Lincoln has created an engaging, emotionally appealing marketing program that brings to life its 'American Luxury' positioning,” says Ian G. Beavis, chief strategy officer at AMCI Global and one of the jurors for MediaPost’s Marketing: Automotive awards. “What is unique is their ability to achieve this in both their brand and retail work, a rarity in the automotive category.”

About the New York International Automobile Show
120 years ago, a group of enthusiasts in Manhattan joined together to showcase automobiles to a growing group of consumers intrigued by the prospect of owning a 'horseless carriage' and so began a journey to what is now the New York International Auto Show and the largest area for new vehicles sales in the nation. Today, the Show is where car-buying decisions are made. In 2019, 72% of attendees said they were in the market to buy or lease a vehicle within the next 12 months, and 36% added a brand to their consideration list as a result of their visit to the Show.
The 2020 New York Auto Show runs from April 10 to 19
