The Greater Los Angeles Auto Show is an annual auto show that takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California. The show has been held annually since 1907. The first show took place at Morley's Skating Rink in downtown Los Angeles, just four blocks from the current Convention Center location.

The show traditionally took place in early January, but in 2006 was moved to November so as not to be overshadowed by the North American International Auto Show. That year, one show was held in January and another in November, the latter being dubbed a "2007" show. The Los Angeles show is only the second International Auto Show in the United States to be officially recognized by the Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles, with the first recognized show in November 2006. With a special spot on the international calendar, it is likely that the LA show will become host to more vehicle introductions than before.
