Urban Wheel Awards Drive Global Vehicle Sales

A select group of manufacturers have come to recognize other benefits of the Urban Wheel Awards as well.

Payton says; "The auto industry spends millions of dollars lobbying trade, business and political leaders who routinely attend the Urban Wheel Awards. Savvy leaders in the industry have figured this out and are usually among the top sponsors to make sure they are positioned to benefit from this opportunity. In fact, dealers, suppliers, community leaders, media, trade associations and advocacy groups all use the Urban Wheel Awards as an occasion to network with key leaders in the industry and gain business as a result."

"General Motors has been a major supporter of the Urban Wheel Awards for many years because we believe it's important to celebrate the vast accomplishments of diverse individuals within our industry.  We're also a company that is proud to have been recognized many times by Urban Wheel for our support of diversity and inclusion. We're particularly honored to be named the Urban Car of the Year for the 2013 Cadillac ATS.  We believe distinctions such as these have a positive impact on the purchasing decisions of our customers and potential customers," says Eric Peterson, vice president of global diversity, General Motors.

Whether selling more cars, creating opportunities for business leaders, or celebrating the accomplishments of women and people of color in the automotive industry, the Urban Wheel Awards event is far more than a mere awards show, it's become a major resource that auto companies, dealers and others can build on to increase revenue and automotive business in this country and abroad.
