NADA Show 2020 is just days away, and this year’s show will be one to remember. Find out all of the must-know info to be prepared for this exciting weekend, Friday, February 14 through Monday, February 17.

Holiday Weekend Travel

Keep in mind that our Show weekend is bookended by two big holidays: Valentine’s Day on Friday 2/14 and President’s Day on Monday 2/17. This means you’ll want to allow additional time for travel to and from airports, and plan ahead for restaurant reservations and entertainment options while you’re in the city. Now is also a good time to make sure you’ve secured any rental or other car needs you may have, using your NADA discounts. Learn more.

What to Packweather

Mild temperatures are ahead in Las Vegas. Check out the forecast and don’t forget your coat, it can get chilly at night! Highs will be in the low-to-mid-60s and lows in the low-40s, and partly cloudy.

The attire for the Show is business casual (remember, convention center rooms can get chilly), with the exception of some evening events and galas, where some choose to wear their favorite cocktail or evening attire.
