2018 Detroit North American International Auto Show After-Glow
Happy New Year to everyone! As is customary, we'll kick off the year with two events on January 19th & 20th that celebrate the new sheet metal we'll see on the roads throughout the year, introduced at the first International Auto Show of the season, right in our own backyard.
Join us on Saturday, January 20th, for our annual North American International Auto Show After-Glow at Andiamo Italian Restaurant, 21400 Michigan Ave, Dearborn, MI 48124. We'll start to gather at 6pm, and the cash bar will be open. Dinner will be served at 7 pm, so please plan to arrive ahead of this.
This year our special guest speaker is Mark Phelan. Mark is the auto critic and columnist for the Detroit Free Press. He began covering the auto industry in 1986 and wrote for a variety of newspapers, magazines and online outlets before joining the Free Press in 2002. He has reported on the auto industry from all over the world, including living in Europe and working in Asia, Australia, South America and Africa. Mark has contributed to numerous publications, including the New York Times, Road & Track, and the Car Connection. He is a regular guest on television and radio programs discussing trends shaping the auto industry. He is a dog owner and travels extensively for pleasure, frequently to music festivals. The winner of numerous awards, he is the former president of the Automotive Press Association and a juror for the North American Car and Truck of the Year awards. Phelan was born in Thomasville, Georgia, to Irish parents.
Mark will discuss the automotive industry in his inimitable style. We're sure you'll find Mark very informative and entertaining. We will also have a brief question and answer session.
After Mark's talk, Adam and Frank will present their very entertaining commentary on the hits and misses of
this year's show. You will enjoy their "unique" take on the show.
Please register by Friday January 12 so that we have a good headcount. The registration fee is $60, and covers everything except alcoholic beverages. If you're also planning to attend the Pre-Glow Friday January 19th, please be sure to register for that one as well.
