Press Release–Daytona Beach FL –IASCA, a car audio competition organization, announced that it will stage a competition here April 22-28 in conjunction with the annual Jeep Beach event.
IASCA will produce the first ever JEEP BEATS™ Soundoff at the Jeep Beach Monday night kick-off gathering at the DME Stadium. Modified IASCA rules to suit the Jeep’s unique acoustical environment will be applied.
Jeep Beach hosts a series of city-wide functions throughout the week culminating in a huge expo at the Daytona International Speedway.
“The Jeep Beach producers are wonderful people with a great sense of community. Their event production carries the same sense of professionalism, commitment and responsibility as we did at SBN. When we acquired IASCA almost 20 years ago, the mission was industry proliferation,” said IASCA President Paul Papadeas. “What our industry needs, especially now, is better exposure to new consumers and marketing events like these fit the bill.”
The recent cancellation of Spring Break Nationals (SBN) was due in part to waning manufacturer support for the event, he said. “Let’s face facts; car audio suppliers seemingly take issue with supporting events for those who already own their car audio products. What they want to see are new faces. Developing alliances with events the likes of Jeep Beach will give just that to our industry.”
Over 200 vendors at Jeep Beach reach more than 25,000 participants in this charitable event. Jeep Beach is a 501 (c) (3) organization, which to date has donated more than 1.5 million dollars to national and local charities. “Their mission is charitable contributions,” Papadeas said. “My mission is industry proliferation and this event makes sense.”
