Ford Focus at Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival

NYC Sidewalker was selected to participate in a cool partnership with the Fordcast Tour at the Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival. We were thrilled by the opportunity to help spread the word about the Focus VIP treatment that we got to experience first hand. NYC Sidewalker also had a ticket giveaway on Twitter and our winner also got to be a Focus VIP. We had a wonderful time. The Fordcast Tour Team was not only professional but a lot of fun too.

Food Network Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival was hosted by Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah’s Resort, Showboat and Bally’s where Robert Mondavi Discover Wines Presented The Grand Market and Italian Village all weekend within several sessions. There was food, copius amounts of different wine and liquor companies. It was a large event where vendors showed, provided many tastings and sold many products. Foodies attended cooking demonstrations from wonderfully talented chefs, also proffessional wine tasting seminars gave attendees a break from all the sipping to sit and sip some more.
VIP Fordcast Lounge was the center of attention upon arriving at Bally’s Grand Ballroom. It housed many activities meant to keep... um, people's "focus". There were three stationary new 2011 Ford Focus on hand to check out up-close and personal. The Focus Titanium is the top of the line. It features MyFord Touch Technology, push button start, SYNC Voice activated communication and entertainment system, rain sensing windshield wipers, Select Shift Technology that allows you to change gears at the touch of a botton and much more.

To add to the fun, guests were treated at the VIP Fordcast Lounge to the Digital Station with the Twitter Aggregator and Related Video Content Screen where we were excited to see @NYCsidewalker tweets pop-up frequently.

There were different tables throughout the VIP Fordcast Lounge:
  • Wii Activities (Food Network: Cook or be Cooked)
  • Trivia Challenge (Food Network, Foodie, Atlantic City, Ford Focus Q&A)
  • Contest for the "Neely's Chef On Stage" tickets, $500 Gift Card Raffle, Raffle Gift Baskets, Flyers, Nap Sacks, pens giveaways.
  • Photo Booth with Dress-up chef hats, aprons and other funny playful props.

Event Highlight Video will be posted soon... yay!
