In 1900, the New York International Automobile Show became North America’s first automotive exhibition. For over one hundred years, through depression, war, boom-time, oil crisis, recession and growth, it has continued its pioneering tradition of bringing new and innovative ideas to a national and world stage.
In addition to its place as one of the world’s greatest public shows, NYIAS has expanded its range of world-class trade and industry events. No other event brings the business, consumer and lifestyle press, Wall Street’s financial community, the marketing and advertisers of Madison Avenue, and the nation’s largest and most diverse metropolitan population together in such a unique way.
