Featured Event: SHOWTIME

By | EPS Event Portfolio | No Comments


For the second consecutive year, EventPro Strategies provided staffing for an awareness campaign for SHOWTIME at Eat|See|Hear in Los Angeles.  Eat|See|Hear is a weekly event that features outdoor movies, food trucks, and live music.  Thousands of people flock to the event each week, giving SHOWTIME the perfect opportunity to showcase their brand to movie lovers.

EPS hired a team of brand ambassadors to assist with the event marketing campaign which took place over the course of five months. The primary goal of the campaign was to create awareness for SHOWTIME’s streaming service and drive mobile app downloads.  Our brand ambassadors interacted with attendees and provided key information about the streaming service and its features.  Additionally, they encouraged visitors to download the SHOWTIME mobile app and register for a thirty-day trial of the service.  The team also distributed branded promotional headbands to attendees and premium items to those who successfully signed up for the service. The brand ambassadors did an excellent job creating awareness for the service and generating app downloads, making the campaign highly successful!

Brand awareness campaigns are a great way to spread the word about a new or existing product or service.  However, the right team of brand ambassadors is the key to a successful campaign that will have lasting results.  EPS has successfully executed thousands of brand awareness events and we can help you, too!  If you are looking for brand ambassadors to market your product or service, please click below to contact a member of our client services team!

How to Improve Your Brand’s Fan Experience in 2017

By | Event Marketing Trends | No Comments

Improving Your Brand's Fan Experience

Listening to blues music pour from the TV, I didn’t have to attend the recent NHL Winter Classic to know it was much more than a hockey match. Home-based viewers like me could feel the tremendous fan experience in this year’s host city of St. Louis. Yet, we knew it wasn’t as good as being at the real thing. As one article summed up the scene, “St. Louis’ famous Ballpark Village was transformed into the Blues’ fan hub as the NHL Winter Classic ‘Fan Fest’ drew fans from all over. From shooting areas, to photo ops, to live concerts with stars like St. Louis’ own Nelly, the Winter Classic was made for fans of all ages and backgrounds.” With this level of entertainment, it’s no surprise lines were “at least a block long” to access the fan experience area.

When they associate your brand with their favorite team or band, your experiential campaign objectives are amplified. Read More
