The 8th edition of the most coveted classy auto show has received a boost from RwandAir and Liquid Telecom.
They join already established partners, Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA), Sheraton Kampala Hotel, NBS, Singleton, and Events Warehouse ahead of the show slated for July 27th, 2019 under the theme, “Love of Machines”.
Speaking to the press at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel, Ivan Mugisha, the Country Manager Rwanda Air Uganda, said the airline will provide tickets for the winners. “As Rwanda Air, we are excited to be part of the most amazing auto show in the country, region and continent. We will offer 2 business class tickets to the winners to test our new route from Entebbe to Guangzhou in China.
In addition to Rwanda Air’s new sponsorship package, Liquid Telecom has also joined the sponsorship board to provide free wifi at the show for revellers to enjoy and share their experience with the rest of the world online.
“Internet today is a right and no longer just a privilege. It enables us connect beyond borders and has now become a big player in tourism promotion which fits right into the purpose of the CBA Vintage and Classic Auto Show.
Many people fly in to see and be part of the event and the best we can do is supplement the efforts of the organizers in raising such an amazing and unique show by creating the free connector of worlds which is the internet.
We urge all the event participants to use the free services availed to them to spread the word so that come next year, we see more tourists and inevitably contribute to the economic growth of the country,” Dennis Keko Kahindi, CEO of Liquid Telecom Uganda said.
Dr. John Baptist Niwagaba, the Uganda Vintage and Classic Auto Show chairman welcomed the sponsors on board and reassured them and the show revellers of an unforgettable experience larger than those created in the previous shows.
“We are very excited about our new sponsors, Rwanda Air and Liquid Telecom in addition to our already existing long time partners. With all this support, we are left with no room for mistakes or doubt that this will be the biggest and best CBA Uganda Vintage and Classic Auto Show yet and we can promise all our participants and revellers that they will have a great time!”
A snail trail of the competing cars will be held on the eve of the event, July 26th, 2019 between 12:00am to 2pm from Shell Bugolobi to the Sheraton Kampala Hotel Gardens.
This will be organized in partnership with Uganda Police to ensure security and non-interruption of traffic on the chosen route.
