Peter Ginsberg , Show Producer of the 2016 Ottawa Gatineau International Auto Show is pleased to announce that the Ottawa Gatineau Auto Show will be taking place again March 17-20, 2016 at the Shaw Centre, (formally the Ottawa Convention Centre) in Downtown Ottawa.
This year over 300 vehicles will be on display with over 30 manufacturers participating along with a new feature, the 20,000 square foot Motorcycle Showcase produced by the Ottawa International Motorcycle Show featuring over 100 bikes from leading motorcycle brands.
Mr. Ginsberg said “we are excited about the show this year as it takes place in 8 pavilions and on four levels at the Shaw Centre. It’s the biggest show yet in terms of participants and floor space and show attendees will not be disappointed with the value and variety there is to see at this year’s show. It’s the largest automotive display between Toronto and Montreal.”
Highlighting this year’s show are two super cars worth over $ 4.5 million dollars. The Bugatti Veyron is the world’s fastest production car and is valued at $ 2 million. This will most likely be the only time anyone in Ottawa will have a chance to see this car. The second show stopper is the Pagani Huayra. This car is worth $2.5 million dollars and is also an extremely rare car. These two cars are not to be missed.
Mr. Ginsberg said “these two cars are worth the price of admission alone. We brought these in to give the people of Ottawa and Gatineau a chance to see some amazing cars plus we’ll have 4 Lamborghinis, and Lotus as part of the exotic collection along with offerings from 33 automotive brands.
The Ottawa Gatineau Auto Show VIP Gala is open to the public and it takes place March 16, 2016 and is a great place to meet up with old and new friends, meet the who’s who of the automotive industry and get an inside look at the show before the big opening at 10:00 am on Thursday March 17th.
