VIP Gala at the 2024 Vancouver Auto Show

The highly-anticipated Vancouver Auto Show kicked off with a wonderful opening night gala, where industry stakeholders, media representatives, government officials, and friends of the NCDA came together to celebrate excellence in the automotive sector. The glitz and glamour of the gala was a splendid occasion to bring everyone together and spend time with familiar faces, but it wasn’t just for show. The gala also served as a charity event benefiting the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC and the crucial work of Special Olympics BC.

2019 Vancouver Auto Show

The 2019 Auto Show was the last auto show the NCDA hosted in Vancouver since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s a sampling from the past show and what to expect for when the show makes its planned return.

Automotive enthusiasts from across the province eagerly await the return of Western Canada’s best attended consumer show—the Vancouver International Auto Show at the beautiful Vancouver Convention Centre. However, our top priority continues to be the safety of the public, our dealer members, and their staff as we navigate through the pandemic. We look forward to welcoming guests back when it is possible to do so.
