Despite some of the coldest weather on record, the 2014 North American International Auto Show delivered its best turnout in over a decade as it wrapped up over the weekend.
Even with snow blowing fiercely and temperatures plummeting, more than 102,000 visitors made it down to Detroit’s Cobo Center on Sunday to give the 25th anniversary of the event a strong finish. In all, organizers report 803,451 paid visitors passed through the convention center during its nearly two-week run.
That doesn’t include the 5,169 journalists who came in for the NAIAS media preview on January 13th and 14th. That included reporters from 60 countries and 39 states, according to the Detroit Auto Dealers Association, or DADA, the retailer group that sponsors the annual show.
