The Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America. The show started in 1901 and has been staged more than any other automobile show or exposition in North America. 2014 celebrates the 106th staging of the Chicago Auto Show.

Held every February, the Chicago Auto Show hosts over one million attendees annually. It is a boon to the city of Chicago, especially tourism, hospitality, restaurant, and entertainment venues.

There will also be numerous auto accessory, auto-related exhibits, competition vehicles and project cars, concept cars, antique and collector cars.
