December 1, 2011 (Kent, WA) â€“ Raleigh America is excited to announce that it will be presenting its 2013 product launch in conjunction with the annual DealerCamp event this coming July. While Raleigh has previously invited its top dealers to attend the unveiling locally in Washington, it believes that syncing schedules with the already popular DealerCamp event will lighten the travel load for busy retailers during their sales season.
At DealerCamp, retailers will have the chance to meet with Raleigh product and marketing team as well as sales representatives to test ride and discuss new bikes before committing to yearly orders. What’s more, DealerCamp will host Raleigh’s second annual Midsummer Night’s Cyclocross Classic, which promises racers prestigious prize packages and new team positions that are up for grabs in 2012.
â€œThe Deer Valley venue is spectacular, and the timing really works to effectively launch our bicycles to a wide range of dealers and the cycling industry as a whole,â€ said Raleigh VP of Product & Marketing, Chris Speyer. â€œWe will have a preview event for our top dealers two days prior to the start of DealerCamp, and the bikes will be showcased for public viewing throughout the rest of the show.â€
“We couldn’t be happier in our partnership with Raleigh,â€ said Lance Camisasca, president at Lifeboat Events. â€œThey clearly understand the value of participating in the larger community of DealerCamp and will communicate their own strong brand identity through their retailer activities that are planned for the course of the week. We hope to use this relationship as a model for the future.”
DealerCamp is scheduled for July 24-26, 2012. Retailers who haven’t already registered to attend can find all of the necessary information at http://www.bikedealercamp.com/.
