“We are happy to welcome back Autotrader as our Presenting Sponsor for the 2017 Cleveland Auto Show,” says Ken Ganley, president of the Ganley Auto Group and chairman of the Cleveland Auto Show. “The Show is always a great place to learn about all the new vehicles currently on the market. It’s also a great place to learn about all the new technological content on today’s vehicles, including new connectivity and driver’s assistance features.”
With more than 1,000 concepts, pre-production vehicles and new vehicles on display, the Cleveland Auto Show marks the start of the automotive spring selling season in Northern Ohio. Held annually at the I-X Center, the Cleveland Auto Show is considered one of the top five auto shows in the nation and is rated as one of the strongest in the nation in terms of its impact on the regional market.

Each day of the Show, attendees also will also be able to enter to win the Official Vehicle Giveaway Vehicle. Specifics on this year’s Official Giveaway Vehicle Contest will be released at a later date.
“The Cleveland Auto Show is a must, if you’re in the market for a new vehicle,” adds Ganley. “It’s also a great place to take the whole family for a day or evening of fun and entertainment.”
Show hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Opening Friday night runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information on the Cleveland Auto Show, or to purchase tickets online with no convenience fee courtesy of Huntington Bank, head to www.clevelandautoshow.com, and click on “Buy Tickets.”
