L.A. Show Points to Big Things for the Cleveland Auto Show
Cleveland, OH (December 1, 2010)—The Automotive Show season opened in Los Angeles last month to a renewed enthusiasm not seen in the automotive industry in recent years. The Los Angeles Show saw the introduction of more than 50 new models, 20 of which were completely new models seen for the very first time. Many of those new models will also make the trip to the Cleveland Auto Show, presented by AutoTrader.com, when it opens to the public on February 26, 2011 at the I-X Center.
“As one of the largest auto shows in the nation, the Cleveland Auto Show always gets manufacturers’ best concepts, pre-production and production vehicles,” says Bill Burke of the Spitzer Auto Group and chairman of the 2011 Cleveland Auto Show. “This year, we expect to have more vehicles on hand and more interactive ride-n-drives than ever before.”
With sales up nationwide in the double digits, and the industry on pace to easily exceed 11 million units this year, optimism at the Los Angeles Show replaced last year’s pessimism. The fact that Ford announced a record profit in its third quarter and General Motors began its IPO recently, also helped improve the mood of automotive insiders, who see the market back on a strong and steady growth track.
Considered the first show of the season, the Los Angeles Auto Show is second only to the North American International Auto Show in size. The Cleveland Auto Show is considered among the top five auto shows in the nation, boasting more than 1.2 million square feet of exhibition space.
“The Cleveland Auto Show is the one place where you can see all the industry has to offer in one setting,” says Louis A. Vitantonio, Jr., president of the Show. “The crop of new concepts and production vehicles this year is unlike any other. With the industry on the rebound, there will be more to see than ever before.”
