THE CHALLENGE

Promote the new blu MAX eCigarette launching exclusively in Brighton by inviting influencers with a high local reach to create a buzz around the blu MAX product, creating interest and intrigue.

Ensure the event was attended by only local press so they could experience the product, meet the team and get immersed in the brand and its values. The objective was to secure press coverage while not overstepping the rules set out by the Advertising Standards Association with regards to the promotion of eCigarettes.

THE SOLUTION

blu MAX #MaxYourself Brighton event press invite

We wanted to create a buzz around the launch. The idea behind the campaign was to MAX yourself, essentially, up-skill. We invited an artist and a GIF photographer to the event to teach our guests new skills and create talk-ability. 

 

We invited a list of Brighton based journalists, publications and influencers to attend and cover the story of the new product available only to the people of Brighton.

We wrote and shared a press release containing key information about the product and the launch event.
