The Montreal International Auto Show got the truncated 2023 Canadian show circuit off to a “convincing” start, attracting a 10-day total of 148,516 visitors.
The event, which took place Jan. 20, 2023 through Jan. 29, 2023, was smaller, taking up only one of the usual three floors of the Palais des congress, and numbers were down from the 2020 attendance of 183,149, according to the show’s website. But MIAS Executive Director Luis Pereira said the show achieved its goals.
“Despite three snow days and fewer workers downtown, people came out,” he said.
“We hope the convincing number of visitors will influence the manufacturers present to renew their participation next year and rally those who were absent. From our side, we can say that it is mission accomplished.”
