As South Floridians continue to make preparations for Hurricane Irma, it was announced today that the opening of the Miami International Auto Show, originally scheduled for Saturday, September 9th at the Miami Beach Convention Center, has been postponed.
“Our priorities are to provide any assistance that helps our community better prepare for this hurricane,” said Richard Baker, president of the South Florida Dealers Association, promoters of the annual Auto Show. “We hope to be able to open the Auto Show sometime next week depending on the movement of the storm, but will continue to work with officials at the City of Miami Beach on just when an opening will be possible.”
The South Florida Automobile Dealers Association, which comprise more than 190 dealerships in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties, presents the Miami International Auto Show, which debuted in 1971.
