Concours Village ideal location to reach auto hobbyists

MCdE_vendorsThe Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance welcomes Closet Concepts to the Concours Village. “Closet Concepts joins our impressive group of businesses and services,” said Beth Nelson, Village chair. An integral part of the Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance experience—aside from viewing the amazing vehicles that will be on the show field—is the Concours Village. “This isn’t your typical retail area. The concept is to provide a shopping experience for spectators that includes automotive-related products and services as well as art, entertainment, food and more,” said Village Chair Beth Nelson.

As spectators walk into Veterans Park they will have direct access to the top leaders in the industry. “Whether you’re looking for a new vehicle, want to find resources to help in building your dream garage, help in restoring your vehicle or just looking for that one-of-a-kind piece of art, you’ll find it here,” said Nelson.
