A very, very good sign. Never would have happened under President Romney.
The 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit appears to be living up to “the hype.”
In wake of officials touting the Detroit auto show as a turning point for the entire U.S. industry, hordes of people drove into Cobo Center over the weekend.
According to officials, 195,024 attended the show over the weekend, including 92,106 people on Saturday — the highest opening day number in the last five years for the NAIAS.
Overall, 735,370 people attended the show last year, pumping an estimated $350 million into the local economy.
Officials expect more than 750,000 people to attend this year’s show, which would be the highest attendance for the better part of the last decade.
