The Los Angeles Auto Show is held in Downtown LA’s Convention Center around December every year. The show began its history in 1907 at Morley’s Skating Rink. Three years later, the event was covered under a canvas in Fiesta Park. The auto show gained popularity and its venue grew in size to hold bigger crowds in 1920s.
With growing demand by the masses, the show was successful in the 30s as well, however, it was paused during World War II and did not take place from 1940 until 1951. In 1952, the show restarted with 152 vehicles which included models from international manufacturers.
In mid 2000s, the premiere date for the show changed from January to late November and early December to celebrate its 100-year anniversary in a two-part setting; one for auto premier and the other for the show’s centenary. The dates are still in place to this date.
The LA Auto Show provisions an outlet to writers, producers, designers, and representatives to showcase their work within the auto industry. The record was broken with 65 new model debuts in 2014 and for the next two years after, the first three days of the show was dedicated to Connected Car Expo: a networking opportunity for automotive and tech professionals. Connected Car Expo evolved into the show’s Press and Trade days to create AutoMobility LA in 2016. Also, there is Hispanic Motor Press Awards, which is given to the best cars selected by a national jury including Hispanic writers, journalists, bloggers and influencers. And many more events for the media as well as consumers to find out about latest automobile advancements and technologies.
