Kevin Mazzucola is Executive Director of Auto Dealers Association of the Greater Philadelphia Area. He says, “It’s a blue collar show in the sense that people really use this show to find their next vehicle. About 40 percent of people who come to the show buy a car in the next 12 months.”

And that, he says, adds up to about $2.5 billion in sales influenced by the Auto Show.
