Save the date on your agendas, September 17th 2017 will be the day of the first official Cars & Coffee on US soil, facing the New York skyline from across the Hudson river quite a few stunning cars will be displayed for everyone to enjoy.
Affan Akhtar and Amer Choudhry from Cars & Chai decided to join the Cars & Coffee family and be in charge of this milestone in C&C’s history.
Affan, let us ask straight out: why did you join C&C?
It was clear to us that we shared both vision and philosophy. Once we at Cars & Chai knew there could be synergy of our group with Cars & Coffee, it made perfect sense.
Have you ever been to other C&C events?
We hadn't attended the events, but saw multiple media sources that gave us a strong sense of the style and intention. Of course, being in the USA, there are multiple weekly cars and coffee type events all year round, not including concours shows but let me say, that’s a whole different thing.
You mean that Cars & Coffee events stand out from the others?
Associating yourself with like-minded people in a relaxed but sophisticated environment, that’s what C&C is all about. An environment you and your partner can enjoy whether they share the same enthusiasm for cars or not. A marriage of incredible cars, regardless of genre, chill music, light but flavorful cuisine, and incredible surroundings both in physical surroundings and the people attending.
What do you think of the C&C project and how it is developing?
The growth is plain to see with over 20 countries at last count. Within these countries, there are obviously regions that can be further penetrated, all for an excellent cause. We are in a time when car debuts are at events like these as opposed to indoor arenas, where the cars can be seen in natural light and attractive surroundings, add to that the Social media impact in increasing awareness and we have a perfect mix, heading forward.
