We are just a few days into 2011 and we are on the verge of two huge events, the first is CES, which we have discussed on a number of occasions, and the second is the Detroit Auto Show. However, there are two other shows coming up this month, the Portland Auto Show and the Philly Auto Show.
Let us take a little look at the schedule for each event, as well as take a look at a few others that will take place this year. We know that the Detroit show begins on January 10th, but the public will have to wait until the 15th to gain access to what the top carmakers have planned for us this year. However, the likes of Autoblog and Inside Line will give us an insight to each of these vehicles before the public dates.
The NAIAS website has a huge deal of information available, and for those attending will certainly need to view the virtual show floor. This will allow you to navigate around the show on your computer or smartphone. For more details visit the official NAIAS website.
The Portland Auto Show begins on January 27th — so not long after Detroit has closed its doors. Not many shows like this allow you to test drive new vehicles, but GM, KIA, Honda and VW will be on hand to offer you the chance to drive one of their new vehicles. Get more details by visiting Portlandautoshow.com.
Finally we have the Philly Auto Show starting on January 29th, so will crossover into the Portland show for one day. The Philadelphia show will go on for 9 days, and will give you the chance to see some of the cars that you might have missed during Detroit, more details here.
Visit Inside Line for a complete list of all the auto shows for 2011. Let us hope that 2011 will be a better year for the auto industry when it comes to recalls, as 2010 will be one that we would rather forget.
