About Us


The Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia (ADAGP) is a regional trade association of new car and truck dealers in the Greater Philadelphia area. Think of us as an “educational clubhouse” for those working in the retail auto industry. We host important meetings, distribute key industry updates, and most recognizably, organize and produce the Philadelphia Auto Show. About 190 area dealerships belong to our association and our allied Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation.



The Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the ADAGP. Both organizations are comprised of the same members, but the ADAGP is responsible for all industry-related activities, while the Foundation spearheads all philanthropic giving.

The mission of the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation is to enhance and enrich the lives of children and youth in the communities where our dealer members work and live. We want the public to know that we are small business owners who believe in the power of giving back and that we are More Than Auto Dealers.



The Philadelphia Auto Show is one of the largest auto shows in the country with 250,000 guests annually, a 750,000-square foot display floor, and a regional economic impact of approximately $50 million. The Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia produces the Auto Show and a portion of ticket proceeds benefit the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. It is THE best place for consumers in the market to connect with the latest the automotive industry has to offer. The event has been connecting consumers and entertaining families since 1902.

Our Foundation does not support individuals, fraternal, veteran, alumni, labor or governmental agencies, religious organizations or political organizations/lobbyist groups.
