Port Coquitlam businesses wanting a head start on next year’s PoCo Grand Prix can attend a sponsorship session next week.
The meeting to support the July 17, 2020 cycling race will take place next Wednesday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at The Bennett Craft & Kitchen (2099 Lougheed Hwy.).
Attendees can learn more about the event, which draws more than 10,000 visitors to downtown PoCo over the day, as well as network with city council and staff, event organizers and current sponsors such as Dominion Lending.
Clair Cameron, a professional cyclist with Instafund La Prima Racing and a past winner of the Tour de Delta, which is also in the BC Superweek series, is the guest speaker.
Sponsorship ranges from display space in the Biz Expo to exclusive naming rights. Call 604-927-5218 or visit pocograndprix.ca for more details.
The PoCo Grand Prix is in its last year of a five-year contract with the city; council has yet to discuss whether the contract with BC Superweek will be extended.
