DETROIT, December 10, 2015 – The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) announced today that Robb Report, the leading global luxury lifestyle brand, will be an official media partner for the 2016 NAIAS.

“Robb Report delivers an unparalleled global focus on luxury and design,” said Paul Sabatini, 2016 NAIAS Chairman. “In addition to their extensive NAIAS coverage and planned engagements, Robb Report will also spotlight the city of Detroit’s cultural dynamism through ongoing content creation surrounding the host city’s booming manufacturing, technology, art, music, and culinary scene.”
