In order to increase the sales and promote the image of their sound and navi­ga­tion systems and at the same time, strengthen the rela­tion­ship with their strategic part­ners, the Harman Inter­na­tional Auto­mo­tive Divi­sion banks on intel­li­gent coop­er­a­tion and co-marketing activ­i­ties with their auto­mo­tive key customers. Plat­forms for the joint measures are trade fairs, events, retailers and the Internet. The under­lying idea is to high­light a partic­ular strength of both the Harman Inter­na­tional Auto­mo­tive Divi­sion and the respec­tive part­nering brand, and to benefit from mutual image effects to increase the overall impact on consumers, the media and opinion leaders.

The VIP seats were exclu­sively offered to customers, jour­nal­ists, employees and media coop­er­a­tion part­ners.
