A new event is set to launch in the spring of 2012 in the Houston, Texas area. The Concours d’Elegance of Texas will be held May 6, 2012 at La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa on the shores of Lake Conroe in Montgomery. The Concours will be directed by Lolly Bezy, former Executive Director of the Meadowbrook Concours d’Elegance.
“Texas is home to many of the more notable automobile collections and there has long been a need for a premier Concours event here in the state,” said Lolly Bezy, Executive Director. “We are delighted to have established long-term agreements with La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa as our host venue, and with reputed auction company, Worldwide Auctioneers, to present The Houston Classic Auction as an integral part of the weekend. We look forward to welcoming some of the world’s greatest motorcars through our gates and to fast establishing the Concours d’Elegance of Texas as one of the most significant events on the calendar.”
La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa, situated north of downtown Houston, recently underwent a $130 million expansion and renovation. “This is the perfect setting for a premier Concours,” said resort director Al Luciano. “We look forward to helping to make the Concours d’Elegance of Texas a resounding success and to welcoming Concours visitors to the shores of Lake Conroe for many years to come.”
The inaugural Concours d’Elegance of Texas is scheduled for May 6, 2012. Interested parties are invited to contact [email protected]. For information on La Torretta Resort & Spa, visit latorrettalakeresort.com.
