South Florida Auto Show

The South Florida International Auto Show is held every year in Miami Beach, Florida. The date varies, but is usually between the last week in October and first week in December. While often underlooked, it is one of the most prominent auto shows in the United States. The 10-day event averages over 650,000 visitors a year, making it the fifth busiest auto show in the United States. The 2006 show was held October 6-15. The 2007 show was held November 9 - 18. The show is important less for its introductions and more for the fact that it is the first of the six major North American Auto Shows, so it is the first time that all new-year models are shown under one roof. It is especially popular debut show for high-end European manufacturers.
