A car show is a platform for automobile manufacturers to demonstrate their latest cars to consumers. Often it is also the place for them to show their antique cars and at the same time to show concept cars or models of cars under design that will grow to become concept cars of the future.

Car shows began simply as car markets where manufacturers gathered to sell their vehicles to prospective buyers. These unorganized sales of yesterday became the car shows of today and have resulted in a variety of car shows of various types held year-round.

The main types of car shows are the international and national car shows, and the specialty car shows, e.g., the vintage car shows or the British car shows, held in different parts of the country. The purpose of each of these car shows is different.

International and national car shows are big events where every car manufacturer attempts to give a power-packed performance to dazzle the audience. It is not just the cars that are on display but also prestige of carmakers as they try their best to impress the public by showcasing their cars of the past, the present, and the future. The idea is to create an image in the minds of the people so that brand recall is maintained.

There is a lot of buzz generated in both national and international car shows like the Los Angeles Auto show, the New York International Auto Show, the North American International Auto Show, the Seattle International Auto Show, the South Florida Auto Show, the Washington Auto Show, and others. International media are usually present to report the most dazzling news from the world of cars. A lot of negotiations happen, and deals are finalized at these car shows. In this way, the original purpose of car shows, which is to buy and sell cars, remains intact.

Other car shows, like the vintage car shows or the British car shows, are held by car enthusiasts across the United States to recreate the glory of vintage cars. These shows have events like rallies where the owners proudly compete for the best prize. Such car shows have become the pride of the places where they are held and have become one prime tourist pullers wherever they are held.
