The Wheel Festival, an Automotive and Music Festival in Miami, Will Market to the Millennial & Gen Z Demographic Through Esports Tournament
Houston, TX – (NewMediaWire) – November 18, 2021 – D3eSports, a division of StemGen Inc., (OTC: SGNI), announced today the first team for the D3eSports Cup Championship as The Wheel Festival, an automotive and music festival geared to a Millennial and Gen Z audience that will bring car enthusiasts and music lovers together in Miami in March 2023 for a unique event.
The Wheel Festival’s participation in the D3eSports Cup Championship tournament is a marketing tool to reach their audience through esports to bring awareness to their 2023 Miami event. They also plan to evolve their association with D3eSports by developing esports drivers to eventually race in their own Wheel Festival Esports tournament to be created in 2022.
Through a partnership with The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast in the Stuart, Florida area, The Wheel Festival will use this location and their D3eSports simulator as a destination for esports drivers to qualify for the tournament.
“Having The Wheel Festival announced as our first D3eSports Cup Championship corporate team is thrilling for us,” said Simon Dawson, chief executive officer and president of StemGen. “Their festival is going to be such an exciting experience for everyone attending, and promoting it through the incredible reach of esports provides such a smart marketing opportunity to reach a huge audience of their demographic. Rick Schad is doing an incredible job putting together this event and promoting it and we are enthusiastic to be part of it.”
“We are very excited to have forged this partnership with Simon and D3eSports to promote The Wheel Festival through their esports tournament,” said Rick Schad, president, CEO, and founder of The Wheel Festival. “Involving the community with The Children’s Museum and using their location as our tryout and practice destination is part of our mission to be an integral part of the community as we try to give back, donate, educate, and help in any way we can as we grow. We will actually have one of our chosen drivers race in the tournament at this location and a second location that will be announced later.”
“We were so pleased that Rick brought this idea to us to get involved with The Wheel Festival and be part of their esports tournament with Simon and D3eSports,” said Katie Makemson, Project Manager, Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast. “Our mission is to offer children and families a place to explore and learn through hands-on, interactive activities and exhibits, so having this state-of-the-art racing simulator in our museum and drawing new people in is very exciting for us. There was so much attention when Simon and his team came to set-up the simulator and we can’t wait to see this grow as we all get started.”
