Describe the objective of the promotion.
Promoting the sturdiness of Rimowa suitcases.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
It is increasingly common to have problems with your luggage when you travel. Bags are damaged, stolen or end up in wrong destinations. Worldwide, many people resort to services that wrap a film around your luggage to protect them. We developed an action that took place in the main airports in the country on the eve of the Easter holiday. A man completely wrapped in that film typically used to protect bags, shuffled around pulling his unwrapped Rimowa suitcase.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Consumers had contact with the action at the moment when they are more concerned about the safety of their luggage: the airport before travelling. The action’s joke got everyone to see in a light hearted way how Rimowa suitcases are resistant.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The action drew the attention of thousands of passengers in airports and ended up on social networks. Rimowa got perceived as an extremely resistant brand.
