The VIP Industry Preview Package returns to NAIAS, offering an exclusive onsite networking lounge and a front-row seat to the latest mobility-focused technologies and innovative platforms from global automakers, suppliers and startups.

Industry Preview is Wednesday, Jan. 17 – Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018.

Again for the upcoming show, Industry Preview ticket holders are invited to attend AutoMobili-D on Sunday, Jan. 14, Monday, Jan. 15 and Tuesday, Jan. 16, prior to the start of Industry Preview.
