NATIONAL SALUTE TO AMERICA'S HEROES PRESENTED BY HYUNDAI
On Memorial Day weekend, the National Salute to America's Heroes presented by Hyundai pays tribute, honors and celebrates the military and first responder heroes. On May 27 – 28 in Miami Beach, a patriotically infused two-day festival wrapped in a world-class Air & Sea Show will showcase the country's state-of-the-art military technology, dynamic sea events, the finest musical talent and more. In addition to being the title sponsor of the event, Hyundai will have several vehicles on display in Miami. This partnership continues Hyundai's long commitment to supporting the U.S. military and its most recent Super Bowl marketing program Operation Better.
The incredibly well-received Super Bowl spot documented several U.S. soldiers watching the Super Bowl in individual 360-immersive pods that virtually seated them in Hyundai's luxury suite at NRG stadium and culminated with a surprise family reunion. The entire experience was shot, edited and produced during the Super Bowl and ran in the commercial spot immediately following the conclusion of the game.
"We're proud to sponsor the National Salute to America's Heroes and honor everything the military does for our country," said Dean Evans, CMO, Hyundai Motor America. "Building off the better experience we provided this past Super Bowl, we are looking forward to paying tribute to our military at one of the biggest Memorial Day events in the country."
"It is thanks to the support of Hyundai that we are able to create an event that pays tribute to the men and women of our military and first responders," said Mickey Markoff, National Salute to America's Heroes president and executive producer. "Without the patriotic support of Hyundai, we would not be able to bring the largest collection of military equipment to Miami Beach and put on such a spectacular show to honor our heroes."
