The Philadelphia Auto Show Black Tie Tailgate is an annual philanthropic event that benefits Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The goal of the event is to raise as many funds as possible for the Hospital while providing guests a unique way to view the Philadelphia Auto Show. The 2019 Black Tie Tailgate at the Philadelphia Auto Show will take place Friday, February 1 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Please read below regarding our Black Tie Tailgate press pass policy.

Like any event similar in nature, every attendee must be fiscally-accounted for by its producers. Therefore, in the effort to provide as much financial support as possible to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation has streamlined its complimentary credential policy for industry members and interested media.

Black Tie Tailgate access for industry members will ONLY be granted to product specialists, display managers and/or other support staff who are specifically assigned to work the evening of the Black Tie Tailgate. Those who have been assigned to work the evening of the Black Tie Tailgate should bring this to the attention of the Show Office Staff when picking up their credentials upon arrival.

Credentials for members of the press will ONLY be granted to media partners of the Philadelphia Auto Show and/or through other public relations efforts. To discuss the opportunity to become a media partner, please contact Andrea Simpson at Please note: while post-event media coverage is always appreciated, it is the public relations mission of all parties involved with the Black Tie Tailgate to promote the event in a timely manner via pre-event publicity that specifically encourages event attendance and additional support of the Hospital.

Media members who would like to receive complimentary access to the Philadelphia Auto Show to collect information for his/her respective stories should request a press pass for our 2019 Media and Industry Preview Day when they become available.
