First view of Firestone Destination Winter
Bridgestone shares the stand with Firestone: a key mid-segment player now bouncing back in Europe under Bridgestone’s multi-brand strategy.
This Firestone revival gets extra lift with the launch of the Destination Winter, first seen here in Geneva.
Firestone Destination HP has carved out a distinctive position with drivers of medium- and smallsized SUVs. Destination Winter carries this through to the cold season, offering top snow control and best-in-market EU label B rating for wet grip. Also on show is Firestone Multiseason, an innovative solution for milder European winters where cold spells can suddenly surprise us.
Adding glitter and colour to the stand is the Firestone Music Tour , showing visitors how Firestone reaches out to its core target audience with an innovative sponsoring programme at major music festivals across Europe.
