Last month, I was invited to attend the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) with 149 other bloggers by Ford Canada. Well the day has come!

I’m really excited, as this will be my first time to the auto show in Detroit – the Motor City (or as I like to call it – Detroit Rock City – Yes, I’m a huge KISS fan)! I attend the Toronto show every year, and look forward to seeing what all the manufacturers will be offering in their showrooms later that year. As always, it willbe awesome to see all the cool concept vehicles, some of which will never make it to a showroom! Well Detroit is the Grand-daddy of them all, and i’m stoked about being there!

As part of the NAIAS experience, I also get to visit Ford Headquarters, and take part in Ford’s Innovation and Design Fantasy Camp.
Some of the things we will be taking part in are:

  • Interactive Vehicle Design Exercise
  • Sustainable Materials Lab Exploration
  • Clay Modeling Experience
  • Digital Design Tools Presentation
  • Camouflage Clinic
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist and SYNC Demonstrations
  • I am not only looking forward to the NAIAS event itself, but meeting the many other bloggers and “micro-bloggers” (tweeters) — some I’ve met before, and some I will meet for the first time!

    As always, I will have my camera to capture all the awesomeness that is awaiting me in The Motor City!

    Cheers,
    Big Daddy
