Kansas gears up for auto event

February 23, 2014 by  

The Greater Kansas City International Auto Show is taking place over five days in just a couple of weeks’ time, and will be presented by Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Kansas City.

The event will start off with a benefit concert on the first night, featuring Jay Leno, and will be a fundraiser for Children’s Mercy Hospital. The show will feature more than 500 of the latest models of cars, SUVs, minivans, trucks, and other vehicles. All of the top American and foreign car manufacturers will be showing off their newest autos.

In advance of the show, those who own classic cars can enter a contest on the event’s Facebook page for a $1,000 gift certificate. The winner will be chosen by people at the auto show.

Organizers of shows such as these often look to area printing companies to help attract visitors from all over the area, including Overland Park. This may involve investing in poster or flyer printing services.

The Greater Kansas City International Auto Show will be held at Bartle Hall from March 5 – 9. Admission is $11 for adults, $6 for children aged 8 to 12, and free for children aged 7 an under, as well as all military, police and fire personnel.

The Jay Leno concert will take place on March 5 beginning at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $75 each. To find out more about the auto show, visit the official website or the show’s Facebook page.
