ON EDIT.
Original thread title was

OP has since put Car in title so we know what show it is.
Thanks OP

I spend hours at the show. But I go every 3 years because year to year the changes aren't very big. So when I do go it takes the day up for me usually just a downtown dinner afterwards if anything. I mean theres not much do if you're not into cars.

when I go to autoshow usually get there early , exit with handstamp for lunch somewhere cheaper, then come back again for more afternoon fun. While I'm there I enter all the contests . Best thing I've won so far was an Apple iPod Nano. Also hit Steam Whistle Brewery for free beer sample and $4 pints after that.

One cheapo move for fresh air is to walk the waterfront all the way to Island Airport. There you can grab the free Porter shuttle bus back that'll leave you right near the Auto Show.

If you're qualified enough though, I highly recommend the advance Media Preview pass. You get the special day on Feb 16 with far fewer crowds and pass is good for admission every day of the show. Almost every car is open on Media Preview day plus you get free breakfast.

Q - Going first time here. Whats it really like? Are all cars open and accessible? Can i like sit in a Mclaren? Is there some sort of dress code? How do I take parts in the contests? Can I pick up freebies there or buy cool shirts and stuff?

A - It is like a big , fancy car showroom . Most regular cars are open and accessible.

For Ferraris, Lambos, exotics you should dress up and look like you could actually afford to buy one. Then you have to speak to a brand rep who can unlock it for you.

Contests? Just fill in the paper or electronic ballots with your contact info. Most require you to be 18+ though.

Some freebies. Usually branded shopping bags and pens, posters, etc.

I wouldn't buy anything there. Just find it all ridiculously overpriced. Understandable since booking floorspace at the MTCC isn't cheap.

My biggest tip is to go early on a weekday. Weekends are absolute madness. Big crowds everywhere and if you lugging a winter coat and wearing heavy warm boots it isn't a fun time.

Good tips!

Since the MTCC is accessible via the skyway from Union Station, take the subway to avoid paying parking. And, if you don't plan on going outside, leave the jacket at home or in the car from your subway parking lot and wear a sweater or sweatshirt. Bonus if you live in a condo with access to a subway station.

I have never been able to attend any auto shows. It seems to be a good deal on 21st.

The auto show is awesome for people who are thinking of buying a car in the coming future since you can compare and sit in ALL the cars in one day instead of driving from dealership to dealership to check out and compare cars.
