As one of the largest auto shows in the country, the Philadelphia International Auto Show is vitally important to consumers in the Greater Philadelphia region. In 2009, nearly 90 percent of attendees in the market for a new vehicle reported that visiting the Auto Show influenced their next purchasing decision, according to exit surveys. In addition, over the last two decades, the ADAGP has been able to donate more than $4 million to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, thanks to the success of the Auto Show and its affiliated ADAGP activities. For the 2010 event, the ADAGP will proudly continue its tradition of donating one dollar for every Auto Show ticket sold to the Hospital through its Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation.
