Nissan and Infiniti have announced that they will be in attendance at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nissan took a two-year leave of absence from NAIAS to expand its presence in other large auto shows like L.A., Chicago, and New York. For 2012, the Japanese automaker and its luxury brand will return to the Detroit auto show, as well as appear on stage for both press-conference days, in front of 5,000 journalists from all over the world.
The larger automakers like Ford, GM, and Chrysler typically make presentations at both conference days. Otherwise, journalists are scrambling to collect the entire week's material in one single 16-hour conference, which can be stressful and exhausting.
"We're thankful that NAIAS is, once again, an important part of Nissan's international auto show strategy," said Bill Perkins, NAIAS chairman.
