The Auto Show

May 3rd, 2013

Current automobile models are seen on public exhibitions known as Auto Shows or Motor Shows. Also often seen in these exhibitions are debuting car models, concept cars and classics that are no longer produced. Occurring at least once or twice a year, automobile manufacturers and local developers use these events mainly for public relation purposes to advertise their products and create increased publicity. Shows that occur on a more frequent basis such as weekly or monthly are more informal and localized. Most are social events that allow car enthusiast to meet others who share their interest.

Auto shows offer enthusiasts the chance to test drive most of the exhibited car models. This has proven to redound to the benefit of manufacturers and dealers in the form of increased sales and bookings during the show. Auto shows not only provide a venue to see and buy cars but also serves as a venue of entertainment featuring musical shows, kiddie shows and competitions to get the interest of the whole family.

Attending a local motor show is easy enough but attending an international show requires more preparation. Travel documentation, funds, accommodations and car rental service are just some of the things to be considered. Looking into the official website of the show promoter provides information that would help visitors better appreciate the show. At present, the most popular auto show in the US is the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Other famous international shows are hosted in Frankfurt, Geneva, Melbourne, Britain, Australia, Philippines, Guangzhou, Moscow, Athens, Dubai, Indonesia, Madrid, Bologna, Turin, Seoul and Paris. The successes of these shows are largely credited to the attendance of foreign media together with local auto and business writers. Of course, the participation of famous car manufacturers with their latest offerings is required to create the excitement and interest for the show.

For a different experience, you can attend the Mud Nationals at MudCreek Off-Road Park in Jacksonville, TX.
