The Best Brands in the World!
Our surveys continually point to our guests’ favorite part of the Show – they love cars! The Convention Centre offers an unsurpassed event experience and the factory displays feature a host concept cars and special models as well as brand-exclusive contests and hands-on activities.

Tourism Vancouver partners
A first for the Auto Show is our TVan’ partners. Watch for the updates on the Show’s front-page link for special events that add to your day at the Show. The Convention Centre is nestled at the foot of one of the great waterfront cities. It’s a chance to enjoy both the Auto Show and the surrounding attractions

Hagerty Classic Alley
We have a small but exquisite stable of collector vehicles that remind us of the upcoming collector car season. Our collector expert and curator of the Show is Nigel Mathews. Not only can he help unravel the questions around collector insurance, but he can also answer those rare model questions.

The Exotics – (SuperCars evolves)
One of the most popular areas of Show, The Exotics represents the especially rare brands that offer the unique history of design, limited production and exceptional performance. Fans of these wheels need only hear the brands to start their pulse racing! This year, look for models from Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, and new this year – McLaren.

A first for the show and located right on the Canada Place roadway in front of the VCC, this is a chance for guests to go for a drive in some of the top rated “green” drives from Ford, Nissan, Toyota, Lexus, and more. Check back for the final model layout. You’ll be able to book your test drive on site on a first-come basis.
