What Car? has announced that Mondial Assistance UK will continue its sponsorship of the executive car category in the 2013 What Car? Car of The Year Awards.
The What Car? Car of the Year Awards are the most coveted accolades in the automotive industry. The Awards are presented to cars that set the highest standards in their sector after being put through the toughest, most rigorous tests by the most experienced team in the business.
Andrew Golby, What Car? publishing director, said: “We are pleased to be working with Mondial Assistance. It will help deliver our target to reach as many motorists as possible with the What Car? Car of the Year Awards news.”
The benefits of the sponsorship deal includes the alignment with the most authoritative and trusted brand in motoring, brand positioning and awareness, extensive PR opportunities, networking and brand association with the awards via a multi-channel promotional campaign.
Lee Taylor, Automotive Sales Director for Mondial Assistance in the UK said: “The sponsorship of the What Car? Awards is an important platform for us to build awareness of our change of name to become Allianz Global Assistance later this year. The automotive market remains an important part of our business and we will continue in our delivery and development of support services to vehicle manufacturers and their customers. Continuing our support of What Car? and its Car of The Year Awards demonstrates our commitment to the UK motor industry and enables us to communicate with the growing What Car? audience”.
Andrew Golby continued: “Winning a What Car? Award is good for a car maker’s business. The authority of the What Car? brand sells cars, plain and simple. It adds power to advertising and marketing campaigns and is a huge draw for customers.”
The What Car? Car of the Year Awards event is attended by more than 1000 leading industry figureheads alongside the most influential motoring correspondents from the wider media.
The event is to be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on January 9, 2013 with top-class entertainment yet to be announced. Previous headline acts have included Jonathan Ross, Jimmy Carr, Al Murray and Jo Brand. For more information and table bookings visit whatcarawards.com
