Carlisle Events Goes Green in 2009

Green classification added to the 2009 show season showfield classes

CARLISLE, Pa. – Carlisle Events is going green in 2009! By introducing a green classification for

showfield participants registering for six of the eight Carlisle Events specialty shows, Carlisle Events

hopes to encourage enthusiasts of green and high-mileage vehicles to show off their passion for green

machines. The green classification was created to give a home to green vehicles utilizing new fuel

efficient technologies including hydrogen fuel cell, electric, gas-electric hybrids, biodiesel and clean

diesel vehicles. Awards will be given to the top three vehicles registered in the green class at Carlisle

Performance and Style – May 8-10, Carlisle Import/Kit-Replicar Nationals – May 15-17, Carlisle All-

Ford Nationals – June 5-7, Carlisle All-GM Nationals – June 26-28, Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals –

July 10-12 and the Carlisle All-Truck Nationals August 7-9.

Carlisle Events hopes to build upon the green classification by teaming up with automotive

manufacturers, colleges and universities and new technology developers to utilize the select shows as an

educational platform to showcase new products and models to the over half a million automotive

enthusiasts from around the world who travel to the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds each year. An educational

platform that Carlisle Events has successfully used in past years to introduce green technology to the

masses has been seminars that take place during events. It is the goal of Carlisle Events to build upon

their current seminar schedule with presentations and roundtables discussions that cover building, buying,

customizing and maintaining fuel efficient cars and trucks.

For more information, visit http://www.CarlisleEvents.com or call (717) 243-7855.

Carlisle Events, host of 10 annual collector car, truck and motorcycle events, attracts more than half a

million people to its 82-acre fairgrounds in Carlisle, Pennsylvania each year. Included in the annual

events schedule are two huge automotive swap meets, three auctions –Spring, Corvette and Fall – and

individual specialty shows featuring Corvettes, Fords, GMs, Chryslers, trucks, motorcycles, sport

compacts and imports. Founded in 1974 by friends Bill Miller and Chip Miller, the “Cars at Carlisle” shows

attract automotive enthusiasts from around the world.

Re: Carlisle Events Goes Green in 2009

We're hoping no stock Prius's show up at P&S or Import, but you never know, we're hoping to get the modifed ones! We noticed that a lot of SmartCars and other "green" vehicles are being customized and we wanted them to know they're welcome at Carlisle. At the Truck show we may get a few E85 GM trucks, but that's about it. And to clear any confusion, only Green vehicles from a specific mark can go to the specific Carlisle shows. Meaning you cannot take a Civic Hybrid to Ford or a GM to Chrysler or a car to the Truck show. The shows aren't changing. It's just a new class on the showfields. Oh, if you were at SEMA, you probably notcied a couple dozen SmartCars in booths and an entire Green section in the one building, so the green stuff is out there and its part of the future!
I'm looking for a job...10+ years of event & marketing experience and I have a BA in Advertising/Marketing. Relocation possible. Any suggestions PM me. Thanks!
