Lincoln MKR Concept Car - Concept Car of the Show


The Southern Automotive Media Association recognized the two most outstanding vehicles on display in the South Florida International Auto Show when it named a “Star of the Show” and “Concept Car of the Show.”

The annual SFIAS opened Nov. 9 at the Miami Beach Convention Center and continued through Nov. 18.   SAMA members previewed the lineup of vehicles the day before the auto show opened and their selections were announced at a breakfast on the morning of the show’s media day.

“This is the inaugural year for the Southern Automotive Media Association and the beginning of what we hope will be a long and fruitful affiliation with the South Florida International Auto Show,” said SAMA President Ron Beasley. “We envision that our selections for the Star of the Show and Concept Car of the Show will become annual awards that are looked forward to by the automotive industry.”  

SAMA was formed earlier this year to “provide a platform for the South Florida automotive media community for the development and growth of its members and affiliates to strengthen their voice and representation in the industry.”

Membership is open to all automotive journalists, media organizations, corporate communications specialists, marketing and advertising representatives, and auto manufacturers related to South Florida ’s dynamic automotive industry.
