Best Integrated Campaign in 2012: Consumer Electronics Association

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) was recognized as the Best Integrated Campaign in the industry. CEA provided its members a unique and powerful event program this year to demo the latest in video and digital audio. To maximize consumer awareness and interest, CEA provided their nationwide member base with a synchronized series of event weekends, "CEA Demo Days," supported with a complete integrated suite of digital and print-ready marketing materials.

The power of the integration went beyond a broad marketing mix – this program brought together video and audio technology, multiple manufacturers, nationwide dealers and consumers in a 3-event program intended to grow business for everyone in the industry network.

The creative assets, totaling over 20 for each event, ranged from emails to Facebook apps and ads, online banners, direct mail, print ads, in-store merchandising and a unique custom microsite. Dealers were able to co-brand and customize these assets to both benefit from the national campaign platform and microsite and create a custom experience for local consumers and customers. Manufacturers were given the opportunity to sponsor the event program both nationally and for their specific dealers to further generate demand.

The first demo days weekend was held in July and participating dealers experienced great results. "Our members have given us great feedback on this program and the breadth of marketing assets provided to promote it and drive store traffic," said Kerry Moyer, Senior Director, CEA. "The first two events held in July and August were big hits and we anticipate similar results for the Digital Audio event to be held September 14-16 nationwide. The ability for our dealers to easily access, customize and launch a completely integrated digital and print marketing campaign on the Revenew marketing network for the first time this year is a big benefit we are pleased to provide our members."
