Summer Meeting to focus on key auto show issues

Attendees at this year’s ASNA Summer Meeting can look forward to a number of important discussions and presentations on issues of critical importance to those responsible for the 65 auto shows represented by members of the Automotive Trade Association Executives.

Those issues will include show security, show operations, and the gathering and collection of data, among other topics.

There will also be a session focused on how best to promote the “Power of Auto Shows” study, which was released just prior to last year’s Summer Meeting.

“This study remains one of the best opportunities for show managers in any market to underscore the positive impact of an auto show,” said ASNA spokesperson and PR Consultant Joe Rohatynski. He added that the study has been updated and remains a very powerful tool available to every ASNA member auto show.

Under the topic of show security, issues around increased gate security requirements and how to handle them will be discussed.

There is also an opportunity, say organizers like Mike Gempp, who is 2016 Chair of ASNA, to share best practices when it comes to the management of data and data collection at an auto show.

“We will be organizing an industry panel, with key leaders sharing some of those innovative methods,” said Gempp.

Plans are also underway for a panel representing auto manufacturers and display houses, another important opportunity for the sharing of ideas, trends and industry news.

Gempp added that panel discussions are consistently among the most popular features of the annual summer gathering.

The ASNA Summer Meeting, which takes place ahead of the Automotive Trade Association Executives gathering, will be at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, in Alberta, Canada, on July 12-13.


Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel


This year's event will begin with a kick-off gathering hosted by GES Tuesday evening from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The schedule is designed to accommodate a variety of travel itineraries, allowing everyone to arrive safely and check in to the hotel.

The Auto Show Report will carry more information on the ASNA Summer Meeting in its next issue. In the meantime, contact Mike Gempp or Jennifer Colman for questions or comments on specific agenda items.

Sponsorships for this year's ASNA Summer Meeting are both welcomed and encouraged!

NAIAS launches “AutoMobili-D”

More than 100 companies are expected to take part in a new exposition focused specifically on the rapidly evolving global automotive and mobility landscape. “AutoMobili-D” will run in conjunction with the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The event will open on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017, the day before Press Preview, and run through Industry Preview (Jan. 11-12). Organizers say a prominent industry “thought leader” will keynote the opening of the event. NAIAS will dedicate specific press conference slots for participating AutoMobili-D companies on the afternoons of both Press Days. AutoMobili-D will feature displays in key areas such as Autonomous Driving, Connected Car Technologies and Mobility Services, and Urban Mobility. It will also showcase a special innovation center within the exposition that will feature more than 50 startups. And an indoor track and a number of demonstration stages will be featured. ATAE Rod Alberts, who heads the NAIAS, said the initiative has received positive feedback from automakers, suppliers and partners on the project. “All are eager to participate in AutoMobili-D and showcase their advanced technologies and mobility plans,” he said.


Self-driving coalition launched

A group of automakers and technology companies, including Ford, Volvo, Google, Lyft and Uber, have announced the “Self-Driving Coalition for Safer Streets,” a group that it says would lobby the U.S. federal government to better prepare the nation’s roads for self-driving technology. David Strickland, a former administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, will serve as the group’s counsel and spokesperson. The coalition’s launch follows a January announcement by Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx that his department would accelerate efforts to establish standards for autonomous vehicles.

News Flash: Millennials will buy cars

Conventional wisdom that Millennials are not likely to be big car buyers appears to be off, at least according to a study by Princeton Survey Research Associates and sponsored by Bankrate.com. The study shows that the group, also known as Gen-Y, are more likely to buy a car than any other age group over the coming year. Mike Cetera, personal loans and credit analyst with Bankrate, called the study surprising. “This is starting to shift from what we’ve seen before.” It appears that the aging demographic and an improved economy are behind the change. Nearly one in four of survey respondents said they will be in the market in the next year.

Some vehicles already meet 2025 mileage targets

A new report shows the auto industry is not only managing to meet U.S. federal fuel economy standards but at least in some cases, is exceeding the current mandate. A survey by the Consumer Federation of America said some 56 percent of the newest models in dealer showrooms match or exceed the federal target. What’s even more interesting is that a number of vehicles are already close to meeting a tough, 54.5 mile-per-gallon target that won’t take effect until 2025. Still think trucks and SUVs are a problem from a fuel economy standpoint? It turns out that vehicles getting less than 16 mpg accounted for only 4 percent of the 1,094 models the Consumer Federation looked at for the report, down from 6.1 percent a year ago. As recently as 2008, that percentage was 32.3 percent.

MDOT: 'next 20 years will be messy'

A paradigm shift that will see autonomous vehicles sharing the road will likely result in a “messy transition” says the head of Michigan’s Department of Transportation. Kirk Steudle told this year’s SAE World Congress in Detroit that the shift could be similar to what occurred at the turn of the 20th century, when horseless carriages joined horses and buggies on the road. A second transition, when the interstate highway system was built, limited access for vehicles that were slower and less capable than the vehicles of the day. Steudle said he foresees such a future for autonomous vehicles, with dedicated lanes or entire roadways that are designed for vehicles with lane-keeping technology. “It’s all about mobility—and what we refer to as the new mobility,” said Steudle. “This has the potential to change every single aspect of travel.”

Show Profiles

Bedford: Elections may have stunted attendance

Lots of things combine well with cars, but as ATAE Pete McNamara noted following this year’s New Hampshire Auto Show, elections are likely not on that list.

With virtually flat attendance compared with last year’s 15 percent surge, the show “stuttered” as far as growth was concerned, said McNamara, who said advertising associated with the November election was likely a distraction when it comes to the show.

'We’re still trying to figure out the best dates. We need to get word out to the public that this is a consistent, long-term, ‘here to stay’ show.'
—ATAE Pete McNamara, New Hampshire Auto Show
As a result, the group has already scheduled its upcoming show for November 18-20, bypassing the next election.

“We’re still trying to figure out the best dates,” said McNamara, who heads the New Hampshire Automobile Dealers Association. “We need to get word out to the public that this is a consistent, long-term, ‘here to stay’ show.”

McNamara’s group is already working on that goal, spreading out the word through social media and gearing up to boost the show.

There will also be more concentration on developing relationships with local media, said McNamara.

Moving the dates will also avoid a natural competition with the sunny, gorgeous fall weather that’s typical of October weekends in the Granite State.

Calgary: Lower oil prices impact industry

Right in the heart of Canada’s oil industry, there’s no question that Calgary is feeling the effects of depressed market prices.

And that extends to the auto show, where attendance was down seven percent from 2015.

“When people aren’t buying, they’re not coming to the auto show,” notes Jim Gillespie, who heads the Calgary Motor Dealers Association.

'There are pockets of luxury that are doing well. But companies are continuing to lay off people, so we’re not out of the woods by any means.'
—Jim Gillespie, Calgary International Auto & Truck Show
On the bright side, the show continued raising money through its very successful “Vehicles & Violins” charity gala, which has brought in more than $3.3 million since it began in 2000. Several charities, including Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Alberta, Kids Help Phone, and Fresh Start Recovery Centre, a drug addiction treatment center in the area, benefit from the generosity of show goers.

The show also hosted a Ladies Night, which turned out to be the only day when attendance was up. An assortment of gift bags, with hourly prizes, helped attract larger than usual crowds.

Gillespie points to a very successful system that provides tickets at walk-up kiosks as accounting for about one-third of total ticket sales, complete with a separate entrance.

“There’s no longer any line to get into the show,” he said. “We absorb any credit card fees, which we consider to be a cost of doing business.”

The same company that provides the kiosk system also handles online ticket sales.

Also on the positive side, Gillespie said sponsors of the show continued to provide good support. “We sold out those sponsorships, so that was nice,” he added.

While the overall market is following the economic trials of Canada’s oil patch, some sectors remain positive.

“There are pockets of luxury that are doing well,” said Gillespie. “But companies are continuing to lay off people, so we’re not out of the woods by any means.”

Cleveland: Steady attendance in stable market is something to cheer

When it comes to comparing attendance figures at an auto show, ATAE Lou Vitantonio has an interesting perspective, especially regarding the Cleveland Auto Show, which experienced a 2.3 percent bump over the previous year.

“Moving the needle is not that easy,” he said. “I have a very consistent and committed auto show base that will come every year, so having an increase of just a couple of percentage points, especially after the recession, is something I’m certainly happy with.”

Along with the expected roundup of new vehicles that were featured at this year’s show, Vitantonio and his team stepped up a classic car competition that they’ve been running for some 15 years.

'Moving the needle is not that easy. I have a very consistent and committed auto show base that will come every year, so having an increase of just a couple of percentage points, especially after the recession, is something I’m certainly happy with.'
—ATAE Lou Vitantonio, Cleveland Auto Show
In prior years, only about half the entrants in the competition were on display and available for auction.

This year, Vitantonio decided to change that model, with all the vehicles going on display for auction, with some, but not all, coming with a reserve price.

The change was positive, said Vitantonio.

“People really like to see old cars and in this case, if they were interested, they could even try to buy one,” he added.

On the new side of the aisle, a series of Ride and Drive events was as popular as ever, including two indoor selections (from Ram truck and Jeep), along with seven outdoor Ride and Drives, from Ford, Mazda, Chrysler, Toyota, Chevrolet, Subaru and Kia.

A relatively warm winter resulted in no issues, although Vitantonio said it was almost too warm for the market. “The problem is that people will find things to do outside."

Vitantonio sees a trend toward entertainment at an auto show, especially when it comes to interactive displays that focus on a vehicle’s capabilities, although there are often opportunities for entertainment options that have little do with a vehicle.

“We have to play to that,” he said. “It can’t just be about the cars.”

Columbus: Size matters in Ohio’s biggest city; crowds make the difference

As the largest city in Ohio, the state capital and home to the Ohio State University, Columbus has its own personality, one that is also reflective in the Columbus Auto Show.

Managed by Marie Gilman, who does so on behalf of the Columbus Auto Dealers Association, the show’s big strengths come from its sheer size.

'We get more manufacturers helping with displays. We also get more product specialists and dealers appreciate the fact that they have help when it comes to the show.'
—Marie Gilman, Columbus International Auto Show
“We get more manufacturers helping with displays,” notes Gilman. “We also get more product specialists and dealers appreciate the fact that they have help when it comes to the show.”

Ride and Drives are also a big part of the Columbus show, with Ram trucks returning for the fourth year of its event, which is held indoors.

“Year after year, they just kill it,” said Gilman, the smile clearly coming through in her voice.

A second Ride and Drive event, Subaru’s “Love Spring” experience, was also a hit.

“Both manufacturers liked the numbers,” said Gilman.

Features such as “Matt the Balloon Guy” and “Jen the Face Painter” (who happens to be Matt’s wife) were big family draws and a weekend partnership with the Columbus Zoo also helped boost attendance.

With Columbus being a sports town, the appearance of Braxton Miller, who was poised to be picked up in the NFL Draft, generated a wait of 90 minutes for those wanting an autograph.

A new show addition was an “Accessory Avenue,” with a local company that works through dealerships to provide customized packages, prominently featured.

“They put together a nice display at the show, a ‘Buckeye Truck’ that included a big TV in the back, which had March Madness games featured,” said Gilman.

The Ohio State Design Department was also a partner at the show, with an Art on Wheels gallery that included results of a competition by students, with six winners selected.

Those entries had their designs turned into car wraps by a local company, with the winner receiving a $5,000 scholarship.

The display of an Acura 2017 NSX was also a highlight of the show, especially noteworthy given that the vehicle is being produced in Ohio at the Marysville plant.

Dayton: Big boost to attendance after snow-plagued previous year

A whopping 39 percent increase in attendance over last year’s Dayton Auto Show is largely a recovery number given the effect of a snowstorm that hit the 2015 event.

So says Marie Gilman, who manages the event on behalf of the Dayton Area Automobile Dealers Association.

'We made sure we made the point (that we had at least a couple of manufacturers returning to the show) and (the media) promoted that fact. I think it made a difference.'
—Marie Gilman, Dayton Auto Show
Even so, Gilman has reason to celebrate, notably due to the presence of at least a couple of manufacturers—Volvo and Infiniti—that hadn’t participated in recent years.

“We made sure we made that point to the local media and they promoted that fact,” said Gilman. “I think it made a difference.”

This year featured a first ever Ride and Drive at the show, with Toyota’s Drive Center drawing its share of attention. “It was a big hit and Toyota was ‘super happy’ with the turnout,” said Gilman.

In fact, the numbers were comparable to what Toyota had seen in Cincinnati, a larger show and larger city, possibly due to a premium spot in the hall that made the Ride and Drive one of the first things visitors saw when they arrived at the show.

Promotions such as the giveaway of a two-year lease on a vehicle—a Chevy Malibu courtesy of the Miami Valley Chevy Dealers—helped drive traffic as well.

An appearance by the “Ben-Gals” cheerleaders of the NFL Cincinnati Bengals was also a big hit.

There were also a number of family friendly features. “Parents know they’ll have something to keep the kids entertained and they appreciate that fact.”

And on the car front, a BMW dealer brought the automaker’s i8 to the show. “That was the most highly photographed car at the show,” said Gilman.

Harrisburg: Good weather, family friendly experience helps drive gate

A combination of favorable weather and some additional content that appealed to families is being credited with a nine percent increase in attendance at this year’s Pennsylvania Auto Show.

“We definitely focus on the family at this show,” said Donald Perry, president of Faulkner Honda in Harrisburg and chair of this year’s show. “That’s certainly the case on Sunday, but throughout the show we have lots of things for kids to do besides seeing the newest in vehicles.”

'We definitely focus on the family at this show. That’s certainly the case on Sunday, but throughout the show we have lots of things for kids to do besides seeing the newest in vehicles.'
-Don Perry, chair, Pennsylvania Auto Show
One notable highlight was a 200-foot “zip line” which was set up to extend 27 feet over the show floor, with two people able to ride at any given time.

“There was always a line next to it,” noted Perry.

Dovetailing with the popularity of Ride and Drive experiences at this and other shows, organizers set up a kids version of a “test drive”—complete with battery operated mini-vehicles, all sponsored by various dealerships.

Of local interest, show attendees got to meet members of the Red Land Little League baseball team, which won the U.S. championship in 2015.

From Perry’s perspective, the show was everything a group of dealers could have hoped it would be, an opportunity for people, quite likely at least half of whom say they’ll be in the market within the next year, to check out the latest automotive offerings.

“We also included a display of pre-owned vehicles at this year’s show,” added Perry.

Toledo: More social media advertising drives attendance

Accounting for a 14 percent increase in attendance at this season’s Toledo Auto Show was relatively easy for Marie Gilman, who manages the event (along with shows in Columbus and Dayton as part of her job with the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association).

“We did a lot more digital advertising this year, which had a big impact,” said Gilman. “The package we negotiated was much better than what we’ve done in the past.”

'We did a lot more digital advertising this year, which had a big impact. The package we negotiated was much better than what we’ve done in the past.'
—Marie Gilman, Greater Toledo Auto Show
But Gilman in many respects has continued doing some of the things she’s done in past years, building on a momentum that has raised the profile of the Toledo show.

A new addition this year came in the form of two Ride and Drive opportunities, representing Toyota and the Fiat Chrysler brands—Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Fiat.

“The fact that they were right by the door helped with participation and we heard good things regarding how many were involved,” she said.

Gilman is also a fan of bringing a number of smaller features together, the sum of which helps drive enthusiasm and attendance.

Among those features this year were two mascots from the AAA Minor League Toledo Mud Hens—Muddie and Madonna.

“We’ve done a ‘Find Muddie’ promotion before but now we have more of a following on social media,” added Gilman. “We hid bubble heads, one inside the show and one outside but we moved them around. People who found them were asked to take a selfie and that was their entry to win tickets to a Mud Hens game.”

Show goers also had an opportunity to win a two-year lease on a Chevy Cruze, courtesy of the local Chevrolet dealers.

Virginia Beach: Show grows, expands into adjacent space

It’s little wonder that after a decade of experiencing compounded double-digit growth in the largest convention center in Virginia Beach, the Hampton Roads International Auto Show has reached its “natural limit” as far as attendance is concerned.

Still, this year’s attendance was up slightly over last year, says ATAE Sean Brickell, who heads the Hampton Roads Automobile Dealers Association.

This year’s highlights included Ride and Drive events from Toyota and Chrysler, along with at least five pre-production prototype vehicles and another three concept cars from various manufacturers.

With nearly 50 cents of every dollar in the Virginia Beach economy generated through the military, the auto show takes that seriously.

“We have 25 percent of the world’s navy based here,” said Brickell.

Showing their support for the military includes a Military Appreciation Day, sponsored by Ford. During that event, the first 1,200 visitors with an ID, whether active, dependent or reserve, get in free.

''Previously, we had to tell the automakers that we were out of space. That’s never a good thing.'
—ATAE Sean Brickell
Brickell is already looking forward to next year’s show, particularly after an agreement with the City of Virginia Beach, which owns the convention center as well as a ballroom that at least until recently was inaccessible from the space that the auto show rented.

That will change next year, thanks to an agreement that saw the dealer association pay the cost of connecting the two buildings, which lets the auto show rent out another 40,000 square feet of space.

“Previously, we had to tell the automakers that we were out of space,” noted Brickell. “That’s never a good thing.”

After working with the convention center, Brickell and his staff worked out the details to provide double doors that go right through the middle of the ballroom.

“It’s well worth the investment,” said Brickell of the partnership that made this possible.

Having the show occur in January, when “nobody else is booking space,” also helped seal the deal, said Brickell.

“We get our dates reserved five years out,” he added.

Another plus as far as the timing is concerned is that being a week ahead of the North American International Auto Show, some vehicles that might not otherwise be available make a stop before heading to Detroit.

The dates are also one of the most inexpensive as far as purchasing media, he added.
