Chicago Auto Show Expands to Two Halls

2023 Chicago Auto Show
2023 Chicago Auto Show Returns to McCormick Place Feb. 11-20

Today, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA), producer and organizer of the Chicago Auto Show announced that it will reopen McCormick Place’s north exhibit hall. This will allow for a 2-hall show, as well as re-enlisting brands that were lost during the pandemic. The Chicago Auto Show 2023, February 11-20, will be the most immersive yet. It will feature outdoor ride-and drive opportunities as well as a few brand-new indoor test tracks, including a 100,000-square-foot destination for EV testing and education.

The 2023 show will also bring back fan-favorite activities that were lost during the pandemic. These include Chicago Friday Night Flights, which is a local craft beer tasting event, and the Toyota Miles Per Hour Run, in which runners can experience the autoshow via a 2.4 mile loop within McCormick Place.

The Chicago Drives Electric indoor track will be a major highlight of the 2023 show, building on the success of its fall EV test drive program. This new area will offer a place for all interested parties to learn and experience everything about EV mobility. Experts will be available to answer questions about EV ownership, including range anxiety, at-home charging solutions, infrastructure and on-the-go charging; tax credits; incentives; and where to start your search.
