The “Italian Stampedes” Toward Concorso Italiano with Al & Ed’s Autosound
IRVINE, CA. — June 27, 2010 — Al & Ed’s Autosound is announcing the acquisition of inaugural event Italian Stampede from Lamborghini Club America. The Italian Stampede event is a Lamborghini only drive to Concorso Italiano taking place the second week in August 2010.
The event will operate under the same name and will continue to take place on Thursday, August 12, 2010. However, the event is now open to ALL Italian car makes and models. i.e. Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, etc. The idea behind this is to celebrate the passion and excitement for these brands by commemorating with a drive; a back to basics drive parading to the largest Italian car meet in the world; arriving in style with 100 Italian automobiles to Concorso Italiano.
“Successful acquisitions are built upon cultural fit, the integrity of the leaders and the energy behind their combined vision; this acquisition clearly has all three,” said Gabi Mashal, President of Al & Ed’s Autosound.
Joy Loo, co-founder of Italian Stampede, was equally pleased with the Al & Ed’s Autosound acquisition. “The alignment of these two brands, their cultures, reputations and collective resources made this union very compelling. We believe the combined forces will result in great benefits for this year’s Italian Stampede and ongoing future events,” Loo stated.
“We are thrilled with the brand synergy of Al & Ed’s Autosound and the Italian Stampede. The opportunities are endless considering the depth, expertise and quality of client relationships,” said Andrew Romanowski, co-founder of Italian Stampede and President of Lamborghini Club America.
