Throughout the long weekend, there were a variety of activities for guests to fully immerse in the Giti brand experience.
During the 14th to 16th November 2019, Giti brand team members and partners from Asia, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa met together in Clark, Philippines for a weekend of learning, sharing, driving, and bonding together. These activities allowed their customers to experience the newly-launched high performance product GitiSport S1 in conjunction with Giti Passenger Car tyre launch event in the Philippines.
Throughout the long weekend, there were a variety of activities for guests to fully immerse in the Giti brand experience, with the theme of ‘Enjoy Driving’. The main activities of the weekend were featured on November 15th. In the morning, international distributors from various regions gathered for a fully-branded ‘Giti On Track | Family Gathering’ that included presentations to provide a clear vision and strategy regarding the Giti product and brand direction in a family atmosphere. New announcements and brand and product videos were introduced as part of the event, which showcased Giti’s direction of Product, Service, and Information – as well as intensive digital focus.
Following the morning’s activities, partners were able to go to the track for a Ride & Drive event to feel the control, smoothness, and braking of GitiSport S1 for themselves. This included slalom and wet and dry braking experiences with a 2018 Ford Mustang GT’s 5.0 Liter V8 460 hp and 7500 rpm. For hot laps, guests drove Audi R8, Porsche Carrera S, Porsche Cayman 2019, and Honda Type RS vehicles to feel the intense speed and performance. This hands-on action allowed guests to experience why the GitiSport S1 has tested well above even the top global brands in its attributes.
In the evening, international partners and team joined together with local Philippines dealers for the Giti brand passenger car tyre launch in the country for a full dinner and entertainment ceremony. Featuring a presentation by Giti Tire International Sales and Marketing Executive Director Chris Bloor, dealers were impressed by the wide range of high-tech and fun activities as part of the event. At the conclusion of the event, a video shown highlighting the events of the day was featured.
The events also coincided with the 2019 finale of the Giti Formula V1 Challenge series held in Clark, Philippines. Organised by Tuason Racing School, the series features seasoned and future racing superstars who have graduated from the local and international grassroots communities. All cars had Giti branding and were powered by GitiSport GTR3 RR1 tyres, bringing brand excitement to the community. The series winner Estefano Rivera, will go to the world championship at the famous Suzuka Circuit in Japan this December. In addition to the activities in Clark, the Giti brand partners from the Latin America and Middle East/Africa regions also paid a visit to the island of Cebu from 10th to 13th and 17th to 20th November respectively. This provided a chance for the long-traveling partners to have meetings with Giti team members, as well as a relaxed resort experience to further bond and improve morale. Altogether the experience was very positively received by guests, some of whom travelled across the world to attend.
Bloor noted, “This hugely successful event was a great opportunity to share best practice, business growth levers and the future strategic direction for our product and brand management.
“These important topics were complimented by a great deal of fun, camaraderie and networking energising our partners and team for 2020 and beyond.”
