D.C. Auto Show’s 2021 Season Kicks off with Virtual Space Draw

Planning for the 2021 Washington, D.C. Auto Show kicked into overdrive late last month, as representatives from than a dozen automakers gathered online for the show’s first-ever virtual space draw.

While the COVID-19 pandemic required the show’s annual space draw to be moved online, the transition was a largely seamless one, as automakers selected their space for the 2021 show over a Zoom video conference meeting. Members of the Auto Show staff updated participants on the show’s initiatives for the upcoming year, including rigid safety and cleanliness standards, and other plans for crowd capacity control, social distancing enforcement, and other vital health protocols.

Representatives from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center also updated show participants on their health and safety initiatives for events to be held in early 2021. WANADA would like to thank our supporters and partners in the D.C. government, Hargrove, and all participating auto manufacturers and representatives, for their support in making this virtual space draw a success.

The 2021 Washington Auto Show will be open to the public every day from January 29 through February 7. Many more details, including information on ticketing, safety, and a detailed floor plan of exhibitors, will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
