"The Getaway Show is the premier outdoor lifestyle and adventure experience in the country and Mercedes-Benz Vans is proud to be associated with such a prestigious event. For vehicles such as the exemplary people mover Mercedes-Benz Vito Shuttle, the utilitarian Vito CrewCab Sport and the unmatched Sprinter, the partnership is a perfect match for both brands and the models on show are renowned for long-standing customer dedication and a commitment to the great outdoors," says Nicolette Lambrechts, Vice-President: Mercedes-Benz Vans South-Africa.

"Those who purchase Mercedes-Benz vans are well acquainted with exotic travel destinations, varying types of accommodation, outdoor gear, off-road products, vehicle accessories, motor homes, camping equipment and caravans and trailers. There is therefore no doubt that the Getaway Show is the ideal place for these vans to be showcased as they are at home in all of these applications. This fits impeccably with the Mercedes-Benz Vans brand claim: Born to run," adds Lambrechts.

Mercedes-Benz Vans has been a headline sponsor for the Getaway Show since 2013 and is looking forward to yet another year of partnership, both for the show in March in the Western Cape and the Johannesburg offering, which is taking place later in the year (28-30 August) at the Coca-Cola Dome.

For the Getaway Show happening in March, all Mercedes-Benz key holders are entitled to a free entry. All these drivers have to do in order to qualify for the free entry is to present their Mercedes-Benz key to the cashier, and they will be issued with one free ticket. For all other show entrants, tickets are available at R70 per adult, R40 per pensioner/ student and children under 12 years of age get free entry into the show.

"The Getaway Show is an important date on the outdoor calendar in South Africa and as Mercedes-Benz Vans, we are thrilled to show just how harmonious our vehicles fit into the setting for customers who thrive in the great outdoors," concludes Lambrechts.
