Mahindra USA Chooses Galveston for National Dealer Meeting

Mahindra USA has chosen Galveston, Texas to host its upcoming National Dealer Meeting from January 31 to February 3, 2012. The event, which will gather 450-500 Mahindra dealers, sponsors, and staff from around North America and from as far away as Korea, Japan, India, Canada, and Germany to the Galveston Island Convention Center and The San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center, is expected to bring $1 to $2 million to the local economy. Galveston was chosen as the host city because it best represents the meeting’s theme and Mahindra’s culture of Rise.

We at Mahindra Rise through our internal culture of accepting no limits and driving positive change through alternative thinking. We also Rise through our products and services that enable people to build a better future, connect to the land and help transform lives,” said Cleo Franklin, Mahindra USA’s Vice President, Marketing and Strategic Planning. “To us, no other city better symbolizes the ‘can-do’ Mahindra attitude of Rise than Galveston.”

Joining the Mahindra dealers and staff in Galveston will be several well-known individuals who also epitomize Mahindra’s Rise culture, including:
