Corvette America Named Official Sponsor of Corvettes at Carlisle
Corvette America Named as Presenting Partner for 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle Weekend
Back for its 6th Year, Corvette America Moves from Fun Field Sponsor to Presenting Sponsor
CARLISLE, PA – Corvettes at Carlisle has been an international happening for Corvette enthusiasts since its inception in 1982. The weekend draws over 50,000 enthusiasts and 5,000 Corvettes to America's Automotive Hometown, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. In addition to the cars, there are industry guests, special displays, a downtown Carlisle Corvette parade and more. Further, there is an amazing Manufacturers Midway in place that houses a popular mix of vendors who cater to the needs of Corvette lovers. Of those vendors, Corvette America has taken a major step forward by aligning itself as the Official Presenting Partner of Corvettes at Carlisle. The event, August 22-24, 2014 will now be known as Corvettes at Carlisle Presented by Corvette America.
The business partnership with Corvette America has been in place for many years and began to flourish in 2009 when they became the Official Fun Field Sponsor. Having been a part of Corvette weekend since 1982, Corvette America has a strong following within the Corvette community. Their name recognition combined with that of Carlisle Events has resulted in positive benefits for both entities. Founded in 1977, Corvette America is based in Reedsville, Pennsylvania and is the #1 manufacturer and supplier of Corvette interiors, wheels and parts. Corvette America products are available through all the major Corvette aftermarket suppliers as well as thousands of dealers throughout the United States, Canada and around the world. Their 200,000 sq ft headquarters is home to corporate offices, sales and a huge inventory that allows them to service every customer’s needs plus their separate 55,000 sq ft manufacturing facility produces the most extensive array of high quality Corvette interior products in the industry.
With a commitment to Carlisle Events such as this, Corvette America recognizes the importance of an event like Corvettes at Carlisle. The partnership not only allows Corvette America to continue highlighting their products at the event in front of a large-scale audience, but it also furthers recognition of their brand within the Corvette community.
Dave Hall, President of Corvette America, noted, "Partnering with Carlisle Events has been one of the best decisions Corvette America has made during the past five years. We firmly believe that having an even greater presence onsite during Corvettes at Carlisle weekend will only serve to enhance what is already a very strong relationship."
“Since the first day we met with the Corvette America team we felt an instant synergy,” said Carlisle Events co-owner and Corvettes at Carlisle Event Manager Lance Miller. “Since day one we discussed how our company and theirs could work together to achieve our goals,” continued Miller. “I can undoubtedly say that both teams have gone above and beyond. We’re thrilled to work with such a great company and team. Most of all we’re thankful for the friendship that’s evolved and happy to have them as a significant part of this event for the sixth consecutive year.”
Along with the glowing comments from Lance Miller and Dave Hall, Corvettes at Carlisle continues to grow within the Corvette community. The event annually welcomes an international audience and to date, guests are confirmed in 2014 from as far away as Australia.
