Describe the objective of the promotion.
The objective of creating 'the world’s biggest piñata' was to top 2010 birthday celebration campaign sales. This promo was meant to generate an elevated impact and call on any Colombian anywhere, as Homecenter’s brand is multi-targeted.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Starting from the strategic idea of 'a party with gifts for the guests', we created the 'world’s biggest piñata' and called on thousands of Colombians to celebrate Homecenter’s 18th birthday. We loaded it up with over US$100,000 in gifts. We put the piñata on display at key points around Bogota for 3 weeks, and encouraged Colombians from our Fan Page to come and break the piñata, showing up just with a receipt from Homecenter. Over 1,000 Colombians showed up for the piñata smashing and took home gifts: refrigerators, washers and even 2 brand new cars. So we held the first party in Colombia where the guests took the gifts home.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
'The world’s biggest piñata' boosted the relevance of Homecenter’s birthday, because it allowed any Colombian the opportunity to take home gifts ranging from refrigerators, washers, and even brand new cars. This transformed Homecenter into the second most relevant brand for the Colombian population.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
We gained 20 hours of free press on the major networks

We got 256,966 hits on homecenter.com.co

Our Facebook fans went from 8,132 to 21,819 in 4 days

Sales went up by 38% compared to the 2010 birthday celebration campaign

And best of all, Homecenter became the second most relevant brand for the Colombian people
