Big news on the Montreal auto show scene as the Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) acquires the Montreal Electric Vehicle Show (MEVS).

For several years, two very distinct events have been taking place in the metropolis. This will continue to be in the short to medium term, according to MIAS, which is proud to announce that its team will now take on the organization of MEVS.

We can guess that in a few years, the two will become one, but we will have to wait and see, as it is difficult to predict when it will be more advantageous and relevant to do so.
