Following Porsche AG’s partnership announcement with Soho House & Co Inc., in Europe, Porsche Cars North America, Inc., (“PCNA”) today announced a multi-year agreement with Soho House in the U.S. Together, the two will offer Soho House members unique and inspiring experiential events at its Houses across the U.S. To mark the special collaboration, PCNA and Soho House have partnered to create memorable moments at events like South by Southwest® (SXSW®) in Austin and will host Soho House members in Chicago for music and art themed activations around Lollapalooza.
Other events have included a live musical performance at Soho Beach House in Miami last December, a celebration alongside Soho House Nashville’s Pride sponsorship, and art installations ranging from Chris Labrooy’s Surreal Swan Porsche 911 sculpture at Soho Beach House to Arthur Kar’s 968 L’ART art car at Little Beach House Malibu.

Porsche will also sponsor the Soho Awards in New York City in September and the Soho Summit in LA in November.
