MONTREAL, Jan. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - For the fourth straight year,
Desjardins General Insurance (DGI) is proud to sponsor the Montreal
International Auto Show (MIAS), which will run from January 14 to 23 at
the Palais des congrès de Montréal. Visitors are invited to stop by the
DGI booth, where they can be filmed at the wheel of a fabulous
convertible and enter the Win a made-to-measure Trip contest for a
chance to win a $2,500 travel voucher.
Visitors choose a landscape for their background, and then animation is
used to create the illusion that they are driving along the world's
most scenic roads. They'll receive their video by email as a souvenir
of their MIAS experience.
Everyone who is filmed will also be eligible to enter the Win a
made-to-measure Trip contest, featuring the grand prize of a $2,500
travel voucher. But to win this prize, they'll need the help of
friends. In keeping with the virtual theme, participants can ask their
friends to view their video and vote for it using email, Facebook,
Twitter and other social networking tools. Plus, friends who vote for a
video will automatically be entered in a draw to win a $500 travel
voucher. Contest details will be available at the DGI booth.
Experienced DGI insurance agents will also be on hand at the MIAS to
provide auto insurance quotes and answer visitors' questions.
