TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 -- Warmotion is a travelling exposition of authentic WW1 vehicles that brings the Great War to life. This private collection of original working motorcycles, staff cars, ambulances, trucks and cook wagons from the First World War has never before been put on display for public viewing.
"The Warriors' Day Parade is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. It is the perfect day to launch Warmotion. This rare Canadian collection of vehicles and wartime stories create a living tribute to the Canadian men and women who served our country from 1914 - 1918, and also to those who serve in our military today," said Sue Schroeter, Project Manager, Warmotion.
On parade day, August 16th, Warmotion will join the Honour Section of the parade driving a 1917 Staff car, often used by Canadian and Allied forces to transport senior officers. Also chosen from the extensive Warmotion collection for this special occasion are a 1915 Douglas motorcycle with sidecar which was used for escort duty, leading convoys and providing safe transit for senior officers; and a 1917 Triumph motorcycle ridden by a dispatch rider, whose role was to deliver messages to the front. There are over twenty WW1 vehicles in the collection and it is planned to bring a larger contingent to next year's parade.
The debut of this exposition will be of interest to history and military buffs, veterans, educators, lovers of vintage vehicles, and proud Canadians alike.
Media interviews and photo opportunities are available in Gore Park, just east of the Princes' Gates at the CNE, prior to the parade from 9:30 am - 10:15 am.
About Warmotion: Warmotion, in association with the Victoria County Historical Society and the Great War Flying Museum, plan to stage larger-than-life WW1 commemorative events that entertain and engage Canadians in our country's proud military history. The events, now being planned for 2015, will have a large re-enactment and educational component. Wartime stories will be told from the standpoint of the aircraft pilots who fought for aerial supremacy; the dispatch riders who delivered secret messages by motorcycle; the vehicle operators who provided general transport to trouble spots; the women who were employed as drivers and mechanics overseas, and the thousands of Canadian women who worked in wartime factories; the nursing sisters who cared for the sick and injured; and the army cooks who fed the troops. In short, these events are a hands-on celebration of the Great War that respect and honour the Canadians that served -- both overseas and on the home front.

In today's uber-connected, consumer-centric, cloud-enabled, insights-driven, multi-device, global world, the focus of solutions has shifted from the product that is sold to the person who is buying the product or service. Enterprises have rebranded their business around the consumers of their products. The buyer is the person and the focus is not on the offering. The person is connected through multiple devices, wearables, at home, on the road, and in multiple locations, sometimes simultaneously...
