New company takes over production of auto show at Ontario Convention Center

Ontario Convention Center and Visitors Bureau announced today that a new production company would be taking over the Inland Empire International Auto Show when it is held on August 23-25.

Castle Communications, Inc., under the leadership of owner Stacey Castle, is a special event, marketing and public relations company that currently produces the Sacramento International Auto Show.

“We watched what they had done expanding the Sacramento International Auto Show from a 75,000-square-foot inside-space-only show to over a million feet inside-and-out, and knew this was the company for us.” said Michael Krouse, the president and CEO of the Ontario Convention Center and Visitors Bureau.

    I hope that Castle Communications can get better participation from the vendors. I attended the 2011 show, and while I enjoyed the Prius test drive (and the food trucks), I was disappointed to find no staffing in either the Ford or the Honda areas. I realize that this isn’t Detroit, but it would be nice if all of the companies actually sent people to an auto show at which they’re exhibiting.

      John, thanks for the comment. It sounds like the new production company is looking to push more interaction between the customer and the manufacturers.
