Sergio Marchionne to headline as keynote speaker at first automotive show of 2010

Troy, MI - November 25, 2009 - Automotive News has announced their World Congress will be held this year on January 12-14 at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center, a scheduling change and the proximity to the show means that it will be easier for participants to attend both events. The event will include the industry's top executives explaining how they will compete and survive in an industry preparing for new opportunities, economic recovery and growth.

Opening Tuesday afternoon, January 12, which is also the second and final day of media preview for the 2010 NAIAS, the Automotive News World Congress will feature Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer, Chrylser LLC. Other speakers will include top executives from GM, Ford, Honda, and Toyota.

Offering a new, tighter format, the event will provide attendees access to the most influential and powerful automotive industry leaders, content and contacts, and a pass to visit the auto show on Thursday, January 14th before it opens to the public.

Registration also includes access to the presentation of the Polk Loyalty Awards on Tuesday evening and the presentation of the BorgWarner owner and driver trophies, as well as the Automotive News/PricewaterhouseCoopers Shareholder Value Awards on Wednesday evening.

The NAIAS is the only auto show in the United States to earn an annual distinguished sanction of the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles, the Paris-based alliance of automotive trade associations and manufacturers from around the world.
