Gulf Stream Coach Hosting 12th Annual Dealers-Only Party at RVIA Show

Thu Nov 17, 2016

For the 12th year in a row, Gulf Stream Coach is hosting an invitation-only party for its dealers and dealer-prospects at the Sports & Social Club, one of the most-popular entertainment options of “4th Street Live” in downtown Louisville. As of 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, the S&SC will be closed to the public, and open only to dealers and prospects holding invitations from Gulf Stream Coach.

“Our dealers love the Sports & Social Club because the food and beverages are great and there are plenty of ways to network with fellow dealers, catch up with friends and otherwise unwind,” Gulf Stream Coach Director of Marketing Paul Campbell says. “The Sports & Social Club has several lanes for bowling and pool tables for friendly competition, a helpful staff, an exciting atmosphere and plenty of places to relax with acquaintances and business associates.”

While the event is totally free for Gulf Stream Coach guests, attendees must have the required invitations, which are available from any Gulf Stream Coach representative in the Gulf Stream Coach Display at the Expo Center on Tuesday.

“Any Gulf Stream dealer or prospect interested in attending can have an invitation just for the asking when they visit our display,” Campbell says.

“We’re looking forward to the enhanced after-hours agenda planned for the Louisville show this year and we think our annual event fits right in," Campbell says. "'4th Street Live' is the place to be for after-hours fun during the RVIA Show and the Sports & Social Club is at the center of all the action. That’s why our dealers love it and why we go back year after year.”
