Q: Can you sit inside the vehicles?

Q: Will the representatives be aggressively trying to sell me their cars?

A: The Cleveland Auto Show is a non-selling show. This means that no sales are allowed to be made on the floor and no one will pressure you into buying anything. It is a show for you, the consumer, to inspect all angles of the vehicles and have a pressure-free environment in which to do it. The product specialists at each manufacturer booth will be able to answer any questions you may have about the vehicles.
