LogoMBP.jpg

France Galop and Mercedes-Benz Paris announce the renewal of their partnership, which began in 2019, for another 3 years
 

Within the framework of this agreement, Mercedes-Benz  Paris, a distribution subsidiary of the Mercedes-Benz Group’s prestigious brand, has become the Official Partner and Official Vehicle for all of the race days covered by two different events held on France Galop’s racecourses: the 29 “Family Race Days” events, a fantastic day out for families that combines racing and entertainment, and the 8 “JeuXdi by ParisLongchamp” events, the trendiest after-work event in Paris!
 
During these operations, Mercedes-Benz Paris wishes to continue promoting – to both racegoers and racing professionals – its status as the go-to brand for e-mobility in Greater Paris and showcase its range of electric and rechargeable hybrid vehicles, the largest range on the market. Since the partnership began in 2019, several actions to recruit new customers and enhance the loyalty of existing ones have been successfully rolled out on ParisLongchamp and Saint-Cloud racecourses. By extending this partnership, they will be able to take advantage of these events to boost their actions’ effectiveness and scope.
 
Marc Frank, President of Mercedes-Benz Paris, announced:
“Mercedes-Benz Paris’ clients appreciate being invited to events at the racecourses, and all of the people on the racecourse show interest when we promote our range of Mercedes vehicles on these sites. It is therefore a win-win partnership that is being extended. This is why we wanted Mercedes-Benz Paris to become the Official Vehicle for the Family Race Days and JeuXdi by ParisLongchamp events.”
 
Delphine Violette, Sales and Marketing Director at France Galop, added:
“France Galop is delighted to renew this partnership, which connects Mercedes-Benz Paris with two events that each comprise several race days during the course of the racing season. By becoming the Official Vehicle for our Family Race Days and JeuXdi By ParisLongchamp, Mercedes-Benz Paris is capitalising on the diversity of the clients who attend these festive and convivial race days, as well as on the drawing power of France Galop’s racecourses.”
