MONTREAL, Nov. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Already in its 40th year, the Montréal
International Auto Show (MIAS), taking place from January 18 to the 27, 2008,
is almost upon us! The event, which consistently attracts hundreds of
thousands of passionate car enthusiasts every year, will once again be held at
the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
Following a very successful path
Last year's visitor's circuit was such a phenomenal success (over 77%
satisfaction rating!) that organizers have decided to repeat the experience
during this year's milestone 40th Edition. As a result, the now-famous
level 7, called 7th Heaven, home to all the Show's wonderfully exotic
automobiles, will remain an optional part of the circuit.
Still Hot... 40 Years Later
At the heart of the Show, visitors will find a host of special
attractions and events designed to both fascinate and amaze. Chief among them
is a segment entitled Still Hot... 40 Years Later, a brand new attraction
created specifically in honour of the Show's 40th Edition. The exhibit takes
visitors on a trip through time to admire some of the most famous automobiles
from 1968, along with their modern-day counterparts. Here's a peak at some of
the models on display, simply to whet your appetite: The Corvette, the
Charger... these are but a few of what awaits you during this fascinating trip
