Fonterra Milk For Schools Launch
SMC worked in conjunction with Fonterra to plan a the ‘Milk For Schools” Launch. Hosted at a local primary school, the theme was country comes to the city. Hay bales, farm animals, balloons, milk tanker and tractors will provide the back drop for the fun day.
The pupils played games with hero’s such as Richie McCaw. The formal part of the day included a stage with the back drop of a Fonterra Milk tanker for offical speeches and media interview. The day was reported live on TV1 and TV3 news.
A sponsor of the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon, Haier desired to have a “fun and free” activation for kids, to take the stress away from parents!
SMC designed a multifaceted touch point activation on site to engage with kids and their parents. Games based activity activation included:
Netball Game - Children thew a lightweight netball into a Haier washing machine shell to win a range of branded prizes
Selfie Board - A free standing selfie board that depicted a large front loader washing machine. Kids stood behind, with an area to insert head. Bubbles and foam graphic looked like the washing machine was on.
