WINTRUST RETURNS AS CHICAGO AUTO SHOW EXCLUSIVE BANK SPONSOR AND PRESENTING PARTNER OF THE SUPERCAR GALLERY
Wintrust returns as the exclusive bank sponsor of the Chicago Auto Show and presenting partner of the Supercar Gallery, an area of the show that showcases rare, exotic and ultra-high-performance sports cars. The 2022 gallery lineup includes vehicles from high-end manufacturers like Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce and more.
Leading up to the show, Wintrust hosted a sweepstakes on their website for people to enter to win VIP access into the gallery, and now they're giving attendees additional opportunities for exclusive access. During the public show, Feb. 12-21, attendees are encouraged to post a picture of their dream car from the show floor and tag #SupercarSweeps. The Chicago Auto Show and Wintrust will monitor entries as they come in and select two winners each day for a VIP experience behind the glass to see these luxury vehicles up close.
"The Chicago Auto Show is a premier event that showcases the newest vehicles and concept cars in the great Windy City," said Ed Wehmer, founder and CEO of Wintrust. "As Chicago's Bank, Wintrust is proud to support such an iconic experience, which represents the best of what our city has to offer."
Current Wintrust customers will also receive discounted weekday admission and branded ATMs will be placed throughout the show. The full vehicle lineup in the Wintrust Supercar Gallery is as follows: Aston Martin DB 11, Aston Martin DBS, Aston Martin DBX, Bentley Bentayga S, Bentley Continental GT Speed, Lamborghini Huracan, Lamborghini Huracan STO, Lamborghini Urus, Maserati Ghibli Modena, Maserati Levante, Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge and Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended.
"Premier partners like Wintrust enjoy category exclusivity, custom branding packages, social media integration and more to help positively position these brands in front of consumers," said Chicago Auto Show Director of Marketing Jim OBrill. "Moreover, premier sponsors typically have high recall in their category along with millions of impressions from the show. It's an opportunity for brands to engage with their core audience while highlighting new products and services."
