Every year, car collectors, enthusiasts and admirers flock to auto shows all over the world just to get a glimpse of a finely kept classic or the prototype of a new concept car. While there are countless car, truck and motorcycle shows all over the United States, there are a few that carry a special weight to them; the auto shows at which new concepts are revealed and exciting breakthroughs in technology are on display. These are those car shows–the best yearly auto events in the U.S.
North American International Auto Show – Detroit Auto Show
A longtime home to local auto shows, Detroit has been hosting car events for more than 100 years. In 1989, what had previously been a regional event became an international one and the NAIAS was born. Since then, the NAIAS has grown into one of the world’s largest automobile shows, drawing more than 18 million visitors over the past 25 years. The NAIAS is one of the few auto shows in the United States that is sanctioned by OICA, the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers.
The North American International Auto Show is held each January in Detroit.
Los Angeles Auto Show
Like the NAIAS, the L.A. Auto Show is also sanctioned by OICA and has roots that date back more than a century. The L.A. Auto Show is known for debuting new American and foreign cars, as well as being at the forefront of emerging automotive technologies. In fact, the Connected Car Expo was recently added to the L.A. Auto Show in response to the interest in new technology and how it may change the way we use cars.
The Los Angeles Auto Show is held in late November to early December.
Chicago Auto Show
The Chicago Auto Show is one of the largest in North America and has was first staged in 1901. It has been held more than any other automotive show in the United States and draws more than a million visitors each year. The show has been produced by the Chicago Automobile Trade Association since 1935.
The Chicago Auto Show is held each year in February.
New York International Auto Show
The New York Auto Show tends to stir excitement and speculation about new concept cars and production models. Being held in the media capital, the show is the perfect stage for rolling out new ideas and manufacturers take full advantage of it. Definitely an event not to be missed if you’re a car lover.
The New York International Auto Show is held in Manhattan in late March or early April.
Philadelphia International Auto Show
Like most of the other auto shows mentioned in this article, the Philadelphia Auto Show got its start in the early 1900s. The Philadelphia Auto Show is definitely a family friendly event and tends to have an excellent display of classics. Unlike some other shows, this one brings out local dealers (rather than manufacturers), partly because the event is sponsored by the Automobile Dealer’s Association of Greater Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia International Auto Show is held in February.
