The event will again be both an indoor and outdoor show, with ride-and-drives and the return of Chicago Drives Electric, an area dedicated to electric vehicle test drives and education.
"The Chicago Auto Show is a cornerstone event for the city, and we are excited to open our doors again this winter welcoming attendees to experience the latest vehicles, technology and activations," Chairman JC Phelan said.
The Chicago Drives Electric area will feature an indoor EV test track, which allows attendees to ride inside the latest electric vehicles. Attendees will also be able to visit the EV hub to learn more about topics including at-home charge, range anxiety, maintenance and EV ownership costs.
The 2024 show will also feature special themed days:
The 2024 Chicago Auto Show will also bring back Chicago Friday Night Flights, a local craft beer sampling event, and the Toyota Miles Per Hour run, where runners can take in the auto show through a 2.4 loop inside McCormick Place before doors open to the public.
The black tie charity gala, First Look for Charity, will be held the evening of Friday, Feb. 9 at McCormick Place. Since it started, First Look for Charity has raised $60 million for local charities in the Chicago area. It will once again feature gourmet food and beverages, musical entertainment, and a chance to win a new 2024 Chevrolet Blazer.
