Describe the objective of the promotion.
Drive brand while selling millions of bottles of Absolut. Defend the brand against price-offs in the busy holiday season.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
We developed a number of implementation concepts, and they were all executed. The Rock energy field also inspired local markets later on, but none of them are included in this entry.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Absolut have been doing end-of-year promotions for several years now. Absolut Rock Edition were used by more markets the the previous ones, and outsold them by millions.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
In retail environments relevant to Absolut, using traditional POS material is almost impossible. The bottle itself is always relevant. Therefore, using the bottle as the main point of communication is the best way to make sure that the campaign is implemented on hundreds of thousands of outlets.
