The Yokohama Tire Corporation social media and digital express at the Los Angeles Auto Show is ready to roll. Using Facebook and Twitter, Yokohama will conduct contests throughout the 12-day show (November 16-27), with prizes ranging from auto show tickets to tablet computers.
“This year, we really wanted to focus on providing education about tires in an interactive, engaging manner”, said Alan Holtschneider, Yokohama manager, advertising, promotions & events. “Each day, visitors to Yokohama’s exhibit in the West Hall lobby will find a wide array of things to do while getting a chance to win some items such as Yokohama gear and the world’s most popular tablet computer.”
“We’ve created a dedicated online presence for the LA Auto Show within Yokohama’s corporate website and this will house everything from the ticket giveaway to the Twitpic Contest to ‘reports from the floor’, as well as video and photo galleries for the event,” added Theresa Palang, Yokohama manager of public relations and digital marketing.

The Official Tire of the LA Auto Show since 2006, Yokohama will feature digital and social media components such as:
Daily tablet computer giveaway:  Each day during the LA Auto Show, from November 16-27, a winner will be chosen to receive a tablet computer via a drawing from Yokohama’s Twitpic Contest.  Both consumers and media alike who are present at the show are eligible to win. To enter, visitors take their photo anywhere inside the Yokohama LA Auto Show booth and tweet their photo using special instructions provided at the booth.  Each night, a winner will be randomly selected to win a popular tablet computer. 
Hourly Yokohama gear giveaway:  Each hour during the show, from the Twitpics received, a random entry will be chosen to win a gift bag, which will include a variety of Yokohama merchandise.

Photos of all contest winners will be posted on Yokohama’s Web site on a special “Winner’s Circle” page at
