BUD LIGHT BRONCOS X STADIUM ACTIVATION

DENVER, CO

OVERVIEW

Tailgating is an integral part of the NFL experience. Every stadium across the country has parking lots where fans gather as soon as the gates open for barbecue, beer, and camaraderie. Even as stadiums become increasingly upscale, tailgates remain a grassroots, fan-centric part of football Sundays. Through creative planning, The Pineapple Agency put over 14,000 beverages into fans’ hands over the course of the season while following all the rules for tailgates at Empower Field.

STRATEGIC APPROACH

Empower Field does not make exceptions for tailgate load-in or load-out rules, so The Pineapple Agency worked with Bud Light and local vendors to create a seamless fan experience. The goal was to throw the ultimate sponsored Denver Broncos party, all while preserving the casual, fan-centric atmosphere that makes tailgates worth showing up early for.

EXECUTION

Through a series of high-energy tailgates, Bud Light and The Pineapple Agency reached 6,400 fans during the 2019 Denver Broncos’ season. The goal was to throw the ultimate tailgate party with plenty of Bud Light swag and immerse each fan in the Bud Light Broncos team spirit. Popping the tab on over 14,000 Anheuser Busch-brand beverages helped keep the atmosphere light, while the special guests, photo moments, parking lot games, and casual feel made the Bud Light Broncos Experience the ideal pre-game scenario. The Pineapple Agency enjoyed having the opportunity to do what we do best: a mix of creative, strategy, production and logistics, and a whole lot of fun with our client.

RESULTS

Each tailgate catered to 500-800 football fans, serving over 1,800 beverages per game. The Bud Light Knight attended four of the eight tailgates and the Broncos’ own Stampede + Broncos Bass spirit and drumlines stopped by several times, providing fans with unique engagement and social media sharing opportunities. The Bud Light Broncos Experience tailgate was featured on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football broadcast when Denver hosted the Kansas City Chiefs as the most raucous pre-game party before a noteworthy AFC West rivalry matchup!

TRADE SHOW SERVICES

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn" el_class="grey"]

The Pineapple Agency works with B2C, B2B, and DTC brands on trade show booths, vendor footprints, and sponsorship footprints of all sizes and shapes. While we call them 'booths', we pride ourselves in creating experiences that are so much more than 'just a booth'. Our services cover A-Z creative, renderings, sourcing, fabricating, and on-site set up, maintenance, operations, tear-down and freight/shipping.

STRATEGIC APPROACH

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn" el_class="grey"]As with all of our projects,  we start the process by working closely with your team to understand how the trade show or event presence fits into your overall marketing strategy. From there, we'll either make suggestions from your creative vision or we can start from scratch and identify a creative direction that will help you exceed your goals. On the logistical side, our team brings many years of production and fabrication experience which translates into streamlined processes, faster builds, and higher quality production. Rest assured that we will be tuned into all details including environmental layout, branding, size and specifications, premium building materials, and convenience of storage and transportation.  We love good design. But we also know that there is much more to a trade show booth than aesthetics. Our booths are beautiful but strategic, functional but interactive, unique but easy to set-up, and engaging but sturdy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width="stretch_row_content_no_spaces" parallax="content-moving" parallax_image="18406" css=".vc_custom_1546550556350{padding-top: 4em !important;padding-right: 4em !important;padding-bottom: 6em !important;padding-left: 4em !important;}" el_id="slider"][vc_column][vc_images_carousel images="19041,19040,19042,19029,19032,19028,19047,19034,19035,19039,19031,19036,19033,19037,19030,19043" img_size="1200x600" autoplay="yes" wrap="yes"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width="stretch_row_content_no_spaces" css=".vc_custom_1544301237505{background-color: #191c23 !important;}" el_id="post-list"][vc_column][na_posts_grid style="mega-post-carousel3" height="400px" img_padding="0" grid="2" excerpt="0" comment="none" catg="none" txtclr="#ffffff" dateclr="#ffffff" descclr="#ffffff" settings="size:2|order_by:date|order:ASC|post_type:post|categories:5"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width="stretch_row_content_no_spaces" el_id="view-all-projects" css=".vc_custom_1542842993551{padding-top: 50px !important;padding-right: 50px !important;padding-bottom: 50px !important;padding-left: 50px !important;background-color: #80bfc0 !important;}"][vc_column][vc_btn title="VIEW ALL PROJECTS" style="custom" custom_background="#80bfc0" custom_text="#ffffff" shape="square" link="url:%2Fexperiences%2F|title:VIEW%20ALL%20PROJECTS||"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width="stretch_row_content_no_spaces" full_height="yes" equal_height="yes" parallax="content-moving" parallax_image="18379" el_id="contact" css=".vc_custom_1546546904934{padding-right: 10% !important;padding-left: 10% !important;}"][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn"]

FRESH COAT MURAL FESTIVAL

LOS ANGELES, CA

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width="stretch_row_content_no_spaces" css=".vc_custom_1544763884472{padding-top: 6em !important;padding-right: 10% !important;padding-bottom: 4em !important;padding-left: 10% !important;background-color: #333843 !important;}" el_id="client-detail-section" el_class="max-width"][vc_column][vc_video link="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Q8dPnrL-Ck" align="center" css_animation="fadeIn"][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn" el_class="light-blue"]

THE SETUP

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn" el_class="grey"]

Hansen’s soda is all about individuality. In a market filled with high fructose corn syrup and other synthetic sweeteners Hansons uses 100% real cane sugar. To celebrate the uniqueness of the Hansen’s brand and creativity or their flavors, Hansen’s along with LRXD wanted to host an event in downtown Los Angeles that would encourage creativity, individuality, and community.

STRATEGIC APPROACH

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn" el_class="grey"]

After many strategic sessions, the idea for the first ever Fresh Coat Mural Festival was born. The event would be a free one-day festival in the downtown LA Art District for people of all ages to come eat, drink, and enjoy live music and art. We hoped that immersing people in the festival would encourage them to embody the Hansen’s brand and to #findtheiroriginal.

EXECUTION

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation="fadeIn" el_class="grey"]
The Pineapple Agency located the perfect block in DTLA and began the complicated and time consuming process of permitting through the city. We then curated the music and street art line-up, booking five national acts including RJD2, Poolside, and Viceroy and 12 of the top most influential graffiti artists in the world to paint murals for the festival. We also partnered with Food Beast to curate finger-licking food truck selection. Each food truck incorporated a different Hansen’s flavor into their special dishes.  

We fabricated custom art installations, a one of the kind “Hansen’s House” lounge for participants to relax in, and branded yard games throughout the block.  The festival was an amazing way for Hansen’s soda to give back to their loyal fans and bring the community together.
