The 2019 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) makes its return to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center this Friday. From coupes to sedans, SUVs to trucks, new vehicles to future concept cars, the New York International Auto Show is a showcase for nearly 1,000 vehicles spread across four floors of the convention center and offers a look at some of the latest technologies and innovations from automakers around the world.
From walking the show floor and exhibit halls to getting into vehicles for a hands-on, look & feel experience to participating in a ride-along or test drive (ex: Camp Jeep Ride & Drive), the New York International Auto Show is a fun and enjoyable event for auto enthusiasts, individuals and families alike and a great way to spend a few hours of your day.
NYIAS starts on Friday, April 19th and runs through Sunday, April 28th with an opening ceremony taking place on Saturday, April 20th from 8:30am to 10:30am. The event is open to the public, but you do need to purchase tickets for the event available on the New York International Auto Show website.
For me, it’s always fun heading to the auto show to check out some of the latest vehicles coming to market, the emerging technologies and innovations in the industry and seeing some of the concept cars in development. I also like the hands-on experience. Having the opportunity to get into vehicles from a variety of automakers and get an up-close look & feel. It’s a great opportunity to check out different vehicles (cars, SUVs, trucks) which you might not ordinarily do unless you are in the market to buy or lease a new vehicle. Of course, what’s an auto show without a sense of nostalgia seeing some of the vintage classics on display.
I’m looking forward to checking out the new vehicles at this year’s NYIAS.
