The event was cancelled in 2021 and 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic
The Auto Show is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023
The Metro Toronto Convention Center will host the event between February 17th and 26th
The Canadian International Auto Show will go ahead in 2023 after having been cancelled for the last two years due to the Pandemic and the associated health restrictions.
This event, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year, is the largest Auto Show to take place in Canada, with around 330,000 visitors expected during the next edition.
Taking place between February 17th and 26th at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, the Auto Show will cover a 650,000-square-foot area of which a large portion will be reserved to display the electrification of the automotive industry, with experts present to answer the public’s questions.
Other exhibition areas will showcase classic cars and modified vehicles, while the Automotive Journalist’s Association of Canada will be back to unveil its Canadian car and SUV of the year awards.
The event’s organizers are confident the 2023 edition of the Canadian International Auto Show will be a success since the supply chain crisis means potential customers haven’t had the opportunity to see many new models by visiting their local dealerships, as was the case in the last few years.
According to the same people, this edition of the show will be an immersive experience for visitors by going further than what is usually expected from these types of events.
This desire to be different from before is based on the decreasing popularity of auto shows around the world which has been observed over the last few years.
This is due to the increasing number of people who prefer to look at new vehicles online instead of visiting their local auto show. As a result, a number of automakers have decided to stop participating in smaller events in order to save costs.
Tickets for the 2023 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto will go on sale on November 15th.
