Entertainment Marketplace Attracts Prestigious Luxury Brand Partners for Bombardier's Legend of Learjet VIP Event
Los Angeles, January 24th, 2011 - Entertainment Marketplace LLC was recently brought on by Bombardier Learjet to help raise sponsorship for the company's 2nd Annual Legend of Learjet event. The VIP, invitation-only reception was held at the Clay Lacy Aviation hanger at Van Nuys Airport, Van Nuys, CA with 900 aircraft owners and users, HNWI and corporate CEO's and their guests in attendance. Guests mingled among the various aircraft on display that included Learjets, two Challengers and a Global Express XR
With only a two month lead time, Entertainment Marketplace was able to raise almost $100,000 for the event through attracting carefully-chosen, luxury partners to position their brands in and around the private aircraft in the hanger. These brands included Vertu, AgustaWestland, Aston Martin, LOTUS, Spyker, Bentley Beverly Hills, Galpin Premier Collection, Patron Tequila, Shafer Wines and The Glenrothes.
Says Bombardier's Manager, Regional Marketing & Sponsorships, Murray Sutherland, "We are extremely pleased with the results that Entertainment Marketplace was able to achieve for us in such a short space of time. Each of our partners on the evening added to the exclusive feel of the event and provided the perfect accompaniment to our brand and our aircraft."
Says Entertainment Marketplace's Nicholas Frankl, "We have been working with Bombardier and their brands Learjet, Challenger and Global for a number of years and our intimate knowledge of their brands' marketing objectives allowed us to readily identify their ideal partners for such an event. Thanks to our broad range of direct relationships with the sort of luxury brands who then came on board, the evening proved even more successful than we could have hoped given the amount of time with which we had to work."
Thursday evening's elegant reception was followed on Friday by the Living Legends of Aviation gala, presented by Bombardier Learjet, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel where the President and CEO of Bombardier, Pierre Beaudoin, along with fellow aviation icons John Travolta, Jim Lovell (Mission Commander of Apollo 13), Delford M. Smith, Lynn Tilton, Clay Jones, Congressman Sam Johnson, Frank Robinson, and the legendary Doolittle Raiders were honored for their contributions to the world of aviation.
