystem. NAIAS expects to have over 5,000 credentialed journalists from 60+ different countries attend Press Preview, keeping NAIAS strongly in the lead among domestic shows in terms of global media coverage.

Press Conference Schedule

Press Credentials

Journalists are encouraged to register online via the NAIAS website. To receive credentials by mail, journalists must apply during the early registration period that ends Dec. 16, 2016. After Dec. 16, journalists may still register online, but will need to collect their credentials in person at Cobo Center on or after Jan. 3, 2017.

Media Data Asset Management Portal

For 2017, NAIAS has again partnered with IBM, a global leader in innovation and technology, for the NAIAS Media Data Asset Management portal that will house content from our OEM, supplier and sponsor partners. Credentialed media members will be able to access content ranging from press releases to graphics to video all in one portal, alleviating the need for journalists to have to find this content on these companies’ respective websites. This portal is available to access on naias.com under the Press tab and then select "IBM Content Management Portal." Credentialed journalists' individual email is the username and the password is NAIAS2017.
