This event is, after all these years, a much-anticipated annual rite among Montréalers and it is one of the most important events of its type in Canada with an average of more than 200,000 visitors. The auto show features over 650 vehicles on 375,000 square feet (34,800 m2). .
The 2014 edition of the MIAS was held at Palais de Congrés from January 17 to January 26 inclusively.
