DREYER & REINBOLD RACING HOSTS FIRST ANNUAL PARTNER SUMMIT AT EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE AND THE WATERCOLOR INN & RESORT
Indianapolis, IN (November 8, 2010)- Although the 2010 racing season has come to an end, the off-season is well underway and turning out to be both successful and busy for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing. Next on the schedule for DRR is the inaugural Partner Summit, which will take place on Tuesday, November 9th and Wednesday, November 10th at Eglin Air Force Base and the WaterColor Inn & Resort.
The St. Joe Company, owner of the WaterColor Inn & Resort and a DRR Partner, will serve as host of the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Partner Summit. One of Florida's premier real estate development companies and most acclaimed place-makers, St. Joe will have the opportunity to showcase their resort, residential, commercial and industrial developments in northwest Florida to Partner Summit attendees over a two-day period.
"We welcome our fellow sponsors of Dreyer & Reinbold Racing and are delighted they are able to visit this unique region that we call home. We look forward to their arrival at the WaterColor Inn this week," commented St. Joe Chief Executive, Britt Greene.
Day One will take place at the spectacular Five-Star WaterColor Inn & Resort in Panama City, Florida. While Summit participants enjoy the fine dining and scenery of the WaterColor Inn & Resort, Starke Taylor, IZOD Vice President of Sponsorship and Activation, will present IZOD's 2011 marketing and activation strategy related to their entitlement partnership of the IndyCar Series. The day will conclude with a presentation by Dreyer & Reinbold Racing discussing 2011 Commercial and Technical updates, as well as introductory round-table discussions between DRR Partner representatives.
The second half of the inaugural Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Partner Summit will take place at Eglin Air Force Base. DRR Partners will have a rare opportunity to use the F-35 Strike Fighter simulator during a visit to the location of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter training site for the Marines, Navy, Air Force and eight Coalition Partners. DRR will have the No. 22 IZOD IndyCar crew on hand to demonstrate pit stops and stage friendly competitions amongst military personnel.
"We are extremely excited to have our first ever Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Partner Summit. This is a telling sign and strong reflection on how the team has grown. We are also thrilled to host the event at the WaterColor Inn & Resort, which is one of the properties of our valued Partner, The St. Joe Company. This a unique event, and we are honored to be welcomed by Eglin Air Force Base and the 33rd Fighter Wing. I would like to especially thank Colonel Hlatky for collaborative efforts with our team," commented Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Co-Owner, Robbie Buhl.
Over the last decade Dreyer & Reinbold Racing has grown not only with team Partners, but in successes as well. As a result, the primary purpose of the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing Partner Summit is to review the 2010 season and build on the accomplishments and carry that momentum into 2011.
