MONTREAL, Dec. 17, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Desjardins Insurance is presenting the Montreal International Auto Show together with Le Journal de Montréal, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal from January 16 to 25, 2015. This year's program includes plenty of surprises, more than 500 models on exhibit, exciting premieres and attractions for all tastes!
A world of automotive wonders!
Maserati, Aston Martin, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Lamborghini, Ferrari… The show includes the very best of the automobile world, with the slickest designs, most advanced technology and modern mechanics. Plus, this year will mark the return of Alfa Romeo in line up of super luxury cars!
A treat for the eyes!
This year, the star on our posters and in our TV ads is the Magnum MK5. Visitors will have the chance to get up close and admire the unique design of the first Canadian vehicle to officially join the international market of road-legal track day cars. Known for its vibrant spirit and finesse, the Magnum MK5 turns heads wherever it goes.
Just for Laughs – A first!
We're thrilled to announce that the Auto Show is partnering with Just For Laughs Shows for the first time this year! To bring a smile to the faces of automobile enthusiasts, we're presenting the brand new "Juste une affaire de gars" comedy show (in French only). It's entirely dedicated to stories about cars and everything related to! Michel Barrette will host the evening and be joined by several well-known comedians. The show takes place on January 21 at Théâtre St-Denis. Tickets are on sale on ticketpro.ca or at 514-416-7771.
Test drive your dream car
The Auto Show has joined forces with AutoGo to bring you the 2015 Dream Car Test Drive event! This new initiative, which kicked off in the fall, allows the show's friends and Facebook fans to decide which cars they get to test. We've narrowed the list down to 11 dream cars, all of which will be available to try at the Auto Show. Test drives will run from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on January 16 to 24, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on January 25.
Year after year, the Performance Zone is a resounding success for all modified car fans. It spans two rooms brimming with extraordinary vehicles, electric energy and festive entertainment. The Performance Zone is consistently one of the Auto Show's most popular attractions.
Exciting news: The outstanding Chevrolet Volt is back and Auto Show visitors will have the chance to win one of these magnificent electric cars. The final draw will take place on Sunday, January 25, 2015.
To demonstrate our appreciation for all of the show's friends and Facebook fans, we're holding eight Facebook contests started December 1. There will be eight weekly draws and great prizes to take home. Visit the Auto Show's official Facebook page and share it to increase your chances of winning!
Kia Childcare Centre
The Auto Show and Kia Motors hope that visiting the event will be fun for kids and grown-ups alike. That's why we offer free childcare during the show's opening hours. Early childhood educators will offer professional care—including games, face painting and crafts—to kids aged 3 to 10 years.
Give blood. Give life.
Held in conjunction with Héma-Québec and CTV Montreal, the blood drive will take place at Complexe Desjardins from January 19 to 23, 2015 (Monday to Friday). It's in you to give!
Ajusto Grand Rally at the Desjardins booth
Desjardins Insurance is proud to sponsor the Montreal International Auto Show for the eighth straight year. And for that extra wow factor, we're offering visitors a chance to take part in the Ajusto Grand Rally on touchscreen. Also available on the Ajusto Facebook page, this game is a fun way to discover Quebec. Participants at the Desjardins booth get a chance to win the grand prize: one month's rental of a fully electric Tesla!
P&C insurance agents will be on hand to provide quotes and answer questions on our products and offers. Visitors can also discover the Desjardins Ready-to-Drive Loan, available when buying a car through a merchant or dealership.
Finally, visitors can show their Desjardins debit card to save $2 on their ticket purchase at the box office of the Auto Show: another great Desjardins member advantage!
