The public portion of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show will run Saturday, Feb. 9, through Monday, Feb. 18.
This will be the first time since 1998 that the show will open to the public on a Saturday. Show organizers decided to shift the dates for 2013 to take advantage of the Presidents Day holiday.
The Chicago Auto Show's black-tie benevolent event, First Look for Charity, will shift from Thursday to Friday, Feb. 8. "It's a move our charities have asked for and it will, no doubt, increase attendance at one of Chicago's most popular charity events," said 2013 Chicago Auto Show Co-Chairman Kurt Schiele in a statement.
Also, Kurt Schiele of Elmhurst BMW, Jaguar and Toyota-Scion, was recently selected as the 2012-2013 Chicago Automobile Trade Association chairman and the 2013 Chicago Auto Show co-chairman. Schiele will lead a board of 15 dealers and succeeds Michael Ettleson, who becomes chairman of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
