Get Ready for the 2014 Edmonton Motor Show
Auto insiders of Edmonton unite! That’s right, the 2014 Edmonton Motor Show is set to open its doors to the public this Thursday, April 10th.
The four-day event that runs until Sunday the 13th is Western Canada’s largest automotive show, with car manufacturers from the tried n’ true to the super exotic ready to fill the cavernous halls of the Edmonton Expo Centre. Get ready to mingle with the who’s who of local dealerships, customization shops, parts providers, and local automotive enthusiasts.
And did we mention that the best and brightest of the new 2015 models will all be on hand?
Why you should be there
Still haven’t realized why you should definitely go?
- Because your customers will be there: Don’t worry if they seem to be swooning over the new Ferrari and Maserati fleets. When they get to your pavilions, it’s because they’re interested. Have a friendly chat, car nut to car nut, win the conversation, and don’t let them be swept up by your rival dealers.
- Spring content for your blog: What better place to get your spring blog season started (and boost your search rankings) than with a few blog posts documenting your experience at the Edmonton Motor Show? Remind your email list about how they saw you at your fun and informative display, and show them that you’re a human who can have fun, too. Fill your film with candid photos of you and your staff enjoying the food and flashy sports cars, and posing with out-of-town tourists and local TV celebrities.
- Get out there and network: You guessed it, it’s not just your potential customers who you should be out there meeting. We’re all here because we’re crazy about cars. So drop the schtick, and go out and meet people. You never know when you’ll discover that great specialty mechanic or custom shop to refer a client for value-added service your dealership doesn’t offer. Or who knows if you’ll run into your future Sales Manager waiting to hear from a keynote speaker.
Wednesday’s VIP Precious Metal Gala
But why wait until Thursday? Get yourself a ticket to Wednesday’s Precious Metal Gala enjoy the event as a VIP. With greater access to the cars and exhibits than offered to the general public, Wednesday’s formal gala will be an elegant ticket of fine dining, dazzling displays, and electric entertainment. You can even stock up on Facebook profile pics for the year, as you hobnob with Strathcom staffers. Just don’t be the guy wearing cargo shorts and sports sandals.
So be sure to stop by the 2014 Edmonton Motor Show. Adult general admittance tickets are only $15, so even if you’re not there strictly on business, be sure not to miss out in the action!
