BC Superweek Arouse

After a successful inaugural event last year, the PoCo Grand Prix returned last Friday filling the street of downtown Port Coquitlam with over 7,000 cyclists, sports fans, families and community members.

The positive partnership that Phoenix Truck & Crane experienced with the organizer in 2016 prompted us to get back on board and into high gear, as we signed up to host this year’s VIP Lounge. Customer service and client satisfaction are a top priority for Phoenix and the opportunity to extend our proficiency to host the VIP Lounge was a perfect fit. With a maximum tent capacity of 400 people, the VIP Lounge was a vibrant place for guests to watch the races in the prime viewing spot while being served drinks and appetizers. For six hours, we hosted our special guests and provided a place to connect with the other race sponsors, meet professional cyclists, discover Port Coquitlam’s active life style and share some laughter. There is no doubt that the Phoenix photo booth contributed in a big way to the fun and helped our guests feel welcome as soon as they walked in.

Thank you to the City of Port Coquitlam, Dominion Lending Centres, other event sponsors and volunteers for pulling this great event together, welcoming a total of 660 riders! Phoenix is proud to have been a part of this successful day, giving us the ability to demonstrate the importance of road safety – and whether you are on a bike or in a truck, Phoenix Truck & Crane is all about sharing the road and bringing safety to new heights.

If you’ve missed out on this year’s race, don’t forget to pencil in Friday, July 13 2018 and take part of next year race – it’s never too late to join the fun.
