The best game you can name, is the good old hockey game!

With summer festivals in full swing, we can’t help but miss watching hockey every weekend!

This year we teamed up with Under Armour and helped to cheer on the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens in the 2017 Stanley Cup Play offs!!! We set up a cardio wall where hockey fans got to test out their reflexes and see if they could beat the highest score…it’s harder than it looks! After getting in a good workout, fans got to take their picture inside our Under Armour photo booth and dress up as Mitch Marner or Carey Price!

It was a crazy few weeks driving between Toronto and Montreal – but we wouldn’t have had it any other way.


A Summer of Road Trips!

We have had a crazy summer – and it’s only mid-July!

Our summer wine tour kicked off the last weekend in May with a quick stop in at Niagara Falls for Springlicious! Since then we have been to Sunfest in London, the LaSalle Strawberry Festival, the Burlington Sound of Music, we did a great Canadian road trip up to Ottawa for Canada Day – and this past weekend we stopped in at the Big on Bloor Festival in Toronto! We have had a great time serving a variety of delicious VQA Ontario wines to people across Ontario! #followthetruck to a festival near you!

After having a blast at the Bread and Honey festival, we will be attending the Mississauga Mac n Cheese festival this weekend to give out some great #DixieDeals! Spin our Dixie Deal Wheel to win awesome Dixie Mall Swag!!!

 

 


Hockey, Beards, Beer, and Bounty!

Well, Pond Hockey is a wrap for 2017!

Thanks to The Strategic Agency and North American Breweries for letting us be a part of a great program as we visited Vermont, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and New York to add support and fun to a wintertime US classic.

Check out some of the great Brand Ambassadors who helped us bring it to life and some ‘unique’ shots from tournaments.

Looking forward to next year already…even in the great cold outdoors!

GO BEE!

Let’s warm up…

Let’s warm up with a Summer memory, 2016! The Labatt USA Summer Games. Our partnership with The Strategic Agency in New York was developing game elements, executing events at venues and providing the Summer Tour Staff to bring the event to Life!


A December to remember!

December, 2016 was a month full of fun events around here.

We set up a Cider Nook at Dixie Outlet Mall which ran from December 16th to 21st.  A fun way for holiday shoppers to take a break and enjoy our lounge with some hot apple cider!  A 2016 December Eventsholiday event to remember!

Plus, between December 16th to 23rd, we were set up at CF Sherway Gardens for the VQA Holiday tasting experience!  It was all about tasting and educating our holiday shoppers located in the Laura Court.

 

 


Give them an EXPERIENCE!

Mobile Beverage Sampling ‘Bassmobile’ project featured the custom creation of a mobile English Pub dedicated to Bass Ale and bass-mobilepremium InBev brands. Called a ‘Best in Class’ promotion, the Bassmobile touched over 4.5 million people across America visiting special events, licensees, wholesale and trade activation’s.

The best way to sell products is to establish an emotional connection between a consumer and a product. The best ways to create an emotional connection with someone who has never tried your product is to give them an experience with it.

 

 


Getting interactive at Dixie!

A great interactive event that ran August 12th to September 4th, 2016 with one of Canada’s largest enclosed outlet shopping centres. Dixie Outlet Mall hosted the VR Adventure Lounge. The Lounge featured the latest in virtual reality technology and interactive gaming alongside complimentary WIFI, snacks and beverages to enhance the thrill of back-to-school savings and discount shopping at Dixie.

In partnership with Samsung, the free VR Adventure Lounge featured the new Samsung Gear Virtual Reality, a completely portable, comfortable to wear, and simple to set up virtual reality goggles.

Interactive marketing done right!
