Canadian International AutoShow 2018 – Recap
The Strathcom team was ecstatic to attend the Canadian International AutoShow VIP night last week at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and to see so many of our clients and industry partners out for the evening.
Things started off with checking out the Facebook VIP Pit Stop party before the show at the Rec Room. Facebook put on an amazing event, as always, with a live band, great food and a gif center (check out our Instagram page, @strathcommedia, to see us in action). Two of our favourite highlights were the mobile oyster shucking bar, and the macaron station where you could get your face laser printed on a macaron flavour of your choice! The Pit Stop party ended off with a great speech from Joshua Bloom, Head of Auto at Facebook, showcasing how far the platform has come even in the last year alone.
From the Pit Stop party, we made our way over to the big ticket event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. There were thousands of cars, trucks, exotics and more to check out and we definitely didn’t even scratch the surface. One of our favourite areas that we checked out was Ford’s. Not only did they have an awesome Lego building setup where you could build your own Lego Ford racer, and a life-size Lego Ford racer present, they were also showcasing a Ford GT Performance car that made us weak in the knees.
And what kind of AutoShow would it be without a heavy luxury and exotic section? The Canadian International AutoShow is on from February 16th to 25th and we definitely recommend checking it out if you’re in town. If Toronto is too far to venture, mark April 12th – 15th in your calendar for the Edmonton MotorShow.
