The New York Auto Show is considered the oldest and first-ever automotive exhibition in North America. It attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors, as well as media and foreign guests. The show has just released their 2013 poster art work depicting the iconic Statue of Liberty as a surreal hood ornament on a car while a shower of ticker-tape falls down from above.
The New York City show will be held, as usual, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. The public dates are March 29 – April 7, 2013. The media-press days are March 27-28th. The dealer preview will be held Thursday evening, March 28th. The media-press days attendance is by pre-approved credentials only. The dealer preview and reception is by invitation only.
This year's poster artwork serves a lot of purposes, most of which is to promote and advertise the New York City auto show. The poster artwork traditionally sets the tone for the show. This year, the graphic is very attention-grabbing due to the central focus being Lady Liberty. She is supposedly featured in a “triumphant drive around the city as ticker-tape rains down.” This is according to the Show Chairman John LaSorsa.
LaSorsa went on to say, “We love the idea of incorporating other iconic New York city elements into the poster design. The 113-year old New York Auto Show is an historic part of the fabric of the City. The poster art is a fun and imaginative way of celebrating our love of the car and this great City.”
The New York Auto Show, as do most other major car shows, combines new ideas, automotive technology, concept cars, and hundreds of current 2013 and 2013 vehicles. The show is owned and operated by the Great New York automobile Dealers Association. The official opening will be a ribbon cutting and ceremonies on Saturday, March 30th at 8:30 am with the doors opening at 10;00 am.
