Contemporary live formats will be just as much in demand in future as digital formats that extend their timeframe and content. The clear trends emerging in the changing marketing requirements of large numbers of companies include a strengthening of their regional presence and D2C (Direct to Consumer) activities, the exploitation of all available physical and digital channels and the provision of digital marketplaces.
“Our future lies in creative combinations of physical and digital formats and holistic experiential marketing solutions.”Beat Zwahlen, Group CEO
Our future lies in creative combinations of live events and digital formats, offering target groups unique physical experiences and providing content and services online throughout the year. And it also lies in holistic solutions that enable customers to make the most of the opportunities created in this way – comprehensive experience marketing solutions that extend from the strategy through to implementation, in either physical or digital form and on a regional or global basis.
With the support of the Business Development & Innovation team, the development of future-oriented formats and experience marketing solutions is being intensively driven forward in all business areas. A few examples:
