I can’t wait for the Kansas City Auto Show on March 5-9! There will be so many amazing vehicles to check out, 500 new cars to be exact. If you want to check out the latest model of your favorite brand, then I would come down to the KC International Auto Show.  Product specialist will be there to provide answers to any of your questions. The Auto Show will kick off with a Jay Leno concert on March 5th! He will be performing at the Bartle Hall in Kansas City to benefit Children’s Mercy. What’s Children’s Mercy? Well it’s one of the nation’s top pediatric medical centers and it’s located right here in Kansas City, MO. Children’s Mercy has 600 pediatricians and researchers ranging through 40 subspecialties. The money that is raised from the Jay Leno concert will help the funding of this great organization. I’m honored to be the chairperson to such a great event! I’m the first and youngest Auto Show Chairman, and I’m hoping to bring a new perspective and energy to the show!

Auto Show Recap

March 13, 2013
The Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Kansas City has many roles here on a local level. In a nutshell, our mission is to advance, educate and encourage public interest. And our claim to fame is owning and producing the Kansas City International Auto Show each year. The theme behind this year’s Auto Show, which took place last weekend, was “IMAGINE.” The purpose was to showcase 500+ vehicles under one roof. No dealerships, no salesmen, just good ole’ cars! Some special attractions were Electric Avenue; which was a collection of the newest plug-in electric vehicles from all the major automakers. Chevy Music Showcase offered local bands, like Soft Reeds & The Silver Maggies, to provide a little rhythm while we were scoping the cars. Among other attractions were a Chiefs exhibit and an Interactive Army Exhibit.

From the perspective of an Auto Dealer, the show was a success. Attendance was up 17% and ticket revenue up 24%. Chevrolet was the overall Best of Show, and the Favorite Vehicle was the 2014 Chevy Impala; Favorite Exhibit was Ford, and the Favorite Consumer Experience was the KC Auto Museum’s Classic Cars. 2014 Chevrolet Impala It’s always great to see an interest in the automobile industry here on a local level. Makes me proud! Stay tuned! Next year’s Auto Show ChairMAN is yours truly!!!
