Four years is a long time to sit and wait.

But that’s what Vancouver-area car shoppers have had to do from the one-two punch of the pandemic, followed by a slow return to full participation in auto shows by the manufacturers.

Now, the Vancouver International Auto Show is back in business. The 2024 event is organized by the New Car Dealers Association of BC (NCDA) and runs from March 20-24 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in British Columbia.

“We are thrilled to be back,” said Blair Qualey, NCDA President and CEO. “Having a chance to get the show back after a four-year hiatus is terrific. The presale of tickets is off the charts. We are hoping the example set by Montreal and Toronto for such strong attendance will happen here.”

Show organizers say the show is one of western Canada’s best-attended consumer events. And this year’s event features more than 200 vehicles from 30 different manufacturers displaying their models in 220,000 plus square feet of exhibit space.

Apart from the mainstream car makers, this year’s event featured luxury supercars and exotics, classics, over-landers and everything in between, according to the event organizers.
