A free concert for the Honor View 20 launch
Reading time 2 min.
When HONOR launched their View 20 phone back in 2019, they wanted to do so with a bang. WaveCrest created a free event to the main target group, facilitating encounters and creating unforgettable brand experiences.
Huawei's HONOR brand is targeted mainly at a young, trendy clientele. At the time when they were launching their View 20 phone, they collaborated with a Finnish artist, Robin Packalen. In addition to commercials, ads and other marketing materials, HONOR got this hugely popular artist to perform at a free concert at Narinkka Square in the center of Helsinki. Before Robin, other artists Lyömättömät, Mouhous and Sini Yasemin took the stage.
WaveCrest was in charge of encounters at this event that gathered 8000 people to the square and was also broadcasted live online. The luckiest few got to attend a meet&greet with Robin at the nearby Scandic hotel. WaveCrest had several roles and responsibilities around the event:
- Planning and executing the overall concept
- Pre- and post marketing, including booking and managing digital outdoor advertising
- Planning and organising a promotion in the Kamppi shopping center before and during the event
- All stakeholder relations, including artists and the meet&greet
- Booking and overseeing the event tech (stage, sound, lights) with event partner Bright Finland
- Collaboration with stores selling Huawei phones and their chain management
- Production of related POS materials and their logistics into stores
- Coordinating the partner network for the event, including the telecommunications company Elisa
- Planning and executing samplings with a promotion stand for an FMCG partner
- Creating and managing content for the related social media channels
An unforgettable launch event
The launch event was a huge success both on-site and online. This aftermovie by Heikki Salonen perfectly captures the mood of the event on a sunny Saturday in April.
