The company wanted to expand its presence in the Middle East and was looking to sign up with distributors in the region during the Dubai International Motor Show in 2009. We had a tough challenge on hand as there were hundreds of exhibitors during the show that included luxury cars such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bugatti, Mercedes, Aston Martin, Lexus, Corvette, BMW and several other brands such as Toyota, Chevrolet Ford, Honda and Mazda. We were up against all these brands but once again we can proudly state that we definitely beat all of them in terms of the brand visibility within the target media during the show.
