Creativity & Production
Faced with a challenging retail market, Hungary’s biggest mall needed to take a fresh look at how to target its affluent fashion-focussed shoppers. With budgets reduced, a radical rethink of strategy was needed along with a totally original approach to the centre’s advertising.
We developed a plan to run challenging and provocative advertising built around cultural tensions in order to create stand-out in the market. Using topical issues of politics, immigration & sexual equality as starting points, we developed a approach which allowed social media, PR and in-centre activities to bring the creative theme to life.
The results were amazing, with over €11 million in additional sales generated for its retailers as a result of the annual campaign – an ROI of 1232. Sales increased by 13.2% at the peak of the campaign with footfall up 6.2% for the same period. Tertiary catchment penetration up from 16 to 25%.
