New York International Auto Show

New York International Auto Show
The New York International Auto Show is one of the longest-running auto shows in the United States. It is held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, New York City every spring, opening on or just before Easter weekend and running through the first Sunday after Easter.

Founded in 1999, the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) is America’s oldest automotive exhibition. The first automobile show in the United States opened on November 3, 1990 at Madison Square Garden. It featured 69 exhibitors and approximately 160 vehicles, attracting about 48,000 visitors over a week. The event has changed several venues since its inception including the Grand Central Palace and the New York Coliseum. It moved to its current venue, the Javits Center, in 1987.

Today’s NYIAS is the showcase of the finest American and foreign vehicles. Each edition features production car and concept car introductions, including world and North American debuts. Some auto companies debut their new production and concept cars for the press before the official opening of the show during the so-called NYIAS Press Days.

The NYIAS features nearly 1,000 cars and trucks from world’s leading car manufacturers including Acura, Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyndai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Lotus, Maserati, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini Cooper, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Ram, Rolls Royce, Scion, Smart, Spyker, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo. Ushering the latest trends in the automotive industry, the show offers a breathtaking collection of extraordinary innovation and cutting-edge design to suit any taste.

Like most auto shows, the New York International Auto Show is open to the general public but also features a series of invitation-only events for the press and dealers. Its rich and diverse program is full of exciting events and activities for attendees of all ages. The show’s more than four floors of car displays won’t let you get bored easily.
