Best Event Awards, 10 years of events The award organized by ADC Group blows out ten birthday candles: born in 2004, during the first two years it was accessible to Italian structures only; subsequently, starting from 2006, it gathered applications and positive feedback from all over Europe and splitted into two versions. This eighth edition of EuBEA has 104 nominations, entered by event agencies and companies from 17 countries. An excellent result, that means that the European Best Events Awards is appreciated and recognised around Europe as the reference point for the events’industry. To compete for the Little Golden Elephant, the symbol of excellence, 63 agencies. Events were evaluated, one by one, by a jury made up of 24 representatives, holding different roles in the European event industry, headed by Michael Mueller, campaign manager corporate marketing Samsung. A first selection was made online by each juror. 60

shortlisted projects were subsequently voted during the plenary session, extraordinarily convened in Malta on October. The jury awarded the first three prizes and, in addition, categories and technical excellence prizes. On November the 26th, the best European events will be revealed, and a series of awards will be delivered to the events considered as the best of each category among the shortlisted events. This third edition of European Event Annual represents a showcase of all the projects that competed for the European Bea 2013 podium.

SurPRising inside the box Objective: more and more often companies have smaller budgets and goals they want to reach through an event. They want content instead of just the ‘funfactor’. We want to show that Arjan van Dijk knows how to organise an inspiring event, that doesn’t have to be over the top. Our goal is to get new leads. Creative idea and description: Arjan van Dijk understands that the sky is no longer the limit, takes these restrictions for granted and makes sure to surprise relations with our magical mix of in house disciplines: decor and styling, catering, entertainment, organisation. Potential business relations has invited to (re)experience Arjan van Dijk. The theme is ‘SuPRisING inside the box’: a surprising and inspiring evening, with a spring touch. The host, Mr. Spring, is a stylish, futuristic man, dressed in white with a big hat. Our guests start in a central area. After the opening they participate in workshops, to inspire them how to organise a good event and for example how to get better results with invitation tactics. After that they can discover the different areas of the event location, within every room a completely different sphere and theme, implemented in decoration and styling, culinary an entertainment. Media Mix: website, e-mails, direct mailings with a pop up white box, Facebook, Exhibition participation (the booth was a big white box, with just a question mark on top). A security guard made sure only visitors entered who had an invitation card. Inside the box Mr Spring surprised everybody. The booth was the

talk of the exhibition. Phone calls, invitations by suppliers. No show reduction: e-mail and a sms alert shortly before the start of the event. Staging and set design: the guests entered the event location through a big white box with a question mark on it. In the central area they entered an autumn atmosphere. Slowly the seasons changed into winter and spring. Even the clothes of the serving staff changes every season. After the opening show, described in the audio mix box, people followed their workshop leaders. During round table sessions and group discussion in the cosy areas they got inspired, what continued during their discovery of the other chambers. Results: the survey by phone afterwards resulted in the guests: Rating the evening a 7,8; surprised and/or inspired 76%, 90% put Arjan van Dijk on their shortlist; the Net Promotor Score is 18,9. Shortly after the event the account managers made about 16 concrete appointments.

Samsung Roadshow 2013 Objective: to unite the ever-expanding range and give visitors a real sense of discovery about the new product and technological advances being put on show, as well as the new Samsung brand ideal. Creative idea and description: showcasing latest products, design and technology across all categories from items as small as a micro memory card, up to an 85” UHD-TV in an exhibition space ranging 4,000-6,000m2. The message of discovery was key. The ‘Hub’ has been positioned at the centre of each site. Two perforated walls create a room visible from all areas of the show. Inside, the latest technological advances from each category were placed to be experienced in relation to each other, linking the category zones to create a sense of technological discovery. The identity was inspired by the shape of the ‘Hub’ and the tagline, ‘Mehr Moglich Machen’-‘Make More Possible’. Taking product silhouettes, a repeatable pattern has been fret-cut into the ‘Hub’ walls, together with the fret-cut statement: Innovation, Inspiration, Emotion. The fret-cut technique worked to keep the discovery theme of the show integrated with the main feature. Media Mix: a 5-step invitation mailing process; newsletter marketing; special interest magazine ads; social media announcements on Samsung’s own and partner channels; videos on social media sites and the microsite; PR round tables and workshops; dealer and employee training; guided tours for visitors; site events (sneak preview and PR events); speeches; award ceremony; crew party; integration of sponsorship projects i.e. FC Bayern Munich and BMW

Motorsport; giveaways, including carrier bags and welcome packs. Staging and set design: the setup involved 24x 40t trucks and sites ranging from 4,000-6,000m². An efficient logistics and design concept enabled the movement of the show in short time slots e.g. 1 day. Intimate experiences and high-impact areas like the central ‘Hub’ could be assembled using the same components. Focus areas, including training rooms and the built-in kitchen area, invited visitors to experience the products. Simple, large-scale furniture and navigation brought clarity and unity to the brand and products. Results: most successful show to date in regards to visitor numbers, orders and clippings generated. The event has reinforced Samsung’s market position in Germany. All targets have been outreached. The very positive ROI has raised the bar and expectations for next year’s show.

Representatives of the company were transported to the event by boat - the same way is popular on Seina in Paris too. The boat was afterwards at the disposal for guests for boat rides with the amazing view on Prague Castle. The program was based on typical French elements like cancan, petanque, artistic show - creation of an ice sculpture, presentation of molecular cousine, carving etc. The guests enjoyed also an original photo studio and everyone of them had as an unique memory an own period portrait with a logo of the event - (long-term event´s impact). The highlight was a performance of French chanson singer and winning lucky-dip with a main prize scooter Peugeot.

Media Mix: a creative invitation letter (in a French style, the part of the envelope with invitation was a real boa - feather - symbol of ‘Moulin Rouge’) has been sent to the database of invited guests followed by participation check. Presents for guests on the end: the greatest success got branded czech spa wafers with Sodexo embossed relief. Staging and set design: composition of the event was divided into 3 parts: interior of a luxury club, outdoor terrace and spaces for games /petanque/ and space for floating boats. There were refreshments served on all the spots, outdoor terrace was used for open grills, the artistic program and the degustation of gastronomic specialities took place inside. There was a rest-zone in a quiet part of the club. The interior was a duplex. Results: Sodexo was very satisfied. Thanks to original invitation + smart concept there was almost 100% participation of invited guests. 80% stayed till the end, proof of the event´s attractiveness. Following ‘Thank you’ letters from significant participants confirmed the total excellent impression.

Investment Aktuell 2013 ‘Change as a chance’ Objective: given to the current difficult situation on the capital markets, Union Investment (UI) was particularly eager to thank the attendees for their loyalty while also infusing the event with impulses to create incentives to jointly master future challenges. Creative idea and description: the motto of the event was a natural fit: ‘Change as a chance’, The chosen event venue was the classicist hall at the Gesellschaftshaus Palmengarten. During the convention, the contrasts between the historical ambiance and the modern, future oriented presentation were already artfully dissolved. During the gala evening, guests were subsequently offered a surprisingly new perspective. To achieve this, the agency used an approach that is entirely familiar to humans everywhere as it is a natural instinct: the glance out of windows. Gigantic projections were displayed across the entire window façade of the hall to give the audience a view of the world going through constant changes. Images are accompanied by a soundtrack of change. Unfettered from the room’s reality, guests will reach all points of the earth almost as if in a state of zero gravity. A magician´s blue balloon is the focal point for the voyage as well as the symbol embodying UI’s vision. The magic of the evening is thus symbolically carried into the world from the venue and back. At the end of the evening, the guests sensed that change does not have to

cause fear or translate into hurdles. Those who are willing to embrace change and movement frequently recognize new opportunities and embark into the future on the wings of optimism. Staging and set design: one of the prerequisites for the technical event set-up was a special permit from the Botanical Gardens for the proper installation of our projectors for the rear projection of sub-segments alongside the entire window façade of the Palmengarten. More than 180 individual streams were composed to create a 5-hour animated tour of the world. Results: Hans Joachim Reinke, UI’s Chief Executive Officer said after the event: “The stage for the topic was set perfectly and even exceeded our high expectations. The enthusiastic reviews of our guests speak for themselves…”. In the guest survey, the production received the perfect score of 1.0.

Siemens Tia Portal launch event Objective: the clients of automation products are end customers and engineers, operators and the decision making unit/technical management. Therefore we had to show both perspectives during the launch events - operator’s and management’s point of view. Creative idea and description: emotional storytelling embedded in an elaborate overall dramaturgy. The new dimension of Siemens’ automation technique can be experienced through media and spatial design. The centerpiece of the launch event is a 30-minute 3D movie. The storyline shows the product features form the operator’s point of view. The arc of suspense picks up real customers’ requests, makes actors dive in a virtual world in which they - together with the audience - can experience the main benefits of the new dimension. The Tia Portal becomes the main product and the central element, which can control and optimize all company, machine and process activities by using the intuitive graphical interface.

EuroTraining 2012 Inspired for a new generation Objective: to expand later sales as well as transfer of knowledge of the sales organisations’ further current topics such as ‘advantage argumentation’ as regards competition, assistant systems and product highlights of other construction groups etc. Creative idea and description: with an emotional brand experience and a parallel transfer of knowledge, Daimler AG qualifies its sales team for the new A-class and five more products. The event is didactically and architecturally structured like a city trip and seizes communication for the new A-class´ market introduction.

Under enormous pressure Objective: since this product was technologically state of the art the event needed to set a benchmark with regard to the launch of industrial goods. Also, understanding the features of this new press and its possible applications to one’s own business was key. Creative idea and description: BtoB events in the industrial goods industry in Germany have always been very ‘German’: focused on facts. Not many concepts involved emotions. The transfer press by market leader Schuler does not look like a conventional machine anymore. It has been styled to communicate its state of the art technology. We decided the event had to stage the machine accordingly. We started by pimping up the production floor. Partitions created distinctive rooms for the 4 phases of the event. We did not hide the down to earth look of the plant. On the contrary – we played with it. 36 feet wide Leds illuminated the plant in a fancy way. Cardboard boxes served as branded seats enabling 300 visitors to witness the reveal. The press was covered since its look was a real surprise. After speeches by the directors the drapery was lifted in darkness revealing only the shape of the press. Projection mapping brought the press to life. Optical illusions with emotional music completed the sensual experience. Media Mix: the guests were invited personally by the sales people of the client to emphasize the importance of the event. Staging and set design: the production floor looked like any production floor. Rough, oily, cluttered. Not pretty, not modern. The agency decided to work with

this fact and integrate it into the concept. Emphasizing instead of hiding. Tools for example have a certain charm if illuminated properly. Modern Leds helped to lighten the room in a very modern way. Gauze fabric was used to divide the production floor in different sections for the 4 phases of the event. Guests enjoyed ‘seeing the production floor with different eyes’. Results: the discussions between Schuler personnel and guests that evening showed a deep understanding of the new positioning and the features of the machine. The image of Schuler had in fact been altered. The buying process for this kind of machinery takes about 18 months - so no financial results yet.

Lamborghini Aventador Product Launch Objective: how to unveil the quintessential jet set super sports car to the world? How to attract and capture the attention of the press, potential customers and the general public? With a bang - the fastest city takeover ever. From parading on Ocean Drive to drag racing a Boeing triple 7 at Miami Int Airport. Creative idea and description: a Lamborghini does not just arrive, it takes over. A Lamborghini is much more than a car to drive, it’s a car to be seen in. It’s a car you don’t just own, it’s a car you share. This launch would take place in real life, full of raw passion and lust for life. Miami - a world Premiere on ocean drive. An exclusive highspeed duel on an Int. Airport. A celebrity Testdrive-Parade through the city. An unexpected Pop Up Store in the high-class shopping District. The fastest City Takeover ever! Not many cities would close off streets and allocate police escorts to accommodate 24 fire spitting Lamborghinis roaming their streets. Miami not only did that but also allowed us to drag race a Boeing triple 7 at the Int. Airport. Next to the parade through the city as a way to involve the general public, we also had the official unveiling in public on Ocean road. And to satisfy the desire for Lamborghini apparel after being exposed to the brand, we opened a pop-up store. Results: more than 120 Lamborghini Aventador on the cover of the int. press. The event generated many column inches of free publicity. Not just about the

launch of a new Lamborghini but also covering the novel way of including the public in the event. Search ‘Lamborghini Miami’ on Facebook and you’ll see.

Shell Retailer Engagement Day 2013 Objective: the concept responded to the client’s specific request to provide a medium that offers guests a true experience. That combination of interactive meeting, theme worlds featuring productions boasting rich facets and an evening gala that honours award recipients in an exclusive setting translated into an annual kick-off event that can easily be distinguished from typical conferences. Creative idea and description: an interactive, transformable design for an annual kick-off event that allowed guests to experience an exclusive Formula 1 world. The space becomes the brand: Based on Shell’s direct association with motorsports, the conference arena transformed into a race circuit in the shape of Shell’s logo. A lively interaction was established between the company and its partners through a multifaceted show on three stages surrounding an audience sitting in 1400 swivel chairs. A contemporary format should offer a unique experience with a high level of brand identification involving the partners directly - making them not only participants but actors of the staging. This transforming space placed the guests into the middle of communication - a dynamic and integrative 360° production.

Staging and set design: surprising & involving - the transfer of the Formula 1 concept to an actual race circuit was obvious - yet, it was certainly surprising when presented in the form of the company’s logo. Creating the seashell logo on the ground provided the framework for the entire event. The 1400 swivel chairs were also set up following the seashell formation. Three different stages surrounded the seashell set-up and provided space for diverse productions featuring the conference content. Results: Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH: “The team came up with a creative concept for our company that ensures that our annual kick-off event is celebrated as the absolute highlight of the year and as a result, our partners do identify with our brand with maximum conviction”.

Grande Arraial Yorn Objective: Lisbon’s biggest popular party is held on Santo António Day. It’s kind of Lisbon’s version of the Brazilian Carnival. The city dresses up for a celebration of pop culture with different parties in the different neighborhoods. Yorn wanted to be in the center of Lisbon’s celebration, being the most talked about and shared brand. Creative idea and description: the agency created an event in Lisbon’s most typical neighborhood, Alfama (also the center of Santo António Day Celebration). ‘Grande Arraial Yorn’ had everything you would expect in a Santo António Party: sardines, traditional barbecue, traditional games like arm wrestling, table football, amongst others. It was already a party. A huge one. But the agency made it bigger with DJ Toni, a Portuguese trio that mixes popular Portuguese music with electronic beats and one of the biggest Portuguese pop music artists, Ana Malhoa, who had never played Lisbon (her hometown). The event was promoted through short videos online, where Ana Malhoa invited everyone in different and unexpected situations.

All in all, we really captured the essence of Portuguese pop culture and provided the best of all Lisbon’s parties on Santo António Day, being talked on media. It was a party to remember. Media Mix: web. Results: more than 20,000 people watched Ana Malhoa Show. More than 50 magazine articles referring to Grande Arraial Yorn And another party in Porto, because of this successful event.

100 Years Fresenius Objective: ’100 Years Forward Thinking Healthcare’ is the theme of the global anniversary celebrations with the ceremony as a prelude. The goal is to leave an emotional impression on the event-experienced audience and pay tribute to Fresenius, its history, and the work it does today. Creative Idea and description: for the past 100 years, all the activities of Fresenius have revolved around people and their health. The great achievements of the company, its innovative strength, and the actual meaning of this strength to individual human destiny form the arc of suspense at the ceremony. This is created using a highly innovative media production and deeper insight into individual human destinies. Virtual medical worlds - told using extensive emotional images - converge with authentic life stories portrayed in documentary form by people. To begin with, an audiovisual composition takes guests on a journey through the history of medicine - from the emergence of the medical perspective across today’s issues of global care straight into the health challenges of tomorrow. Four documentary films tell of people who are given a new lease of life by Fresenius. The exchange with the protagonists on stage familiarizes guests with how the four divisions operate around the world. Media Mix: all the media elements of the ceremony are included in the overarching anniversary communication. On the Fresenius website, the viewer embarks on the same media-based journey through the history of medicine. The documentation communicates the work of the four divisions around

the world via social media, the company’s online career portal, and within the framework of internal communication. Starting-point for designing any media for the ceremony is an anniversary chronicle in book form. Staging and set design: a seven-meter high ellipse in the center of the hall forms the space for the dinner with a 360° projection horizon for the media content. The configuration of space represents the global dimension of the company while ensuring an intense closeness between the guests in the hall. Results: standing ovations by the guests and numerous personal thank you letters from relevant individuals after the event show respect for the company, its employees and the services provided, and bear witness to a successful event.

‘Night of Magic Heads’ 2013 Objective: the NMA is considered one of the most coveted awards by Germany’s digital advertising industry. In recent years the perceived highlight was the after show party. Now InteractiveMedia wanted a new agency to come up with a concept that places more emphasis on the actual awards ceremony. Creative idea and description: The ‘Book of Magic Heads’ - a perfect and fitting homage to the magic creative heads conjure up. A giant pop-up book became the one-of-a-kind backdrop for the awards ceremony. We created a unique fold-up motif for each category, which made humorous references to the magic the head behind the story created. Every award winner was surprised with a new lovingly created page of the book paired with a song that accompanied his or her appearance, which served as the vehicle to transport the exact emotion each discipline specifically evokes. As a result, we created a unique, absolutely one-of-a-kind moment. Moreover, the frequent setting changes grabbed and retained the audience’s attention unlike in typical award ceremonies where boredom soon sets in. In fact, both, the guests and the nominees were feverishly waiting for each new motif. Enthrallment all the way through also meant maximum reverence for the honorees. Media Mix: Twitter generated high involvement and feedback rates from the guests. During the event alone, 88 tweets were recorded, which included explicit praise for the awards ceremony, e.g.: “Great idea, by the way. An interactive book in xxl; hats off.” In the post event guest survey 92% of the

respondents expressed praise for the production (42% in the year prior). The duration of the awards ceremony and the quality of the media utilized generated a satisfaction level of more than 92%. During the open interviews, only positive statements were heard, e.g.: ‘Telling the story through the book - simply perfect.”; “In my eyes the stage production and the category trailers were the highlights’; ‘The event has taken a giant leap forward’. Results: “This was the best NMA ever. Next year, I’ll come to see whether anyone can top this production”, a guest said. InteractiveMedia’s Marketing Manager said: “… we are very pleased that your strong idea was ultimately also perfectly implemented. We will be happy to once again entrust you with the 18th NMA ”.

De past two years (inter)national street theatre groups have filled the show.

Their performance on the Dam Square in Amsterdam was fairylike and led up to a spectacular chandelier of people including a violist on a bicycle, hanging in the air above the audience (Amsterdam, city of bicycles). Because the entire act took place in the air, the audience view was automatically pointed towards the Bijenkorf where an opera singer was revealed singing a beautiful classical piece. Her last notes were the starting signal for an impressive fireworks show above the monumental building of the Bijenkorf. When the show ended 1 million moving led lights lighted up the building of the premium department store.

The Dam, the most beautiful and renowned square in Amsterdam, formed the décor for this event. The characteristic buildings, including the Royal Palace as eye catcher, all had a role during the show, as the shadows of the show lights beamed upon them. The final firework show lights on the building pointed the view towards de Bijenkorf making it clear to the audience who was sending the message. Results: the first hour after show, de Bijenkorf welcomed 7,000 shoppers as apposed to 2,000 on a normal Thursday evening. The show was broadcasted on UPC channel and debijenkorf.nl.

Investment Aktuell 2013 ‘Change as a chance’ Objective: given to the current difficult situation on the capital markets, Union Investment (UI) was particularly eager to thank the attendees for their loyalty while also infusing the event with impulses to create incentives to jointly master future challenges. Creative idea and description: the motto of the event was a natural fit: ‘The Opportunities of Change’. The chosen event venue is the luxurious Gesellschaftshaus Palmengarten, which has been renovated many times, but has not been redesigned because the building is on the National Register of Historical Places. In this environment, which tends to focus on the past, the goal was for participants to experience that everything always moves forward. During the gala evening we took advantage of something people are extremely familiar with - a natural instinct - the one that encourages us to look out of windows. It allows us to think unfettered thoughts, to take imaginary journeys thanks to the images we see while also turning inside in deep contemplation. When the guests entered the room, they appeared to see the Palmengarten as they had during the day. However, this perspective changed promptly. A magician welcomed his audience with a trick; his blue balloon disappeared from the room. It moved outside - in front of the windows. Suddenly Vienna, the classic metropolis, appeared, an unusual quartet played Mozart in the same enchanting manner as the world outside presented its images… Gigantic projections were

displayed across the entire window façade of the hall to give the audience a view of the world going through constant changes. Impressions altered at high speeds. At one moment ‘A Little Night Music’ sounded just like in a Vienna Salon and next it turned into a country western parody only to finish with Andalusian flamenco attitudes. Things kept changing, moving and regrouping. In the end, the magician pulled the blue balloon back into the room. The guests sensed that change does not have to cause fear or translate into hurdles. Those who are willing to embrace movement and new opportunities will travel into the future on the wings of optimism and creativity. It was evident that Union Investment is focused on the ever-changing world and therefore ready to identify new opportunities and to be a partner its guests can rely on.

The Adventure of Innovation Objective: the event was framed within the concept of ‘Cultural Engineering’ developed by ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño,which consists of placing value on cultural heritage of a singular place using the most advanced technology, within a concept of viability and sustainable development. Creative idea and description: the façade of the City Hall was converted into a window opened to its history and Christmas traditions. Titled The Adventure of Innovation, the show is dedicated to the talent and innovation that have been a part of the city for centuries and the door to a future in evolution making people’s lives easier. The story traces a visual map that brings together fields such as astronomy, navigation and technology… and that converges in a digital world where all is connected. A section dedicated to Christmas, which includes the simulation of a snowfall in the square and high-impact visual effects, are a crowning finish to the event. Thanks to the technique of mapping and resources such as artificial snow, a sensory show was created that was seen by 700,000 people during 26 days. Undertaken for a second consecutive year, ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño, introduced an important novelty: to make a carbon neutral event, so that all of the emissions associated with the event were

offset with clean energy projects. Media Mix: regional and national media. Live broadcast from TVs and radios. 766,000 tweets for #mappingsevilla in Twitter. 53,780 people have seen the publications in Facebook about the show. 80,000 people have seen the video on YouTube and Vimeo. Staging and set design: the audiovisual production integrating effects in 4D, a careful script and soundtrack created ex profeso, as well as the artificial snow place the proper value on the history and culture of the city. Mapping is usually used on flat façades or with few adornments.

Audi TE Family Day 2012 Objective: to give all employees of Audi AG’s Technology Development department and up to six members of their families an unforgettable day at their two respective locations. In addition to reinforcing the sense of community and having fun, the aim was to have employees actively participate in planning the day. Creative idea and description: idea employees of the Technical Development department design their event. The agency and the core Orga team of Audi TE provided the framework, the 12 departments determined the content! The work areas in the Technical Development department are so complex that a layperson would not be able to adequately prepare the content for the target group - in this case, children, grandmas/grandpas, etc. Thus the idea encompasses the opportunity to generate truly innovative, original interactions and to plan an event that is 100% relevant to the company. Implementation And the idea becomes reality: 31,000 visitors enjoyed a very special TE Family Day at the two locations - a day which was 100% ‘user-generated’. A total of over 500 (inter)actions, including a spectacular light and music production in the ‘Ice Room’ and live ski jumping performances in the ‘Wind Tunnel’, paired with a corresponding stage program and many live shows from among the company’s own ranks, made for a unique event. Media Mix: the various media elements of live communication were fully utilized. The media linking of the two locations by means of live broadcast was

an important component of the event. The social media, such as the Audi Intranet ‘mynet’, also played an important role as a central communication platform. There were many interactions on the event day itself, which in turn corresponded with social media. Staging and set design: the entire technical development area at both locations was turned into a giant exhibition area with a stage, interactions and food stands for Family Day. Complex participant management was needed in order to make this possible and to make a ‘high security area’ accessible to over 31,000 visitors. To this end, all regular Audi employee ID badges were temporarily deactivated and every accredited guest received his or her personalized admission ticket in advance. Results: the quantity and intensity of the feedback proves that both the idea as well as its implementation were a success. Almost all participants expressed their enthusiasm about the TE Family Day in letters or verbally.

Football Stands up against Cancer Objective: to create and broadening the annual recruitment for the campaign ‘Stand up Against Cancer’. An event that gives the existing campaign an extra boost and reaches out to new potential target groups. Creative idea and description: in order to stand up, one must be sitting first. This was the starting point during the first brainstorm session. A football stadium is a place where numerous people sit, as do many viewers at home who watch the game on Tv. Choosing this setting opened the opportunity to activate a totally new target group, which was one of the objectives for this event. The Dutch football association participated using its ‘social responsibility foundation’ (Meer dan Voetbal) to create more support and awareness. The concept was simple but effective: 231,905 supporters standing up against cancer together 36 football clubs, 18 football stadiums, 18 local heroes standing on the centre spot; 2 days; 1 good and simple cause - Stand up against Cancer. The local heroes, like Olympic Champion and cancer survivor Maarten van de Weijden, evoked the awareness that 1 of 3 people develop cancer. This would mean that, after looking at the people sitting left and right from you, one of you would have to fight it. Media Mix: all 36 football clubs embraced the concept and came up with individual activities to evoke awareness for the event and campaign (newsletters, business-events for sponsors and articles on club websites). KWF partners announced the event on their websites and encouraged their network to participate. Ex national goal keeper Hans van

Breukelen, who lost his wife to cancer, agreed to be ambassador. De Telegraaf (leading newspaper) published a page long interview with him a day before the event. Staging and set design: the stadiums were the stage for this event. By placing a local hero on the center spot of the field with nothing but a microphone and a motivating story, the message was able to move people and activate them to symbolically stand up and show the nation there support for this cause. Results: 200,000 supporters in 18 stadiums stood up. 36 teams (incl. staff) stood up. 140 new volunteers signed up. € 50,000 was generated from donations and activities organised by clubs. Tv programs reached over 4,5 mil. viewers. Total media result worth over € 500,000 (television, radio, print and online).

City’, however, is strong enough to build the foundation for all pre and post communication in the Chinese market.

Creative idea and description: Fieldwork decided that a good way to tell the people living in Stavanger about the new Nespresso Boutique was to ask them help the agency out with the actual opening. They knew that they would need baristas, hostesses, musicians, a dj, technicians, chefs and so on, so they went out in the city and started to ask people to engage themselves. The agency launched a campaign to find the 16 hostesses that would represent the different Nespresso Grand Crus and their colors. 5,000 girls was contacted personally by Nespresso crew and invited to an audition. Fieldwork also contacted and visited 50 restaurants in Stavanger, amongst them several run by well known Bocuse d`Or medalists, to find chefs that would help them make the most delicious local food. They contacted cafes to get in touch with baristas that could help them teach others to make the perfect cup of espresso coffee with Nespresso, and visited bars late at night to find musicians and asked them all to help them out. And the people of Stavanger did.

Media Mix: personal invitations, social media, print (flyers, posters etc), web (invitations, info) and PR (press release and invitations to retail journalist and bloggers). Staging and set design: the first Nespresso Boutique to be opened in a old wooden house so all the Nespresso interior had to be custom made. At the actual opening the lightning and the temporary deco, etc. was adapted to give the old house full respect. Results: the engaging campaign created a lot of publicity in the media. The viral effect and the positive word of mouth was huge. In addition to the press releases this led to the most successful opening of an Nespresso Boutique in Norway. Nespresso connected to the people in Stavanger who endorsed the new boutique both in helping them with the actual opening and later on by turning out to be trustful regular customers in the new Nespresso Boutique. After the event there has been an huge increase of Nespresso Club members in the Stavanger region and the region is topping the national statistic of coffee drinking happy Norwegians.

Olympus OM-D: Photography Playground Objective: to mobilize and motivate the Creative Class and the photography buffs to systematically try out the Olympus OM-D on their own, to experiment with it and feel its emotional impact. Creative idea and description: to make the Creative Class want to experience the Olympus OM-D, it has been developed a presentation that was unique, innovative and creative, just like the camera itself. Under the motto of ‘Create your own world’, 12 international artists turned an area of 7,000 m² at the old opera workshops in Berlin Mitte into a fascinating experiment: an interactive exhibition on the subject of ‘Space and Art’. It was a Photography Playground of the senses, an experiment involving realities, observation and their representation. Those who wanted to experience it used an Olympus OM-D that was provided free of charge. They were able to discover space and art as well as the individual camera features. Every room invited them to experiment with a different property of the camera, giving free rein to their creativity. Many different touch points were used to fully exhaust the underlying idea. They were coordinated and conceptually interlinked. As a result, each element triggered another one - to great success. Media Mix: the media mix was spread over four marketing areas: live, PR, online, and classic. A prior teaser campaign with guerilla activities, radio co-ops, ads, online banner, and posters called attention to the core of the campaign, the Photography Playground. In addition, there

were events, workshops, and promotions. PR consisted of press mailings and events. Online marketing employed a campaign microsite, a facebook app, and blogs. Classic advertising rounded things off with an adv visual. Staging and set design: the design of the Photography Playground reflected the reduced retro design of the Olympus OM-D. The shapes were compact cubes, deliberately subdued to leave room for the artistic installations and the viewers’ creativity. The rough industrial charm and the creative atmosphere of the opera workshops were used to underline the superior quality of the OM-D by way of classy looking materials. Ultimately the installations, the location, and the architecture were conducive to taking photographs. Results: the targets were met with 55,000 clicks & tries, 24,000 facebook fans, 21,6 million pictures shot with the Olympus OM-D, and a solid sales boost.

Lamborghini Aventador Product Launch Objective: how to unveil the quintessential jet set super sports car to the world? How to attract and capture the attention of the press, potential customers and the general public? With a bang - the fastest city takeover ever. From parading on Ocean Drive to drag racing a Boeing triple 7 at Miami Int Airport. Creative idea and description: a Lamborghini does not just arrive, it takes over. A Lamborghini is much more than a car to drive, it’s a car to be seen in. It’s a car you don’t just own, it’s a car you share. This launch would take place in real life, full of raw passion and lust for life. Miami - a world Premiere on ocean drive. An exclusive highspeed duel on an Int. Airport. A celebrity Testdrive-Parade through the

city. An unexpected Pop Up Store in the high-class shopping District. The fastest City Takeover ever! Not many cities would close off streets and allocate police escorts to accommodate 24 fire spitting Lamborghinis roaming their streets. Miami not only did that but also allowed us to drag race a Boeing triple 7 at the Int. Airport. Next to the parade through the city as a way to involve the general public, we also had the official unveiling in public on Ocean road. And to satisfy the desire for Lamborghini apparel after being exposed to the brand, we opened a pop-up store. Results: more than 120 Lamborghini Aventador on the cover of the int. press. The event generated many column inches of free publicity. Not just about the launch of a new Lamborghini but also covering the novel way of including the public in the event.

Samsung Roadshow 2013 Objective: to unite the ever-expanding range and give visitors a real sense of discovery about the new product and technological advances being put on show, as well as the new Samsung brand ideal. Creative idea and description: showcasing latest products, design and technology across all categories from items as small as a micro memory card, up to an 85” UHD-TV in an exhibition space ranging 4,000-6,000m2. The message of discovery was key. The ‘Hub’ has been positioned at the centre of each site. Two perforated walls create a room visible from all areas of the show. Inside, the latest technological advances from each category were placed to be experienced in relation to each other, linking the category zones to create a sense of technological discovery. The identity was inspired by the shape of the ‘Hub’ and the tagline, ‘Mehr Moglich Machen’-‘Make More Possible’. Taking product silhouettes, a repeatable pattern has been fret-cut into the ‘Hub’ walls, together with the fret-cut statement: Innovation, Inspiration, Emotion. The fret-cut technique worked to keep the discovery theme of the show integrated with the main feature. Media Mix: a 5-step invitation mailing process; newsletter marketing; special interest magazine ads; social media announcements on Samsung’s own and partner channels; videos on social media sites and the microsite; PR round tables and workshops; dealer and employee training; guided tours for visitors; site events (sneak preview and PR events); speeches; award ceremony; crew party; integration of sponsorship projects i.e. FC Bayern Munich and BMW

Motorsport; giveaways, including carrier bags and welcome packs. Staging and set design: the setup involved 24x 40t trucks and sites ranging from 4,000-6,000m². An efficient logistics and design concept enabled the movement of the show in short time slots e.g. 1 day. Intimate experiences and high-impact areas like the central ‘Hub’ could be assembled using the same components. Focus areas, including training rooms and the built-in kitchen area, invited visitors to experience the products. Simple, large-scale furniture and navigation brought clarity and unity to the brand and products. Results: most successful show to date in regards to visitor numbers, orders and clippings generated. The event has reinforced Samsung’s market position in Germany. All targets have been outreached. The very positive ROI has raised the bar and expectations for next year’s show.

As a global roadshow, it aims to reach as many stakeholders as possible and provide opportunities for encounters. Creative idea and description: the concept is a spatial translation of the Bayer mission of ‘Science For A Better Life’.

Each one stands for a specific Bayer theme – from ‘A’ for ‘Aspirin’ via ‘E’ for ‘Energy Efficient Mobility’, right the way through to ‘S’ for ‘Science’. Using concrete and literally tangible examples, we show our visitors how Bayer has used research and innovative products to help make millions of people’s lives better. The global travelling exhibition is aimed at employees, clients and members of the general public. The spatial flexibility, the well-designed handling and pack sizes, which are ideal for 40’ containers, make the exhibition ‘road-proof’ for its tour of 28 international settings. At each of these, it will be a catalyst for events and news coverage. Catalogues in the local language and QR codes for extra information. A roll-up version will allow it to be seen in smaller venues. Media Mix: PR, invitations, banner adv, social media and the anniversary homepage. A toolkit with preparatory material is available on the intranet. Major company events, such as the annual results press conference, the AGM and the official ‘150 years of Bayer’ celebrations, have been used as launch platforms.

Staging and set design: the exhibition, together with its packaging and transport, meets Bayer AG’s CI standards. The 21+1 (mission statement plus history) letter cases provide exciting spatial experiences, which are flexible over areas of 200 to 2,000 m². The outsize letters have a striking long-distance effect, whilst inviting the visitors on a voyage of discovery. The exhibition can be easily set up ‘ out-of-the-box’ at the Bayer sites. Results: halfway through the tour of the 28 sites, almost 25,000 visitors have seen the exhibition. Many employees have proudly presented the exhibition to their families. At the same time, they get to find out what’s going on elsewhere in the complex group, so they can improve their understanding of it.

Der Golf bewegt Deutschland Objective: when Volkswagen introduced the new Golf, the people should get to know the car easily. Since the Golf is a car for the people, it should be brought closer to the people, and lead to the generation of around 10,000 test drives. Creative idea and description: when Volkswagen launched the new Golf, there was to be an overhaul of the standard procedure of such launches; potential clients should no longer have to make a trip

to the car dealers, but instead, the cars would come to them. For 2 ½ weeks, a roadshow with stops in 47 German cities invited the public to get to know the new Golf first-hand. Anyone and everyone could sign up, either beforehand or spontaneously - for the drive to work, school, or in the event of those surprise rain showers. The new Golf proved itself as a reliable partner in every situation. It was even possible to book the new Golf online through car-sharing agencies for trips between cities. The highlights however, were the special experience test drives accompanied by German celebrities. During the drive, experts informed the testers about the latest features of the car, and returned the vehicles back to base. The Golf became the perfect accompaniment for everyday life. Results: in just over two weeks, almost 11,000 people tested the new Golf Germany-wide. 47 radio stations and 20 websites covered the campaign, and 400,000 newsletter contacts were generated. In addition to this, contact was made with new target groups.

Sauna WM Objective: with variety, cultural differences and a strong focus on aesthetics, the goal is to open up the topic to a new target group and give ‘Sauna’ a more positive spin. Creative idea and description: in 2008 the idea of enriching the topic wellness with sauna and steam room and promoting it, was born. Since 2009 the Sauna WM is held annually for sauna lovers. The criterion is not the length of the Sauna Aufguss or how long you can stay in the Sauna. Pleasure is the main goal. The best fragrance, the right dosage, the matching comment, maybe also a good joke at the right moment – all this and much more can create the best Sauna-Aufguss. Key points of the Sauna World Cup are neutrality and objectivity. It is important, what the sauna guest likes, not what the organisation sees as priority. Therefore the agency has the following rules: No expert jury, the guests decide, what they like. Neutrality of the organizer - the agency do not own a spa or produce saunas. Internationality and multicultural aspect is important. Aesthetics - the cultivated sauna experience is key. Professionalism - an experienced, dynamic team. Safety - a doctor’s team on location. Media Mix: announcements and reports in newspapers, magazines, Tv and a variety of online media like social networks, websites, community and industry forums. Staging and set design: the staging is kept as simple as possible to not disturb the wellness character of the event itself but also the character of the host spas. Banners and posters have been used

to brand the location and to give the contestants and visitors all necessary informations. Results: since 2009 it has been around 120 contestants in the finals, from more than 20 nations and 4 continents. The public interest in the topic and the event is increasing year by year, what leads to an rapidly increasing number of visitors and international media appearances.

DSV Beach Booth Objective: after ten years of not participating at international fairs, the ‘hidden champion’ Dsv, headquarters in Denmark, wanted to convincingly and memorably present itself in Munich. Creative idea and description: even though DSV is one of the leading suppliers worldwide for transportation logistics, with 22,000 employees, one hardly knows the brand in Germany. During workshops for the communication concept, brand values were identified and used to develop a story line. The sympathetic home-base country is modern, as are the inhabitants - communicative and sympathetic. DSV is global, large and very modern - the decisive factor is though: to be sympathetic, down to earth, and most of all - very Danish! The trade fair booth should not only reflect these remote associations with Denmark, relaxing holidays and wonderful memories, but awaken and provoke these same feelings among the visitors. Implementing the key idea with standard furnishings is obvious - although a beach bar at a transport and logistics trade show, not easy! Thus the ‘DSV booth beach’, in short ‘trade talk’, and the innovative idea of booth communication proved to be absolutely correct in the spirit of the times. Media Mix: the Danish beach hut was an ad image

that travelled around the world. An advertisement and online campaign was developed that showed the image in various, globally recognized environments. The hut was in Central Park, in front of Chinese temples, at the end of the Golden Gate Bridge and in Sydney. The message was clear: From Denmark to the rest of the world. Staging and set design: the ‘beach hut’ and the design of the DSV trade show presentation was the perfect solution to the story that developed from the brand values. The key words ‘modern’, ‘global’ ‘sympathetic’ and ‘very Danish’ were transferred throughout the entire room with a simple, memorable idea. Large images of beach motifs, beach flags, ecologically-friendly building materials and of course lots of sand evoked an all-round harmonious atmosphere. Results: the feedback for the ‘beach booth’ was overwhelming. The envisaged time spent at the booth per visitor far exceeded expectations and also the number of visitors coming to the booth. The visitors also responded positively and they were very pleased with the originality and inviting atmosphere.

Grande Arraial Yorn Objective: Lisbon’s biggest popular party is held on Santo António Day. It’s kind of Lisbon’s version of the Brazilian Carnival. The city dresses up for a celebration of pop culture with different parties in the different neighborhoods. Yorn wanted to be in the center of Lisbon’s celebration, being the most talked about and shared brand. Creative idea and description: the agency created an event in Lisbon’s most typical neighborhood, Alfama (also the center of Santo António Day Celebration). ‘Grande Arraial Yorn’ had everything you would expect in a Santo António Party: sardines, traditional barbecue, traditional games like arm wrestling, table football, amongst others. It was already a party. A huge one. But the agency made it bigger with DJ Toni, a Portuguese trio that mixes popular Portuguese music with electronic beats and one of the biggest Portuguese pop music artists, Ana Malhoa, who had never played Lisbon (her hometown). The event was promoted through short videos online, where Ana Malhoa invited everyone in different and unexpected situations.

All in all, we really captured the essence of Portuguese pop culture and provided the best of all Lisbon’s parties on Santo António Day, being talked on media. It was a party to remember. Media Mix: web. Results: more than 20,000 people watched Ana Malhoa Show.

Creative idea and description: the agency created a massive event that had, in the same building - an old abandoned school in the heart of Lisbon’s old town -, the most attractive lifestyle brands to the youth target: Adidas, Nike, Vans, Carhartt, DC’S , just to name a few ‘big ones’, and also different independent and emerging Portuguese brands like Cardume. But youth lifestyle and fashion brands were not everything. These 3 intensive days were a celebration of the brand’s and youth’s culture, all mashed into one entity: discount shopping, live gigs, DJ’S, Skate, Bmx trials and demos, Bike Polo and urban art. The event was for Yorn clients only, but they could take a friend from another phone network with them. To reinforce Yorn’s advantage, the agency had two price tags -

a lower one only for Yorns. This way the agency gave a real motif for non-Yorns to convert themselves to Yorn at the door and experience the full promotional advantages. Media Mix: tv, press, outdoor, web. Results: 5,000 people attended, more than 100 different brands, 10 live gigs, 20 DJ acts, more than 100 skaters passed by the mini half pipe.

‘Night of Magic Heads’ 2013 Objective: the NMA is considered one of the most coveted awards by Germany’s digital advertising industry. In recent years the perceived highlight was the after show party. Now InteractiveMedia wanted a new agency to come up with a concept that places more emphasis on the actual awards ceremony. Creative idea and description: It was primarily the dramatic presentation of the awards ceremony that kept the audience involved and activated. The absence of the monotonous recital of the same statements and exhausting routines was refreshing. Instead, the presentation was enthralling and full of surprises from beginning to end. It began with the magic spell that turned a small book into the giant ‘Book of Magic Heads’, continued with the interesting, creatively produced category trailers and the surprising mechanism of the pop-up book and its five artfully depicted motifs. A unique fold-up motif was created for each category, which made humorous references to the magic the head behind the story created. Every award winner was surprised with a new lovingly created page of the book paired with a song that accompanied his or her appearance, which served as the vehicle to transport the exact emotion each discipline specifically evokes. The result:

a unique, absolutely one-of-a-kind moment. This was an awards ceremony that combined an esteem expressing celebration with a show full of interesting variations and surprises for both, guests and nominees: show time for the very best ideas. None of the 650 guests left the room during the 1 and a half hour awards ceremony. This is a phenomenon one would be hard pressed to experience at any other awards ceremony. Excitement until the end and the nominees received maximum reverence.

Telia Melodifestivalen Song Contest, Studioplay Objective: to increase consideration and likability for the Telia brand; to drive traffic to store and Telia’s digital channels and to increase sales. Creative idea and description: the agency developed a digiphysical B2C concept for Telia in connection to Melodifestivalen 2013, a national pre-competition electing Sweden’s representative in the Eurovision Song Contest. The digiphysical activation focus was chosen as it captures the essence of Telia’s services/products to the modern family. The concept was composed of a set-up of digital plattforms of which all physical acitivy was connected to. All from digital tablets and mobile phones to tv and web screens and a number of different social softwares were used, enabling the Melodifestivalen audience to take part of extra content in connection to the competition tour. Driving physical event activation and using social platforms for extra content we also build in encouragement for a social spread, increasing visibility, consideration, likability for Telia as well as driving traffic to Telia’s web page, all with a strong relevance and connection to Melodifestivalen. Media Mix: throught Telia platforms visitors could interact with the event in numerous ways, on the campaign site we aggregated all social media content on Facebook, twitter and instagram and for the participation it would be possible to win tickets to the events and products. The main activity however was the interviews with all the artist where fans could decide what was going to happen by simply following the series, answer a few questions and

suggesting what they would like to happen and we would make it come true. Staging and set design: the focus was set on technology and of course the purple color that signifies Telia. For the arena stage photo set, two entire walls were made up of big and small screens, mobile phones, tablets and TV-screens. And in the filming studio a subtle purple backdrop with Studioplay’s logo, the interviewer always had a tablet nearby. This helped deliver the message that Telia is a pioneering company utilizing 4G- and 3G-technology on every given occasion, as this is one of Telia’s main services. Results: in just 8 weeks the campaign reached 2,151,936 people and the number of people talking about Telia increased with 230%.
