The Montreal International Auto Show (Le Salon International de l'Auto de Montréal in French) is an annual auto show held in for 10 days in mid-to-late January in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It usually takes place at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

The Montréal International Auto Show (MIAS) is produced by the Montréal Automobile Dealers Corporation. When it was first launched in 1969, the show’s aim was to beef up car sales during a time of the year when business was known to be relatively slow for car dealerships. This event is, after all these years, a much-anticipated annual rite among Montréalers and it is one of the most important events of its type in Canada with an average of more than 200,000 visitors. The auto show features over 650 vehicles on 375,000 square feet (34,800 m2). [1].

Prior to 1998, it was held at the Olympic Stadium. In 1999, it was moved to Place Bonaventure due to roof damage inside the Olympic Stadium during the 1998 Ice Storm. In 2001, it was moved to its current Palais des congrès de Montréal.
