Major automakers will be in attendance like Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, Kia and European groups like Mercedes-Benz and Maserati. Local Kansas City dealerships will have representatives on hand to answer questions and show consumers specifics.

Along with the new and shiny vehicles on the floor, there is a section of vintage and classic vehicles to take people back in time.
