Prior to 2005, the Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) held a Gala Evening reserved exclusively for people in the automotive industry. Starting with the 2005 Edition of the MIAS, the Gala event was transformed into a chic and philanthropic evening called the Charity Preview Evening. Since then, the total amount raised at this prestigious event is awarded to renowned hospital foundations of the Greater Montreal area.
The Charity Preview Evening has now become the major event in Montreal for the month of January. Moreover, prior to the Auto Show’s official opening, more than 5,000 people have the ultimate privilege of discovering the many new innovations in the auto industry, and this, in a jazzy atmosphere, enhanced by a gourmet buffet and selection of fine wines, door prizes, draw of a great trip as well as a silent auction for all tastes and budgets. In short, everything is done to offer guests a memorable experience.
