“We are thrilled to be working with the Ontario Convention Center on this exciting event,” said Castle. “With over 10 years of auto show production under my company’s belt, we are looking forward to taking the Inland Empire International Auto Show to the next level.”
Plans for the show include expansion into outside tented areas, the addition of more ride and drive tracks and a date change in 2014. “We will be moving the show in 2014 to the weekend after Mother’s Day in order to take full advantage of displaying all the very newest automotive product to the Inland Empire market,” Castle continued. “Many of the new-model releases don’t occur until later in the auto show season; we want to capitalize on that fact.”
According to Krouse, the City of Ontario and the area new car dealers are extremely supportive of the new show production team. “We are looking forward to building an event that everyone in the community can be proud of, a signature event for the Ontario Convention Center,” Krouse added. “We feel this is the team that can make this happen.”
