2004 Detroit Auto Show
Interesting Facts
  • Fourteen semi-trailers are used to carry more than 75,000 yards of carpet for exhibits and aisles at the auto show. It all the carpet was made 2 feet in width, it would be 66 miles long. If an average house has 125 yards, all the carpet at the auto show would be enough for 600 homes.
  • Exhibits, lighting and sound equipment take enough electricity to power a subdivision with 360 homes for 6 months.
  • During the preparations, over 1,500 carpenters, stagehands, electricians, Teamsters and ironworkers work full time for 12-14 hour shifts some double that until the job is complete.
  • The total value of the exhibits is over $200 million not counting the 700 automobiles that will be on display. This year, there are more than 20 two-level exhibits at the auto show.
  • Two-level exhibits add 106,000 more sq. feet to Cobo Center. The main floor has 750,000 sq. feet which adds up to 860,000 sq. feet of space for the auto show.
  • Since the Charity Preview started back in 1976, over $32 million has been riased for children's charities in Detroit. Last year, $6.125 million was raised during the Charity Preview.
  • The auto show was held in other locations besides Cobo including the Michigan StateFairgrounds and the Detroit Artillery Armory. It finally moved to its current home, Cobo Center in 1965.
