Late last week, Mercedes-Benz continued to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of its first motor car with a two-day event aimed at the company’s corporate customers, loyal customers and partners.
Titled “125 years of innovation fest”, the largest fleet customer gathering of the year was highlighted by an event at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon Hotel on August 19 in the exciting mood of German Oktoberfest.
The next day, Mercedes-Benz hosted the colorful summer festival with special factory tours, test-drives and passenger rides on GLKs climbing over the hill at Mercedes-Benz Vietnam factory in Ho Chi Minh City’s Go Vap district, as well as entertainment for kids and young people, Mercedes GT5 racing simulation preview for VIPs, a beauty salon for ladies and service consultancy, to highlight the impressive history of the brand together with customers.
“Mercedes-Benz has a 125 year history in the world and over 16 years in Vietnam. The three-pointed star has been associated as the symbol of success for high achievers not only in Vietnam but everywhere in the world. Our customers vary from individual young elites, successful business people, celebrities to diplomatic organisations, five-star hotels and resorts, large corporate groups in diversifying luxury business areas.
“This year on the very special celebration of our brand, we once again would like to send our sincere thanks to all Mercedes-Benz customers in Vietnam,” said Mercedes-Benz Vietnam’s chief executive officer Udo Loersch.
Particularly, the company has been offering complete packages for fleet customers and partners in line with their business requirements in terms of special pricing, finance solutions (with Techcombank), regeneration of used fleet, long-term rentals from AVIS, insurance from Liberty and service solutions.
