As well, company will unveil new product line and NASCAR car sponsorship


TORONTO, ON // FEBRUARY 12, 2016 • Last year, Johnsonville Sausage made a big impression on everyone who attended the inaugural Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo Presented by Mothers.


The company was the sponsor of The Johnsonville Stage, where all of the show’s awards presentations and discussion panels took place. In addition to that, Johnsonville had a large booth adjacent to the stage, from which they distributed sausage samples, displayed Adam Martin’s NASCAR stock car and hosted celebrity guest Courtney Hansen for several autograph sessions.


Motorama returns to The International Centre March 11, 12 & 13, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport. Also returning for the second year will be The Johnsonville Stage. The location will be a constant hive of activity for all three days of the show, providing a fan-friendly platform for celebrity interviews, panel discussions, autograph sessions and award presentations.


And mere steps away from the stage, the Johnsonville Sausages booth will again be offering discount coupons and samples of the #1 sausage brand in Canada, as well as hosting ‘meet & greet’ sessions with drivers and Motorama celebrities.


“Car enthusiasts and race fans align well with Johnsonville’s target consumer. We love being part of consumers outdoor grilling experiences as they share good times with friends and family” stated Brad Martin, Managing Director Canada for Johnsonville Sausage. “A show like Motorama is a great opportunity to connect directly with race fans, sample our product and listen as they share their grilling experiences.”


With a smirk, Martin then offered a “little teaser,” revealing that the Johnsonville display at Motorama will also be the site of two unveilings. The first reveal will be the Canadian debut of a new Johnsonville product line, while the second will be plainly obvious, as Johnsonville introduces the newest entry in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series; Canada’s top stock car tour.


“We’re very proud to be a part of the Motorama show, and we’re excited to be, again this year, sponsoring The Johnsonville Stage,” concluded Martin. “There will be a lot of excitement in the air as everyone prepares for the upcoming season, and we’re very pleased to be given the opportunity to share in that excitement.”


Speaking on behalf of Motorama, Mike Galipeau said, “Johnsonville is a great supporter of Canadian motorsports and we’re honoured that they’re returning as the sponsor of The Johnsonville Stage, where so many important events will once again take place. Between the stage and the adjacent Johnsonville booth – and the ‘sampling’ and unveilings that are scheduled to take place there – Johnsonville is going ‘over and above’ to connect with Motorama showgoers.”


The schedule of events for the Johnsonville Stage – including times and participants for the celebrity Q&As, autographs sessions, media announcements, discussion panels, awards presentations and other events – will be published in the weeks leading up to the show
