The Columbus International Auto Show is excited to have Huntington Bank as its presenting sponsor once again. The 2014 Auto Show is going to be bigger and better than ever, and this could not be possible without the continued commitment from our wonderful sponsors. This year marks the 7th consecutive year that Huntington has served as presenting sponsor. We are glad to have them back!
2014 is predicted to be an exceptional year for the automotive industry and dealerships will likely see a rise in sales with manufacturers turning out new technologies at increasingly affordable prices. According to Huntington’s second annual Midwest Economic Index, 24 percent of respondents in the state of Ohio, and one in five across the Midwest, indicate they plan to purchase or lease a vehicle this year.
