MARKETING: We’ve developed a comprehensive, multi-platform, national marketing campaign including direct mail, newspaper, social media, radio, television, car and lifestyle websites and magazines, posters, shirts, signage positioned throughout the downtown area.

SALES: Sponsors and vendors can personally engage with Collector Car Owners and spouses. The median income of a car collector is above average and they have an appreciation for the finer things in life that go beyond their vehicle. To put it into perspective, car owners spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase their vehicles, hundreds of thousands of dollars to service their vehicles to get it into pristine condition for judging and tens of thousands of dollars to participate in these competitions through entrance fees, transportation costs, lodging, etc. This is a very affluent demographic that would be worthy to capture!

GOODWILL: Create goodwill for your company by supporting events that benefit a nationally known charity with a locally based headquarters.
