We’re Here, and Anxious to Get this Convention Started
We’re here in San Antonio at the 75th Annual NIADA Convention & Expo on a warm, summer day, and it’s great to see things getting underway at their first in-person, major event since 2019.
It was very interesting to hear that San Antonio has a long, rich history in transportation. The first recorded horseless carriage in San Antonio, an electric vehicle, was delivered to the Staacke Brothers livery service on Commerce Street in 1899. The first gasoline powered car in San Antonio arrived in 1901. 1902 saw the arrival of at least two more horseless carriages. The San Antonio Automobile Club was formed in October 1903.
Above is a newspaper article about the first “horseless carriage” in San Antonio. Should you be interested in learning more, visit here.
We are really excited to meet our existing clients, and will make ever attempt to meet everyone in attendance during the various meetings, our panel discussion, exposition time, and at networking events.
