Describe the objective of the promotion.
Even though 2010 FIFA World Cup was held in the continent of Africa for the first time, the limitations and the low marketing efficiency of South Africa made us turn our eyes to people in the world, by moving the scenes and the fever of World Cup football stadiums to football fans in the world. Our ultimate objectives were:
- Building innovative and global image to Hyundai by introducing a new and innovative culture of cheering.
- Maximising brand experience by highly increasing the engagement and interactions between consumers and Hyundai.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Our concept was to let people to "Feel the game," as if they are at the stadium cheering for their teams, not having to go to South Africa. So we created the Hyundai Fan Parks and offered the opportunity to enjoy the World Cup by providing venues and large screens in 30 cities from 19 countries for 31 days. Giant screens broadcasted all the action from South Africa, while group cheering boosts the festive mood. Visitors to the Hyundai Fan Park got involved in various festive events and programs, music concerts, games, contests and awards.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Hyundai has valued that new thinking makes new possibilities. So, we came up with two "new thinking" ideas for the 2010 FIFA World Cup:
1. You don’t have to go to South Africa to feel the fever of the football stadium.
2. Sponsoring games and players are traditional sponsorship, but too old-fashioned. Be an innovative sponsor where we support the fans.
Through those, we could bring the World Cup back to all the football fans in the world and give them an experience of the cheering event that they’ve never seen before.

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