2015 Shell ECO-Marathon Americas - Niel's Story | THE COMEBACK CITY

The auto industry will be reshaped in a city synonymous with reinvention: Detroit.

–Niel Golightly
VP, External Relations, Shell Oil Company

Detroit was ideal when Shell was looking for a new destination to host 2015 Shell Eco-marathon Americas. The event brings approximately 1,500 gifted high school and college students to The D in a challenge that inspires innovation; and the newly-renovated Cobo Center is the perfect stage to show it off. Thanks to Detroit’s ongoing revitalization, Cobo is the centerpiece of a vibrant, walkable downtown that includes amazing nightlife and thriving culture waiting around every corner. Discover Detroit and all it has to offer: plan your event in America’s great comeback city.
