Q: Can you sit inside the vehicles?

A: Most manufacturer’s displays welcome show-goers to sit inside the vehicles, however some will have them locked. No one is allowed to sit in the privately owned vehicles such as classics or exotics without express permission from the owner.

Q: Will the representatives be aggressively trying to sell me their cars?

A: The Cleveland Auto Show is a non-selling show. This means that no sales are allowed to be made on the floor and no one will pressure you into buying anything. It is a show for you, the consumer, to inspect all angles of the vehicles and have a pressure-free environment in which to do it. The product specialists at each manufacturer booth will be able to answer any questions you may have about the vehicles.

Q: Will the manufacturers give out rebates on vehicles?

A: It varies by manufacturer, so check with the representatives at each display! Often, a visit to the show is required, but check our incentives page for details.

A: You can buy tickets online by clicking TICKETS above, or by visiting the box office during regular show hours. Automotive class groups should visit our Career Day page, as alternate pricing is not available at the box office.
