State Farm Returns to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show as Premier Sponsor

CHICAGO (Feb. 6, 2019) – Chicago Auto Show organizers are proud to announce that State Farm returns to the 2019 show as a premier sponsor, a relationship that dates back more than a decade. In addition to premium exhibit and branding space on the show floor and market-wide promotional activities, Chicago Auto Show premier sponsors enjoy category exclusivity and receive additional exposure to show attendees through a benefits package.

“State Farm has been a staple exhibit for Chicago Auto Show attendees, consistently offering our guests a topnotch experience, from the State Farm Here to Help Center to interactive fun within their display,” said Chicago Auto Show Chairman Ray Scarpelli Jr.

State Farm is giving fans plenty of opportunity to get into the action by offering a life-size interactive game experience. As State Farm is “here to help life go right,” this year’s activation allows consumers to become an oversized game piece and experience The Game of Life through the lens of car-buying decisions, spanning the decades from owning a first car to a retirement RV. For participating, State Farm will provide participants with their life moment photos and a branded tote bag.

Representatives will also continue to be on hand to field thousands of questions and assist attendees at the Here to Help Center, located in the Grand Concourse throughout the entire public show, Feb. 9-18, at McCormick Place.
