Shepparton Motor City campaign 2013

The 'Shepparton Motor City' advertising campaign aims to position Shepparton as the preferred regional Victorian city for customers to purchase all things automotive.

About the campaign

The campaign will position Shepparton as the preferred regional Victorian city for customers to purchase all things automotive.  The campaign will focus on all automotive categories including new cars, used cars, trucks, motorbikes and automotive services and accessories.

Motor City will be fronted by the popular AFL legend and television personality Dermott Brereton.  Dermott said, “Shepparton really does have all the top automotive brands people know and love. This city loves cars, trucks and motorcycles which is evident by the volume and quality of automotive services.” 

Although this campaign’s focus will be on the automotive categories, the Shepparton Show Me Committee strongly believes that the campaign will stimulate economic activity, benefiting an even wider range of Shepparton Show Me stakeholders.  

Motor City Launch

Who is the target market?
