Volvo Cars of North America’s (VCNA) today announced the third annual edition of a Swedish vacation contest that is designed to promote Volvo’s overseas delivery program. Along with VisitSweden, Tourism in Skåne and the West Swedish Tourist Board, a contest is being run whereby two people can win a one week vacation in West Sweden and Skåne.
“Volvo was born in West Sweden, and we are still firmly rooted in the city of Gothenburg, where most of our cars are still manufactured,” said Anders Robertson, manager of VCNA’s Overseas Delivery.
“Through the http://www.carplusvacation.com/ campaign, we give potential customers a chance to experience the place and culture where their car comes from.”
From April 1 through July 1, people are encouraged to visit the website and register for the sweepstakes. There, entrants can use the site’s trip planner to create their dream itinerary and explore all that West Sweden and Skåne have to offer. By submitting an itinerary, visitors are automatically entered into the sweepstakes. The winner will receive a one-week trip of a lifetime for two to West Sweden, complete with free airfare provided by SAS Scandinavian Airlines, accommodations, meals, activities, and the use of a Volvo car.
