Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia

Who we are

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

History & Leadership

Established in 1904, the ADAGP is one of the oldest associations of its kind in the nation. It is led by a Board of Directors compromised of some of the most well-respected and successful dealers in the area.


ADAGP’s mission is to support, promote and protect the common interests of the franchised new car and truck dealers of Greater Philadelphia by providing services and programs, disseminating information, enhancing dealership image and pooling collective influence for the benefit of our members.


Dealer membership to the ADAGP is available to any franchised new car and truck dealer located in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, or Philadelphia county. Associate membership is open to companies that provide or wish to provide products and services to our dealer members.

The ADAGP is pleased to offer legal, lobbying and titling services to its dealer members, as well as opportunities to participate in our CFO/Controllers 20-Group Meetings and Fixed Ops Roundtable Meetings. Additional benefits of membership for both our dealer members and associate members include access to our exclusive publications and invitations to our networking events such as our annual golf outing, which benefits the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation, as well as our annual dinner meeting, which takes place every fall.
