Saab press activities during the NAIAS

Saab won’t have a stand at the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) this year, but they’ll still have an opportunity for the press to meet up with the SCNA executive team, as well as an announcement to make.

My guess is if they come back to the show at all, it’ll be with the North American debut of the 2012 9-3…

I’m sure there will still be articles and even photos generated from their light display at their pop up show exhibit. Creating their own “SNÖ HUS” costs a ton less than paying the NAIAS for space, gets their message out just as much, and probably is a much… Read more »
