Went to hear the Minister at a workshop ate the Cobo Center. This is a great place to visit and to have conventions. They have the space that you need always. The Cobo is very convenient due to the Peoples -Mover train. Great connection!!

As far as conference centers go, COBO is very nice, but has two big cons. The look is very modern, it's easy to get to, the staff were professional, and the place was impeccably clean. Where is fell short was the catering and the A/V. The food served at our event was very bland (2 breakfasts, and 2 lunches we... More

The "New" Cobo far bypasses the "old" Cobo. Thank you Detroit for updating and making it a true gem in the city! Gorgeous views of Canada and the Detroit River

2017 Auto was at Cobo Center. This place was packed with concept cars and 2017 models of cars. It is a fun time looking what is coming out for this year. Cobo center is a great place for this venue. The parking lots were full so we had to park a couple of blocks away.

Thank you for your recent review of the North American International Auto Show and Cobo Center. Glad to hear that you enjoyed this years show. You are absolutely right, parking during peak show times can be a challenge especially when there are other events taking place downtown like the Winterfest or a Red Wings game. While the Red Wings move... More

We go every no to the auto show in January downtown Detroit at the COBO center. Nicely located and easy to access. The DPM(people mover) is easy to use and the building itself is awesome and fun to walk around.

We were there for the first day open to the public of the Detroit Auto Show. It's a huge space as you would expect and we had to ask where to pick up pre-purchased tickets but there were ample door agents to check you in.
