Columbus, OH (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
The Ohio Automobile Dealers Association (OADA) brings new vehicles and the latest interactive technologies to consumers and enthusiasts of all ages in three auto shows to be held in Toledo, Dayton and Columbus in February and March. Each show will feature exhibits of the newest models from local automobile dealers and manufacturers.
“The automotive industry continues to play a vital role in Ohio’s economy. Retail sales of cars across the state produce more than $34 billion, making up almost 25% of the total sales tax collected in Ohio,” said Marie Gilman, Auto Show Manager of the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association, Dublin, Ohio. “In addition, the automotive industry employs more than 50,000 Ohioans. Our annual auto shows provide a unique opportunity for consumers and enthusiasts alike to celebrate the auto industry in Ohio, as they get a glimpse of the new innovations that will be available in 2014. They also provide a forum to highlight the extraordinary contributions that auto dealerships make to our communities.”
All three shows will hold a Media Day to offer journalists a sneak peek of the floor display at the show. At this time product specialists will be available for interviews. Please contact Leslie Fulford at leslie(at)teamfleisher.com for more details.
