We’ve activated over 5000 in-store sessions in the last decade. Our staff are well presented, HACCP trained and store inducted, and are thoroughly educated on all products they represent. They work hard to create a personal experience with each customer, encouraging them to not only sample the product, but to then make a purchase.
Some of the best spaces to show off a new product or engage with members of the public are within shopping centres or malls, with their guaranteed traffic flow. Whether it be new car demonstrations, competitions, photography displays or school holiday activities, our team are familiar with it all.

Every day, hundreds of thousands of people catch public transport to and from work. This is one of our favourite times to activate - knowing we can get thousands of samples out into people’s hands in a few short hours. Does this need something about where to sample and permits/parking etc.

In a time where people can often get similar products from a large number of retailers and online, it’s becoming increasingly important to retain your customers.

Shopper events extend the time frame for consumer conversations. They help make your consumers long-term advocates for your brand. Store opening celebrations help to build that loyal customer base from the word go.
