Volunteers from all over Shropshire gathered for lunch on a blustery May day – despite the fact that heavy showers had been forecast and there was a yellow weather warning.
JT Hughes Hyundai Telford to launch new dealership live on Facebook
JT Hughes will unveil its new Hyundai dealership, in Telford, at an official open day at their Stafford Park dealership and, simultaneously, on Facebook.
The new dealership unveiling will be shown live on Facebook, at 12.00 noon on Saturday, October 8th, to the Shropshire Facebook community.
Prior to the open day, JT Hughes has been running a competition to win a new Hyundai through its Facebook page. Over 1,000 Facebook fans have been received since the competition started; far surpassing its goal of 500 Facebook fans. The winner will be chosen on October 8th, during the open day and friends, family and the local Shropshire community can watch it live, through Facebook, at home.
By using their Facebook Page, to drum up excitement, in anticipation of the official launch event, JT Hughes expects a large attendance. â€˜Only people who have answered the competition questions on Facebook, and who attend the event, can enter the draw to win a new Hyundai,â€™ said JT Hughes Managing Director John Hughes. â€˜Not everyone who would like to attend will be able to, so we thought it would be a good idea to show the launch live on Facebook. That way anyone who is interested, or the friends and family of people at the event, can watch and see if they win. There will be other prizes drawn before the main one and everyone attending, who doesnâ€™t win a prize, will receive a consolation gift.â€™
Hyundai chose JT Hughes, as a franchise partner, because of their proven strengths in sales, their commitment to customer service and for their use of innovative marketing.
