Chinese automaker GAC to return to NAIAS

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) has confirmed the GAC Group will be on the main show floor at the 2017 auto show.

As the GAC Group expands, it will return to Detroit following the unveiling its GS4 SUV in 2015 to thousands of international journalists.

Vice Chairman President of the the sixth-largest automaker in China, Zeng Qinghong, said: “GAC Motor’s market share in China increased following the world debut of the GS4 two years ago and was a direct result of the international coverage we received. As we look to establish ourselves as a global brand we are optimistic we can gain more momentum following the announcements we will make this coming January in Detroit.”

“GAC Group’s return to NAIAS is very exciting for our show as it underscores the significant coverage and impact automakers receive in markets across the globe when unveiling products at our show,” said Sam Slaughter, 2017 NAIAS Chairman.

In addition to interacting with media, the GAC Group is keen to connect with other leading automakers as well as suppliers that attend NAIAS. This past January, NAIAS set an attendance record for Industry Preview as nearly 40,000 executives, engineers, designers and analysts walked the show floor.
