Lincoln Vancouver VIP Luncheon

I had the pleasure of going to the Lincoln Vancouver VIP Launch Luncheon with Rick Chung. They really went all out with the event invites. Lunch and wine at the Vancouver Art Gallery rooftop pavilion on a Friday afternoon? Hard to turn that down.Mission Hill WineSheryl Connelly

We heard from Sheryl Connelly, manager of Ford Global Trends and Futuring. Her job is to track consumer trends and collaborate with people throughout the Ford system to see how that information may impact future products. In essence, her job is to try to predict the future. Cool gig.

I was really expecting for them to unveil the new Lincoln MKZ Concept today. It didn’t happen. Watch for this to happen at the Vancouver International Auto Show (April 3-8, 2012 at BC Place Stadium).

Instead we got to tour the Emily Carr: New Perspectives on a Canadian Icon exhibit after lunch. All in all, not a bad way to enjoy my Friday afternoon.Emily Carr
