EXPERIENTIAL EVENT CASE STUDY


Automobile Manufacturer Event - Strengthen Sales, Educate, Motivate

BUSINESS CHALLENGE:

New vehicle product is almost always revealed to dealership owners and manufacturer employees well-before the floor salespeople or the public.  An exciting new model was forthcoming to Land Rover.  A Regional Marketing Manager of Land Rover North America wanted to create a sales volume contest entitled “Road to the Factory” for regional and dealership sales managers to compete for an unprecedented opportunity to preview the product first-hand prior to its reveal in the USA marketplace.

OBJECTIVE:

  • To enhance brand knowledge and increase sales ability for all products, while providing an incentive to increase sales of current models 
  • To provide the new model product preview in UK (country of origin) prior to its reveal in USA marketplace 
  • To reward and educate top regional and dealership sales managers of new product design, features, and drivability
  • Provide first-hand experience of complete product line production

SOLUTION:

A 3-month sales volume contest of current product in southern region. Top 25 dealer sales managers and regional manager hosts qualified for event.
