Why is this work relevant for PR?BRU is Belgium’s finest water, served in Belgium’s finest restaurants. Since always, BRU is the Belgian legacy brand at the finest tables. However, last few years, BRU was slowly but clearly losing the battle to that other fine-dining Italian brand, San Pellegrino. In order to win back the table-legacy BRU decided to choose a talk-value strategy instead of flatly trying to reclaim the table via a campaign. They decided to be the brand that takes a stand and used a broad press strategy to make sure that their audience knew about it.
BackgroundBRU is Belgium’s finest water, served in Belgium’s finest restaurants. Thanks to its light sparkles it is recognized to be the best possible match for fine dining. Which is why, since always, BRU is a legacy brand at the table. However, last few years, BRU was slowly but clearly losing the battle to that other fine-dining Italian brand, San Pellegrino. Brief: reclaim the ultimate finest table-brand position by being a brand with a clear societal point of view.
Describe the creative ideaInsight: Nowadays, any table seems to be hijacked by Email, Facebook & Instagram. 1 out of 5 gives more facetime to their tiny screen than to anything else. And 82% of us, thinks it’s actually really annoying. Idea: BRU Table Mode. An encouragement to resist the urge of checking your phone when you’re at the table, via one simple gesture: putting your phone face-down.
Describe the strategyThe audience is large and targeted at the same time. It’s large because it’s aimed towards anybody that also feels annoyed if your company around the table seems to be giving more facetime towards their small screen (81% of us). It’s targeted since we mostly aim towards people that love to go fine dining. The pr-plan consisted out of 2 important steps: 1 launch of BRU Table Mode as a behavioural encouragement towards consumers and a incitement towards restaurants to participate. And make the press join the conversation. 2 a second round of press because of the introduction BRU Table Mode Menu.
Describe the execution‘Table mode’ was introduced via an on-pack Smartphone sticker and press release.. Within a week, restaurants started joining the ‘Table Mode movement’, and made themselves known via Window stickers. And a ‘Table Mode’, table box. But it didn’t stop there. One of Belgium’s finest restaurant took the lead. Together with BRU they developed a ‘Table Mode Menu’. The first ever 8-course menu, meticulously dressed on your smartphone. Allowing you to really enjoy the food, and the company. But they didn’t have to worry, as people love taking photos of food, we took the pictures ourselves beforehand and mailed them after the event.
List the resultsBRU clearly took a stand and used the power of conversation to reclaim the table versus their biggest competitor. The press engaged massively, in two big waves. Which was exactly as planned. Millions of Belgians were reached through the power of a brand having a clear point of view.
Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work.
The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.
PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
