With six months to plan and organize the 2009 event this may be the year the USACi World Finals returns to the glory days the organization enjoyed during the first few years in Kansas City.
USACi president Ralph Randall told 12voltnews.com “I’m more pumped about this year’s World Finals than I have been in a while. We are committed early to a great facility and have a fantastic retail sponsor in CarToys. They are very active in the Tulsa market and have a long history of successful retail promotions”.
In an interview with CarToys’ GM Charles Stewart he told 12voltnews.com “We feel this is a huge opportunity to raise the visibility of mobile electronics in Tulsa and the surrounding area. We had several successful USACi events last year and sought Ralph after CES to move the Finals event to Tulsa”.
As a company CarToys took several first place trophies at the ‘08 USACi Finals in Dallas last fall. “We build a lot of show cars” Chris Pate relayed to 12voltnews.com. “Since that is one of our strong points it’s a natural to be the retail sponsor of a national event like the USACi World Finals.” Pate is the team/show coordinator for CarToys.
Randall feels all of the elements are in place to put the USACi Finals back on top. Tulsa’s centrally located in the US and is within an easy drive from other metro areas like Oklahoma City, Wichita, southwestern Missouri, northwestern Arkansas and the Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex.
A new web page, www.usaciworldfinals.com has all the details available at this time. The host hotel, a DoubleTree is connected to the convention center and has a rate posted at $88.00 a night for the USACi block.
Let put this event on our calendars as a must attend.
