The regional launch of the NBN network provided Commander with an opportunity to showcase their product and services in regional towns throughout Victoria.

The campaign included local area pop up activation, TV, Radio, Press, Direct Mail and Door-to-Door sales teams. Immediate success was achieved with sales increasing 20-30% on new NBN connections.

RYOBI the major sponsor and exhibitor of Better Homes Gardens Live Event wished to engage with 20,000+ patrons and wanted all to leave with a memorable RYOBI experience and lasting emotional attachment to their brand. Our strategy was to create a RYOBI zone that had maximum impact as patrons walked into the event. We also injected new energy and fresh ideas to create an awesome RYOBI experience to LEARN, PARTICIPATE, GET FREE STUFF, WIN AND HAVE FUN! The RYOBI SHED website came to life as the event zone with live product demonstrations, hands on workshops, interactive iPad App with instant win & major sweepstakes prizes, free photos with Phil the RYOBI ONE+ Drill and Gary the RYOBI ONE+ Grinder, free RYOBI ONE+ Inflatable Hands & Show-bags. A shopping zone with never seen before RYOBI ONE+ deals and a VIP golf cart limo transfer back to your car!

Pet Pack annually exhibits at the Australian Vet Association conference, a heavy investment with a small return on their investment. “Wallop how do we leverage this opportunity to attract more people to our zone to sell more?” First step is to link your 2013 business sales and marketing strategy with the event strategy. The launch of the new Pet Pack VetLab websites and social media products and services was an exciting start. Our next task was to make the 3 x 3 stand a destination – how did it go from a 3 x 3 shell to a destination. The zone became a movie theatre with theatre drapes, popcorn machine and seating to host the invite only Pet Pack VIP seminars. Let’s target the vets early and invite them to attend the VIP seminar via personalised invitations, e-mail, direct mail and LinkedIn. Wallop then created an interactive and humorous animated movie to engage and clearly communicate the offer. The intrigue and interest before and during the conference surpassed expectations, especially the aroma of the freshly cooked popcorn and our new icon DUG!
Yarra Valley Water required an urgent solution to their problem of seeking a reliable partner to seamlessly manage and deliver their event assets to a large number of sponsored community and sporting events. Our strategy was to suggest a trial over three events to prove that our costs, management and excellence in delivery would provide the client with peace of mind and confidence that their new strategic partner would provide long term benefits. The right team was critical as the project required both event specialists and skilled tradesman. The assets included two large trailers [hydration stations] which required skilled drivers and qualified plumbers to transport, install and maintain but also have the flexibility to manage on ground event logistics and management. The three event trial was a success and so far in 2013 we have delivered over 30 events throughout Melbourne.
