Describe the objective of the promotion.
The objective of 'Lend Your House To El Tino' was to exceed 2011 sales with a campaign that generated hype and a high degree of interaction with anyone around the country, as Homecenter is a multi-target brand.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Using the strategic idea of 'The Best Excuse for Remodelling Your Home' we came up with the 'Lend Your House To El Tino' campaign. This grew into a platform for participation by any Colombian anywhere to put up their house for the famous ex-soccer player to hold a knock-down-drag-‘em-out party; the ulterior motive was to have 'El Tino' trash their house completely, so he could then say, 'I did all this because Homecenter’s 'Sales Season' is on: The Best Excuse for Remodelling Your Home'. After the dust settled from the party, Homecenter remodelled the house trashed by 'El Tino'.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
'Lend Your House To El Tino' boosted the relevance of Homecenter’s 'Sales Season' because it gave Colombians the opportunity to have one of soccer’s greats in their home, because it increased sales 34% over the 2011 'Sales Season' and finally, because Homecenter completely remodelled the house of the family that had the guts to let 'El Tino' in the door.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
