Volkswagen Digital Media Day

On Friday I attended the very first Volkswagen Digital Media Day at the Canadian International AutoShow. I have a total soft spot for the VW brand thanks to my Baby Jetta and I was very excited to learn about the 2013 lineup and other new and exciting things happening with Volkswagen. We were greeted by Peter Blackwell Director of Marketing for VW Canada and VW product Planners, ready to answer all our questions. The event was packed with exciting news about addition of new cars to the 2013 lineup, turbocharge and hybrid engines and so much more. It was exciting to be one of the first few people to see the TV commercials for the Jetta Turbocharged Hybrid.

So much more goes into building a business to make it desired… and long-lasting. It takes a creative marketing strategy to build ongoing momentum and turn a business into a demand driven machine.

I have been in my bubble in Toronto and ignored the rest of this amazing country, until now. I’ve taken a lot of roadtrips across Ontario and it is beautiful. All I see is lush green and beautiful bodies of water everywhere. I was so inspired that I decided to learn more about my country and I was SHOCKED when I realized really how little I knew. Do you know where Magdalen Islands is? Did you even know that it existed???? I just found out about it a couple of months ago! How about Fogo Island, I had no idea where that one was either! So to get to know Canada a little better I’ve done a lot of reading online and been following Canada Tourism twitter account (@Keep_exploring) and their 19 guest bloggers that are traveling across Canada. There’s so much to see, so many hidden treasures …
