East Norriton, Pa., Jan. 29, 2018 – The Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia (ADAGP), owner and producer of the Philadelphia Auto Show, is proud to announce a new Opening Weekend attendance record.

“When you combine the love that Philadelphia has for its Auto Show as well as its Eagles, we were poised for a great opening,” said Kevin Mazzucola, executive director of the ADAGP. “There is an amazing sense of unity in our city right now. People want to be out and about and feel the buzz. And, there is no better place to do that than the Auto Show.”
As one of the nation’s largest Auto Shows, the Philadelphia Auto Show annually welcomes approximately 250,000 attendees and has a proven track record of influence on consumers in the region.
