In January, Franconians were honored to represent clients at events on opposite sides of the country. From Detroit to San Francisco, we played hard and worked even harder. Here’s what we’ve been up to in the past month.

Supported Haartz at the EyesOn Design Awards

Digital Account Executive Geoff Geist and Senior Account Executive Megan Bonelli were a part of the team that coordinated Haartz’s sponsorship of the 2019 EyesOn Design Awards. The team took the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) by storm on behalf of our client, providing design counsel, coordinating media relations and further connecting with key OEM designers and decision makers.

Welcomed automotiveMastermind to the Motor City

Franco supported automotiveMastermind at the Automotive News World Congress to help integrate the company further into the Detroit dealership market. Account Manager Ann Marie Fortunate and President Tina Kozak were thrilled to be a part of the action.

Went all Out with SMDI at NAIAS

Franco’s B2B team camped out at NAIAS to help the Steel Market Development Institute (SMDI) “steel the show.” They put months of hard work into planning and promoting SMDI’s presence at the show, including the event campaign, design of the exhibit space, video components, a virtual reality experience and related branding including the Cobo marquee, People Mover station and more. A lot of people came together to make it all happen!

STAHLS’ sponsored WXYZ family day and brought a 1939 Ford Midget Racer which was built and designed by Henry Ford himself and given to William Clay Ford Sr. on his 14th birthday (which was on display). Franco had a great time supporting this exciting day!

Rocked the NADA Show Floor

Later in the month, Account Manager Ann Marie Fortunate and President Tina Kozak supported the automotiveMastermind team at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) in San Francisco. Franco assisted with social media, press conference coordination, advertising, media relations and more. Congrats on a successful event, Mastermind.

It’s hard to believe January is already behind us, but February is shaping up to be great.
