Daytona Beach FL – January 22, 2019 – The IASCA mission promoting consumer awareness continues, now placing car audio manufacturers and suppliers in front of new consumers. IASCA President and industry activist Paul Papadeas has made a great connection with the producers of the annual Jeep Beach event held at the end of every April in Daytona Beach. Jeep Beach (April 22-28, 2019) is a series of city-wide functions, lasting all week, culminating with a huge expo at the Daytona International Speedway. “The Jeep Beach producers are wonderful people with a great sense of community. Their event production carries the same sense of professionalism, commitment and responsibility as we did at SBN. When we acquired IASCA almost 20 years ago, the mission was industry proliferation,” said Papadeas. “What our industry needs, especially now, is better exposure to new consumers and marketing events like these fit the bill.”

The recent cancellation of SBN 2019 was, in part, stimulated by waning manufacturer support for the event. Let’s face facts; car audio suppliers seemingly take issue with supporting events for those who already own their car audio products. What they want to see are new faces. Developing alliances with events the likes of Jeep Beach will give just that to our industry. IASCA will produce the first ever JEEP BEATS™ Soundoff at the Jeep Beach Monday night kick-off gathering at the DME Stadium. Modified IASCA rules to suit the Jeep’s unique acoustical environment will be applied.

Over 200 vendors participating in Jeep Beach reach more than 25,000 participants in this charitable event. Jeep Beach is a 501 (c) (3) organization, which to date has donated more than 1.5 million dollars to national and local charities. “Their mission is charitable contributions,” Papadeas says, “my mission is industry proliferation and this event makes sense.”

April 16, 2019  Daytona Beach Florida – Jeep Beach is a week-long, city-wide event; the nation’s largest Jeep Only event held in Daytona Beach, this year on April 22nd - 27th. During Monday night’s kickoff “Jeep trail-gate” party, IASCA will produce the first ever Jeepcentric Soundoff and JeepGlo lighting competitions. IASCA and Soundcrafters’ principal Paul Papadeas said, “After Soundcrafters’ participation last year, we became fast friends with Jeep Beach producers Charlene and Kurt Greer. We suggested producing an IASCA competition during this, the next event, and the Greers were most excited to accommodate. Adding the car audio promotional element to the event is a natural. Jeepers (as owners are called) are most viable consumers.”

With the Soundoff held at the ESPN Rated Daytona Stadium, IASCA has modified its SQ judging rules to accommodate the Jeep’s unique acoustical environment. In the vast expanse of the stadium’s lots, a “no holds barred” audio demo area will be allowed; there are no neighbors to worry about sound issues. When night falls, IASCA will conduct a JeepGlo competition awarding trophies for best LED, Neon and any other type of interior and exterior lighting. 

On Friday and Saturday, the event opens at the Daytona International Speedway to thousands upon thousands of spectators and well over 100 vendors. “We were able to influence a few car audio brands to join the Speedway event,” Papadeas said. “JL Audio, Kenwood, Metra and Directed Electronics, among others, are on board. Soundcrafters will have a 2400 sq. ft. display booth where we’ll sell Car Audio and Accessories and perform installations right there in the NASCAR garages; it’s gonna be great!”   

Jeep Beach is a 501 (c)(3) organization and has donated more than $350,000.00 annually to local and national charities.
