Atlantic City Convention Center Welcomes Back The Atlantic City Auction & Car Show for the Next Five Years
The 2017 Show will Take Place February 10-12
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Monday, December 12, 2016) Meet AC is thrilled to announce The Atlantic City Auction & Car Show has signed a five year contract to return to the Atlantic City Convention Center for the years of 2017-2021.
GPK Auctions is proud to present the 44th annual Atlantic City Auction & Car Show February 10-12, 2017 at the Atlantic City Convention Center. The show has grown to be an annual three day event auctioning off over 400 cars in the spacious Atlantic City Convention Center. Along with the auction, attendees are able to enjoy a wide variety of vendors and a vast array of vehicles available for sale in the car corral.
“GPK Auctions is excited to continue our long standing relationship with Meet AC and we are very happy to call Atlantic City home for an additional five years. The Atlantic City Auction & Car Show is able to provide a cure for the cabin fever that everyone experiences in February because the show is located indoors. It's a perfect match,” stated Jay Silberman, president of GPK Auctions.
“The Atlantic City Auction & Car Show brings in an estimated annual economic impact of $4 million to Atlantic City and attracts 30,000 attendees each year. Meet AC is pleased that The Atlantic City Auction & Car Show will remain in Atlantic City through 2021 as we continue to grow the convention profile in Atlantic City,” said Jim Wood, president and CEO of Meet AC.
The 2017 show will feature a celebrity guest appearance by NASCAR driver, Joey Logano. Logano’s car will be on display at the show the entire weekend and he will be signing autographs on Saturday, February 11 and Sunday, February 12.
Tickets are now on sale and the cost is $25 for adults and $5 for children under the age of 12. Family day is Sunday, February 14 and children will receive free admission. Visit http://www.acclassiccars.com/ for more information and to purchase tickets.
