Another year is drawing to a close, and we’re taking a look back at our 2019 highlights. From events in the sunshine, to breaking down stereotypes we’ve share some fantastic moments with our customers this year.

Here’s a round-up of our 2019 highlights of the year…

Love Stories campaign

We were feeling the love this February as we gathered stories from our customers about their love affair with their Mercedes-Benz. Hearing about the love people have for their cars, and the customer service they get from us.

We rounded up the best of high performance vehicle to offer a selection of customers an exclusive driving experience.

EQC Visit

Excitement has been building into palpable energy for the release of our new all-electric EQC. In September, we were thrilled to host a launch event at Mercedes-Benz of Exeter. Customers were given the opportunity to experience the model first hand, and to have a product walk-around from our EQC specialists.

Working with our Ambassadors

Mercedes-Benz South West is proud to partner with some of the region’s top sporting talent as our brand Ambassadors.

Exeter Chief’s player Jack Yendle worked with us for another year, delivering Rugby skills masterclasses to local primary schools and also making an appearance at our AMG Day and Open Air Cinema events.

We have also recently welcomed Somerset Cricket Captain Tom Abell to the team. Tom has recently come on board and is excited to help support our work in the Taunton Community in 2020.

Mercedes-Benz Golf Trophy National Finals

The sporting prowess also came from our customers this year. Each year the Mercedes- Benz golf trophy tees off with dealership golf trophies which then feed into a regional and national final. This year three Mercedes-Benz South West customers made it to the national final in St Andrews, and two have made it through to the International Trophy Championship in Germany in 2020. Good luck!

Open Air Cinema

Another in our year of firsts, this September we hosted our first ever Open-Air Cinema at Mercedes-Benz of Exeter. We screen family favourite, The Greatest Showman, under the stars to raise money for the stellar work done by Guide Dogs South West.

This fantastic event attracted families from across the county, and raised £300 for Guide Dogs South West.

Safe to say, it has been a year of fantastic events for Mercedes-Benz South West, and 2020 looks set to follow the same trend! Thank you to all of our customers for being part of our 2019 highlights, we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
