A Quick Guide to Toronto Experiential Marketing Companies
EXPERIENTIAL MARKETING :: Experiential marketing is essentially engagement marketing, where consumers are able to directly participate with the brand. In some cases, a client may have a brilliant idea to promote their brand or product, but need assistance with design, building and staffing. A great example of an experiential marketing campaign Tigris worked with EXPRESS from 2014-2016. The client wanted to increase brand awareness in the retail market and expand sales at the store level.
Tigris built a larger than life mobile pop-up closer with the support of our creative partners. Not only was this design eye-catching, but the promotion also included a text to win gift card giveaway and coupon strategy to entice consumers to visit the store for special, limited time offers. This activation traveled across Canada over 25 times at TIFF, concerts, malls and campuses (a number that continues to grow). Tigris also supplied female promotional models to wear the clothes and encourage customer participation.
EVENT PLANNING :: Throughout our 13 years in business, Tigris has also planned many events for our clients. Recently, a nautical themed post-wedding reception for our very own CEO, Serena Holmes, was planned for June 4th. We are currently preparing for St. Joseph’s Toronto West Halloween Fest. Although the event isn’t until October, our team has already begun planning for this unique event. Tigris is responsible for various city permits (the event shuts down Bloor St between Jane & Runnymede), sponsorships, onsite activations, performances and more. Last year, over 10,000 participants contributed to the Toronto event fundraising efforts by buying tickets to participate in onsite activation’s and food/beverages.
Tigris was also recently involved in the planning of Canada Post’s Montreal Road Show. We sourced the venue, caterers and bilingual staff to support the event. If you’re planning a celebration, seasonal event or customer appreciation event, let us take the logistics off your plate. Tigris also teamed up with Brandfire to plan a unique exhibition to promote the launch of Burt’s Bees new line of lipstick appropriately called, “Shades”. Tigris was responsible for sourcing a unique venue in Toronto, appropriate DJ and musician, food and beverage, as well as photography and videography. As you can see, we’ve got a few great events under our belt!
EVENT STAFFING :: Sometimes, our clients simply need the staffing support for their event, which we are more than happy to provide! When a client has booked Tigris to supply staff, we reach out to those on our team that live close to the event, as well as posses the appropriate skills and look to represent your brand.
