The LA Auto Show springs into action every November, turning the 870,000 square-foot Los Angeles Convention Centre into the primary focus of the global automotive industry.
Although it's been running in one form or another since 1907, the LA Motor Show hasn't always been ranked amongst the top inter nation motor shows on the calendar. It has grown in popularity and status over recent years, however, managing to secure a number of major new car unveils in the face of stiff competition from rival events like those in Detroit, Paris, Geneva and Tokyo.
The LA show organisers claim to host 12,000 industry executives and members of the media over the press and trade days with a further 900,000 people visiting the show once it has opened to the public. In recent years major new cars like the Jaguar F-Type Coupe, Porsche Macan and the MINI have made their public debut in LA.
