COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Central Ohio Toyota Dealers announced January 6 a special promotion in which prospective car customers that test drive a Toyota vehicle at participating dealerships will receive a voucher redeemable for a pair of tickets to an upcoming Blue Jackets home game. The offer runs through the month of January. Vouchers for January and February game tickets are redeemable at the Nationwide Arena Ticket Office while supplies last.
"The Central Ohio Toyota Dealers believe their partnership with us provides a unique benefit to customers visiting their dealerships and considering a Toyota vehicle," said Cameron Scholvin, Blue Jackets Vice President of Corporate Development.
Scholvin added, "We want to ensure that Toyota is at the top of fans' shopping list when searching for a new vehicle. We are pleased to partner with Toyota to offer fans the chance to experience a Toyota vehicle and enjoy a Blue Jackets game at Nationwide Arena. This program is a great example of how we can work with our partners to activate their relationship with the Blue Jackets and help drive their business."
Last spring, the Blue Jackets and the Central Ohio Toyota Dealers announced a three-year corporate partnership that extends through the 2010-11 National Hockey League season. The partnership is highlighted by the naming rights to the Toyota Tower inside Nationwide Arena and also includes prominent signage around the upper level fascia inside the arena bowl and a pair of dasherboard advertisements.
