The good folks at the L.A. Auto Show hooked me up with a Family 4 pack of tickets…that’s admission for 4 to this years show that will run November 18-27 at the Convention Center. You’ll need to read the whole post in order to get to the details on what to do to win.
I’m really jazzed that the L.A. Auto Show has invited me back for Press Days this year which is this Wednesday and Thursday. There is so much going on with some 50 premieres set for those days. Add in the Green Car of the Year award and the press days driving of the green cars there is much to do and tell about.
Among the things I’ve got going on includes an interview with the GM head of Electric Vehicles set for Weds AM. With Electric Vehicles, “EV” in trade talk starting to show up here on the L.A. roads I have more than a few questions to ask him on the topic. First and foremost is with L.A. considered one of the most EV ready cities in the country, what all does GM have in store to make them appealing to us and actually get us in those machines.
There will be a Sneak Preview night, it is pricey but the cost of admission goes to support Homeless Health Care Los Angeles and One Voice. This is a great way to be wined and dined (well hors d’ouvres actually) while enjoying the Auto Show without the usual crowds. I”m sorely tempted to go as it is helping a couple of good causes which makes it worth the cost of admission.
Bringing the family to the auto show is actually a pretty good idea. Once the little ones tire of looking at the shiny new cars and concepts they can be dropped off at the Kids Zone. The Kids Zone is a regular institution at the L.A. Auto Show at this point. It is a safe place, ID needed to check them in and out. I dropped my kids off there for just that reason when they were under 12. Its a safe place with arts and crafts, bouncey houses and such to keep them occupied while you enjoy the rest of the show.
Now for the contest. I already mentioned that I get to interview a GM exec about EVs. What questions would you like answered? The best question…on topic I get will win the tickets. Contest closes Tuesday at 6pm at which time I’ll announce the winner and contact them for your mailing address to send out the tickets. For this reason make sure you comment with an email addy I can access.
