JOE GIBBS RACING: MUCH MORE THAN A STICKER ON A CAR

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) has evolved from operating as a basic sponsorship vehicle for its championship NASCAR team to providing a complete, integrated marketing platform for its 25+ partner companies. JGR’s modern, agency-like approach focuses on the creation of value across all platforms from traditional sponsorship fulfillment to a sophisticated business-to-business platform, social and digital content development, licensing, and public relations strategy.

BEING TRUE TO YOURSELF IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS: HOW MAILCHIMP DOES BRAND MARKETING

For most companies, building a successful brand requires listening to what made you successful in the first place: your instincts. In 2017, MailChimp set out to do just that with its "Did You Mean MailChimp?" campaign. As a company that has built itself on enabling small businesses to grow without compromise, MailChimp set out to show that it practices what it preaches: being creative and true to yourself is good for business. Instead of the expected brand campaign, “Did You Mean MailChimp?” created an entire ecosystem of artful and playful experiences for people to engage with. The campaign brought the MailChimp brand to new audiences around the world and was the recipient of a 2017 Cannes Lions Cyber Grand Prix. In this session, learn how experiential marketing can be used to surprise and delight customers and help grow your brand; how a well-defined brand purpose can strengthen your marketing content; and some practices for measuring the success of brand content.

HOW EXTENDED STAY AMERICA USED THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY TRAVELER TO DRIVE OCCUPANCY

For most brands in the extended stay hotel segment, the holiday season traditionally brings a decrease in occupancy—resulting in lower revenue at a time when every dollar counts for 4th quarter reporting. Many companies respond by slashing room rates and cutting back on their marketing efforts, saving their budget and big campaigns for “high season”. In this session, you will learn how Extended Stay America joined forces with Cherry Hill Programs in a barter agreement to house hundreds of Santas across the country in exchange for marketing rights as “Santa’s Favorite Hotel”. Through creative messaging, nostalgic imagery, engaging social media content, and a $100,000 budget, see how ESA reaches millions of consumers for outstanding results in incremental revenue at year end.
