Miami International Auto Show Opens September 9th
The 47th annual Miami International Auto Show will open its 9-day run at the Miami Beach Convention Center on Saturday, September 9th and close its doors on Sunday, September 17th.
“This is the second consecutive year that our show will be held in September again to accommodate the construction schedule for the Convention Center’s renovation,” said Richard Baker, auto show manager. “The auto manufacturers, as well as our show's attendees, have been accustomed to the show running in early November. These earlier dates along with the reduced square footage within the building has made presenting a world-class auto show a challenge. Although, our auto show will remain loyal to those who have supported it during these many years.”
Due to the renovations of the Miami Beach Convention Center, the show entrance this year is on Washington Avenue and 18th Street.
Considered among America’s top five Auto Shows and the first major of the season, the Miami show is expected to showcase several hundred new cars, crossovers and SUV’s from the major manufacturers.
The Miami International Auto Show features major debuts of the Genesis 2018 G80 and 2018 GV80 Fuel Cell Concept SUV, the 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT, Toyota’s production 2018 Camry hybrid and the first-ever auto show appearance for the Cadillac 018 XTS sedan.
A number of auto manufacturers including Nissan, Ford, Toyota, Genesis, Cadillac, Acura, Infiniti, Lexus, Hyundai and Fiat are planning announcements in Miami during the auto show’s Media Day the morning of September 9th. Hundreds of national and international journalists are expected to attend the Media Day activities which will be held just prior to the public opening.
Major announcements were made in Miami in 2017 by a host of auto lines and included Global debuts of the 2017 Nissan Rogue, 2017 Nissan Sentra and the 2017 Ford F-150 STX.
The Antique Automobile Club of America’s South Florida Region will present an all-star line-up of classics that include a 1954 Buick Roadmaster, 1968 Shelby Cobra GT350, 1971 Volvo P1800E, 1981 DeLorean DMC12 and 1993 Chevrolet Corvette.
French-American Artist and South Florida resident Duaív will show his latest artistic interpretation by displaying a newly painted McLaren 675LT Spider.
