As "Official sponsor and exclusive automotive partner" for wildly popular entertainment group Cirque du Soleil, Infiniti Automotive group is effectively reaching a very broad range of possible customers. Their luxury vehicles are well known in the auto sphere, but by partnering with Cirque du Soleil, Infiniti is hoping to draw even more attention to its latest models, in a far showier space than, well, the showroom.
