Amongst those involved in the show, Pyrotek Special Effects assisted in adding a level of glamour to the reveal. The event was produced by JGK Integrated Solutions. Jim Koufis president of JGK Integrated Solutions collaborated with Lorenzo Cornacchia, vice president of Pyrotek Special Effects, in bringing various designs to a number of Ford's 2008 reveals.

Koufis requested to add a patriotic appeal to the Canadian debut of both; the 2007 Ford F-150 pickup truck and 2009 Ford Flex crossover. "There are very exciting things going on at Ford these days," Koufis explained. "We worked closely with our clients at Ford to make sure that excitement was reflected in the style of our show."

The Canadian concept incorporated the countries colors of red and white to be integrated into the design of the effects. Utilizing a cryogenic effect, Cornacchia worked with Greg Moore from PRG to add a color transition of red and white, creating the ideal look. The CIAS press conference revealed the latest and greatest of Ford's offerings. Twelve cryo jet heads were designed into the reveal of the new Ford Flex and shot upwards approximately 20 feet with red and white color transitions. An additional eighteen 1 X 25 gold gerbs added just enough sparkle to the reveal of the F-150. Two LSG - G300's were also utilized to engulf the F-150 in a blanket of low lying fog.

The Canadian International Auto Show was held in Toronto from February 15 - 24, 2008. With exhibitions at both Rogers Centre and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre the floor plan provided over 850,000 square feet of display space. This was the 35th Annual event and continues to be the largest consumer show of any kind in Canada.
