About the New York International Auto Show
120 years ago, a group of enthusiasts in Manhattan joined together to showcase automobiles to a growing group of consumers intrigued by the prospect of owning a ‘horseless carriage’ and so began a journey to what is now the New York International Auto Show and the largest area for new vehicles sales in the nation. Today, the Show is where car-buying decisions are made. In 2019, 72% of attendees said they were in the market to buy or lease a vehicle within the next 12 months, and 36% added a brand to their consideration list as a result of their visit to the Show.
