Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The railjet is Austria's most modern, comfortable and environmentally friendly means of transport. Its only competition is the car, so we positioned a real life train at an autoshow, for the first time ever.

Creative Execution
To steal the show from cars with a real life train in their own territory.

Results and Effectiveness
The railjet was exhibited at the show for 4 whole days.
Some of the 50,000 car fans queued for over an hour for a chance to take a look inside the train.
The story was reported by the press across the whole of Austria.
Heated discussions took place on Twitter, Facebook and on various car forums.
At the stand roughly 1,000 ÖBB advantage cards (an annual half-price ticket for frequent travellers) were sold.
A month after the show, the railjet was still the most popular train for travel on the Vienna-Salzburg line.
