The North American International Auto Show 2013 Starts One Week Later image

One of the most important auto shows, the North American International Auto Show, will start one week later than normal in 2013.

Jim Seavitt, chairman of the 2013 show, declared that this decision was taken to move the event farther away from the holidays making the schedule more convenient for journalists and auto industry executives.

“Each year our dates move up one day on the calendar so every five or six years, we need to make an adjustment, and push the show back one week,” Seavitt said in a statement. “We do our best to keep some distance between the holidays and our opening, and many people have expressed appreciation for that.”

On Monday, January 14th and Tuesday, January 15th will take place the press conferences for 2013 Detroit Auto Show, while on Friday, January 18th it is scheduled the Charuty Preview, a black-tie gala that benefits children’s charities. The event is set to take place from January 19th until Janury 27th, 2013.

There is already considerable excitement building for the North American International Auto Show 2013, which again is expected to host numerous industry announcements and global product introductions.
