Canadian International Autoshow: A record-breaking year
The 2017 Canadian International AutoShow was held in Toronto from February 17 to 26. Once again, car enthusi- asts were delighted by the diverse array of vehicles, including Alfa Romeo, Rolls Royce, Ferrari, BMW and Mercedes, exhibited across over 60,000 square metres at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The event was both the biggest auto show and trade show ever held in Canada.
Of course, manufacturers took the opportunity to unveil their new models to the Canadian audience. Attendees also got the chance to enjoy an exhibit of vintage cars from the ’70s, presented by Legendary Motorcar.
Another exhibit highlighted the history of the Canadian Grand Prix, and showcased its most eminent drivers to celebrate the competition’s 50th anniversary in June.
According to organizers, this year’s show once again drew in thousands of guests, breaking its previous admission record with a crowd of 339,590 visitors. “We have worked hard to create a show that not only showcases the latest vehicles and trends in the industry, but also celebrates what we call a Total Automotive Experience,” says Jason Campbell, Canadian International AutoShow General Manager.
