WHAT WE DID

Taking a two-pronged approach, Grooveyard serviced 300 accounts for C&C Gleeson across Ireland to promote Corona Extra to both trade and consumers. Firstly, we developed an innovative concept, the Lime & Reveal scratch card brand activation. Lime & Reveal cards were distributed to accounts across the IOI to be given out with each bottle sold. A wedge of lime was used to activate the strip, revealing a prize underneath. Attendees were in with a chance to win an ultimate prize of a trip to Ibiza which Grooveyard managed. Our creative team developed the artwork for the card utilising Corona imagery to ensure maximum brand recognition. Lime & Reveal cards were specifically designed to coincide with the ‘Find Your Summer’ activation on social media. For the second stage, hand-picked Corona Brand Ambassadors provided sampling opportunities and engaged Corona Extra drinkers using a ‘Snappie’¬Ě bespoke photo app. Grooveyard also organised three promotional events to coincide with the activations and amplify the campaign. The ‘Corona Sunset Session Tours’ and took place in Dublin and Cork.
