GPS Voice Publisher Sponsors Annual Gathering of 80's Aficionados In Las Vegas, Nevada

    BURBANK, CA, March 12, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- NavTones, the global publisher of turn-by-turn GPS voices, announces today its sponsorship of the Knight Rider Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Descending on the Fremont Street Experience in historic downtown Las Vegas on March 19th and 20th, 2010, Knight Rider Festival is a free, all-ages celebration of the show that made "The Hoff" a household name and whose talking car, KITT, became an icon and inspiration of modern technology.

More than twenty-five years after its debut on American airwaves, Knight Rider lives on as an international entertainment sensation, captivating people of all ages, with its global network of fan communities, both virtual and real world. Knight Rider Festival is more than just a meeting of casual fans. Not only is it the largest event of its kind, drawing visitors from all over the world, it is also a charity fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network. With Knight Rider having made its mark as a show about ridding the world of injustice and preserving human life, it is only fitting that the festival honoring its impact also gives back to those most in need. Donations will be accepted on site.

Visitors to Knight Rider Festival will find Fremont Street transformed in to a veritable parking lot of KITT cars from all over the United States. Kicking off the event will be the parade of VIPs in the afternoon of Friday, March 19th, where each VIP arrives at the press conference along Fremont Street in one of the fifteen KITT replicas slated to appear. Scheduled VIP guests include: Oscar Goodman (Mayor of Las Vegas), Glen A. Larson (Knight Rider Creator/Executive Producer), actresses Shawn Southwick King, Catherine Hickland, and Rebecca Holden, Michael Scheffe (KITT Designer), Stu Phillips (Composer, main theme), and custom car legend George Barris.

Following Friday's press conference, the NavTones-sponsored VIP party will take place at the Golden Nugget overlooking the festival until its close at 11pm. On Saturday, March 20th, festivities resume at 10am and include celebrity autograph, photo, and Q&A sessions on the First Street Stage and along Fremont Street until 5pm. Knight Rider Festival is produced by Paul Casey Productions.

"We are truly overjoyed to be a part of Knight Rider Festival. Like its namesake, it is a phenomenon that continues to grow while staying true to the timeless theme that one man can make a difference," says Will Andre, CEO of NavTones, adding, "And our heartfelt 'thanks' go out to the millions of fans around the world who not only make such an event possible, but also live each day knowing that being good to each other never goes out of style."
