GAMETIME

GameTime is one of the leading playground manufacturers in the U.S., having been involved with crafting play structures since 1929. They’re at the forefront of creating structures that are inclusive, revolutionary and, most importantly, downright fun to play on.

GameTime had to grab the attention of Parks and Recreation directors across the nation leading up to the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) Tradeshow in Vegas. They were launching a new line of equipment designed to revolutionize exercise and outside play.

Our challenge was to cut through the typical noise associated with a trade show, creating an experience that would be memorable enough to draw new clients in a saturated market.

OF QUARTERLY SALES GOAL MET IN TWO DAYS

The video-in-print technology we used allows video, in crystal clear display, to start as soon as the item is opened. Paired with a brochure showing off the new product line, it made for a package that engaged almost all the senses.

From the moment the piece leaves the box, it engages the recipient and sells GameTime. Once the directors arrived at the trade show, they were escorted to a VIP event and, the next day, treated to an interactive launch of the Challenge Course by GameTime staff.

THE BOTTOM LINE GameTime experienced record attendance at the VIP event, more than doubling their invite list. More importantly, they reached 50% of their quarterly sales goal in just two days at the event. Whoever said what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas?

Power Systems is a fitness company based out of Chattanooga, TN, specializing in delivering great customer service to the fitness industry while offering a comprehensive suite of products.

The new brand was unleashed at one of the largest fitness expositions in the country, the Florida Fitness Expo. The brand created a big buzz among its competitors and within the company.

THE BOTTOM LINE The brand was re-energized, and external interest and inquiries increased across all vertical markets.
