INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (November 29, 2018) – 20 automobile manufacturers from around the world will display their 2019 model automobiles, SUVs, light-duty trucks and luxury vans at the 105th Indianapolis Auto Show. America’s second-longest-running auto show returns to the Indiana Convention Center Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018 through Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019.

In addition to all the new model vehicles, auto manufacturers will feature their specialty vehicles and more. Consumers will be able to speak with automotive product specialists surrounded by spectacular exhibits. Tens of thousands of consumers are expected to attend this annual event.

State Farm Insurance, in partnership with Hasbro, would like to welcome Indianapolis Auto Show attendees to The Game of Life, a fully-interactive auto show experience built for those who love cars just as much as we do. As State Farm is “here to help life go right,” this year’s space allows consumers to become an oversized game piece and experience The Game of Life through the lens of car-buying decisions, from their first car to their retirement RV.

The activation includes an oversized game spinner, tablet interactives, photo opportunities and a digital scoreboard, encouraging participants to try their luck at the high score. As a “thank you” for participation, auto show attendees can walk away from the experience with their own branded tote bag. Talk to a State Farm agent about your life goals. While you’re at it, get an auto quote.

We are happy to have the Indiana Blood Center at the show again this year. The Indiana Blood Center will have one blood mobile as well as a small four-bed blood drive setup inside the Auto Show space at the Convention Center. Founded in 1952, Indiana Blood Center is a non-profit organization and vital community resource dedicated to providing a continuous, safe and adequate supply of blood components and biological services first to people of our own communities, then wherever needed. This is done through the dedication of 350 associates and the commitment of more than 90,000 Hoosiers blood donors. To join Indiana Blood Center’s life-giving cause or for more information, visit http://www.indianablood.org.

Visitors to the Ivy Tech Community College booth can interact with faculty and hands-on equipment from the automotive technology program. They can also take a virtual tour, grab giveaways, and enroll on the spot to be entered to win a scholarship at the college.

We are also proud to announce The Indianapolis Star as a “Gold Sponsor.”

“This year’s 105th show has so much to offer. The manufacturers are optimistic and the consumer gets to see why they are so excited,” said Steve Baker, president of The Indianapolis Automobile Trade Association. “We’ve utilized every inch of the space to make the most of your visit. Come out and spend some time with family and friends during the holidays at the 2019 Indy Auto Show. We know you won’t be disappointed!”

Tens of thousands of consumers are expected to attend the 100th Indianapolis Auto Show. America’s second-longest running auto show returns to the Indiana Convention Center Thursday, December 26, 2013 through Wednesday, January 1, 2014. 39 automobile manufacturers from around the world will display their 2014 model automobiles, SUVs, light duty trucks and luxury vans in more than 400,000 square feet of exhibit space.

In addition to all the new model vehicles, auto manufacturers will feature their specialty vehicles and more. Consumers will be able to speak with automotive product specialists surrounded by over 400 vehicles displayed in spectacular exhibits.

Jeep® is bringing Camp Jeep®, a unique, interactive, off-road experience, to consumers attending the 2014 Indianapolis Auto Show, December 26, 2013 thru January 1, 2014, at the Indianapolis Convention Center.

Camp Jeep is the ultimate indoor off-road driving test. The 25,000-square foot exhibit will give auto show attendees a chance to experience the extreme off-road capabilities of Jeep vehicles without leaving the show floor.

“We have created this unique auto show opportunity to provide our customers with a memorable experience that no other manufacturer can offer,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The iconic Jeep brand offers an adventurous lifestyle and vehicles that deliver legendary 4×4 capability. Attendees will enjoy the Jeep experience first-hand on the show floor this weekend.”

The course will be comprised of several obstacles that simulate some of the rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure before customers get behind the wheel. This provides consumers a first-hand look at the capability standards of Jeep vehicles for Ground Clearance, Traction, Stability, Articulation and Suspension.

The Jeep Test Track is an interactive adventure zone where professional 4×4 drivers allow riders to experience a Jeep’s on and off-road capabilities. Product specialists will chauffeur participants in a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Wrangler Rubicon and Grand Cherokee to allow consumers to experience the legendary capabilities of a Jeep. Camp Jeep features a thrilling, “can’t miss” hill climb where passengers experience the Jeep’s traction capabilities while climbing the 14-foot high, 35 degree Jeep Mountain, the icon of the ride. Riders are over 18 feet off the ground when they sit on top of Jeep Mountain. The track includes a 12 x 25-foot section of terrain simulating fallen logs measuring 18 inches in diameter and a 30-degree wedge to demonstrate the vehicle’s body articulation where attendees will experience the adrenaline rush of looking nearly straight up or straight down as they navigate the obstacle. Each ride is about 5 minutes long. Camp Jeep will be open during all hours of the Indianapolis Auto Show and any additional media requests beginning December 26.

It’s official. The 2014 Toyota Highlander will be at this year’s Indianapolis Auto Show! But don’t just see it for yourself. Own it for yourself. Come to the show to find out how to win. During Toyota’s Ready to Win Sweepstakes, you could win a new 2014 Highlander courtesy of your Central Indiana Toyota Dealers.

State Farm Insurance would like to welcome Indianapolis Auto Show attendees to the State Farm Garage, a fully interactive auto show experience built for those who love cars just as much as we do. The State Farm Garage features two full body driving experiences, free photo booth, an oversized smartphone and a chance to win tablets, gift cards or a Bluetooth stereo!

We are also proud to announce Huntington Bank as our “Platinum” sponsor once again and The Indianapolis Star as a “Gold Sponsor.”

“This year’s 100th show has so much to offer. The manufacturers are optimistic and the consumer gets to see why they are so excited.” said Bruce Heath, President of The Indianapolis Automobile Trade Association. “We’ve utilized every inch of the space to make the most of your visit.
