Thousands are anticipated to gather in Hampton Roads as the 2023 Coastal Virginia Auto Show is set to return to the Virginia Beach Convention Center for the free-to-attend event for families.
KT Automotive Products, an East Coast Automotive Distributor, has decided to sponsor celebrity Heather Storm out of the powerhouse group of celebrities that are set to appear at the event running November 17th - November 19th, 2023. Builders and enthusiasts can begin registering for the event now to secure their spot for the indoor or outdoor show. There are hundreds of vehicles and 30+ classes to participate including Best in Show, Best Display, Hot Rod, Street Rod, Pro Street, Custom Class, Modern Muscle, Resto-Mod, and so much more.
“We heard a staggering number a few months back...” started Keith Tinkham, Owner & Founder of KT Automotive “...that only 2% of women see themselves with a future in the Automotive Industry. A gut-wrenching and concerning number. Some of our most talented partners are in fact women and we hope to boost that percentage in Hampton Roads and beyond.”
The company currently sponsors numerous charity events throughout the year in Hampton Roads, helping to raise more than $830,000 at the Priority Charity Bowl, taking place at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA just a few months back, and contributes annually to the Advanced Technical Institute program for future technicians and builders.
“Such a great pairing as we bring back Heather to the show...” said Dr. Mark of 757 Auto Events “...she does a great job engaging the audience - Keith and team are excited to introduce her to little-builders and auto-leader of the future in Hampton Roads.”
Attendees will be able to gather at the KT Automotive Team’s booth throughout the event to meet with Heather and will be able to register for a VIP Experience as well.
Regional Builders will also return to the show with a Builder’s Breakfast with:
Jack French as seen on Street Outlaws, Brandon Good – Thunder Alley Hot Rods, Ryan Krause – Crucible Coachworks, Zac Love – Love Kustoms, and Bradley Gray – Blown Mafia. Other Celebrity appearances at the show include: Joe Kenda, The Homicide Hunter and American Detective, David Ankin from Toymakerz, Ron and Amy Shirley from Lizard Lick Towing, Dennis Anderson from The Gravedigger, Tom Cox from The Appraisers.
When asked about the turnout, Jeanette Robinson from Sinclair Stations stated, “We’ll have more than just Cars and Trucks out there. We’ve literally got something for everyone - motorcycles, UTVs, and everything in between.”
KT Automotive will also have a booth where attendees can stop by to learn more about the chemicals and services that go into their vehicles at the shops they trust to service their cars with Wynn’s.
The team will also be previewing a line from Entire Car Protection (ECP) called Technician’s Choice that will be available for mobile detail companies, dealerships, shops, and wholesale.
Attendees are encouraged to stop by to get a live demonstration of these products throughout the show. The Coastal Virginia Auto Show is set to take place November 15th - November 17th, 2023 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center located at 1000 19th St, Virginia Beach, VA 23451.
