above target increase in ticket sales


increase in social media reach targets


increase in contacts captured


Our objectives were to; 

  • Increase ticket sales from 2017
  • Encourage M Festival app downloads
  • Increase social reach by 50%
  • Generate 50% increased contacts

Because M Festival was both an outdoor festival and much more than just an automotive showroom, we needed to appeal to a diverse group of people.


Our solution was to create unique interactions that would encapsulate the event, allowing us to set up the purchase moment through content, social interactions, messaging and innovation.

  • Omni-channel approach:
  • Digital engagement
  • Gamification (online and at the event)
  • A radio & print partnership
  • OOH
  • Interactive Chatbot
  • Influencer challenges


  • Ticket Sales increased by 25% 
  • Social reach increased by 59%.(9% above target)
  • 149% increase in contacts captured.(99% above target)
