The auto show will take place July 15-19.
The Chicago Auto Show will take place this year at McCormick Place, Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office confirmed Tuesday morning, marking the first convention to be held there since the onset of the pandemic.
The show will take place July 15-19 — shorter than the normal nine-day run in February, according to industry sources.
And due to COVID-19 safety precautions, the number of people allowed to attend the event at any one time will be limited to 10,000 people.
The show itself will move to McCormick Place’s West Building, and part of the show will be held outside along Indiana Avenue where test drives will take place.
Plans for a street festival along Indiana Avenue that will feature cars, entertainment, food and drink are also in the works.
The convention will be a trial run of sorts for other conventions awaiting green lights.
Check back for more details later this morning.
