Relevant entertainment marketing strategies

We created the strategy, Hot Dogs & Conversations, for The Samphire Club and Hotel Du Vin Exeter’s flagship summer party 2019. Taking The Samphire Club’s strap line, Canapes and Conversations, we applied the Hot Dogs based on the event taking place on the 4th July. With this American inspired theme we asked guests to nominate their favourite American songs for the event playlist, answer a simple Independence Day question for a chance to win a stay in the Hotel Du Vin, and to list relevant connections they would like to make at the event. By creating a more personalised invite, experience, and involving some of the most popular brand names across the South West, the event was nicely balanced to benefit The Samphire Club’s Membership and showcase the Hotel Du Vin Exeter’s indoor and outdoor facilities, and the new summer menu.

Hashtag Hotels trusted us to design the most relevant and feasible entertainment marketing strategy possible. What we created, Hashtag Hotels Supports Artists, allowed the group to help management and up and coming artists on their development cycle in return for VIP experiences, tickets to events, tours, festivals, and exclusive music and content. Hashtag Hotels Supports Artists was nicely balanced to benefit all parties. 

The Quintessentially Group, American Express and Chime Sports Marketing asked us to programme pioneering talent for a series of new events based on the core values of their business, customers, audience and proposed event programmes. What we created, was a series of relevant pioneering talent programmes, changing the way people experienced, engaged and obtained new knowledge through their brands.
