We’re Star Wars-ing It Up at the Chicago Auto Show with Nissan and Camping Under the Death Star

future motoring

Amongst all the hubbub and excitement around the 2017 Chicago Auto Show at McCormick Place, we’ll be doing something a bit fun and quite a bit nerdy with our friends from Nissan. We’ll be camping inside the convention center sleeping under the giant inflatable Death Star!

Seriously. While we’re not entirely sure why we thought this would be a good idea, we’ll be joining a couple of Nissan PR folks plus Nicole Wakelin of BestRide (and other places, plus podcast guest) to spend a night camping in the Star Wars universe.

What happens after everyone leaves for the night? Do the cars come alive like in Night at the Museum? Will it be something out of the Blair Witch Project? You’ll have to wait and see.

We’ll be live-streaming, Tweeting, and more from our night on Alderaan (that’s what we might be calling it). If you have any suggestions for things to do or questions you want answered, feel free to ask in the comments below, or hit us up on Twitter and Facebook. Also, be sure to follow #NissanCAS and #StarWarsCASSleepover for more!

Luckily one of Nissan contacts is trained in survival skills in case us two journalists end up in trouble. Stay tuned for the shenanigans that’ll ensue!
