Over 50 unveilings are scheduled in total, including 30 exclusive world premieres. Many futuristic concept cars will be introduced, along with plenty of more accessible models that will hit the market just a few months after the event. This gathering of soon-to-be available cars makes the show a prime spot for comparison shopping. In addition to automobiles, the event features award ceremonies like the highly coveted Green Car of the Year award.
