Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
FastFit360, provider of the original social communication solution for fashion, will Tweet-a-Coffee from Starbucks Coffee Company to select attendees who visit booth 2145 at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & Expo, Jan. 13-14, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York.
To qualify to win a Starbucks Coffee, visitors to FastFit360’s booth 2145 simply take a picture of themselves with the “Camera Head” man on the booth’s wall, follow or like FastFit360 on either Facebook or Twitter and then post the picture to the FastFit360 social sites with the hashtags #NRF360 and #NRF14. FastFit360 will then Tweet-a-Coffee to the attendee, who will receive a $5 Starbucks Card eGift, which can be redeemed from a mobile phone at participating Starbucks Coffee stores.
In addition to providing a fun diversion (and caffeine) to NRF visitors, the marketing campaign closely ties to FastFit360’s fashion technology, which leverages social media, mobility and images to enable global communication and speed to market. Camera Head is a tongue-in-cheek nod to FastFit360’s mantra, “images speak louder than words,” representing a universal language for the B2B global fashion industry. The on-site NRF promotion follows a “Countdown to NRF” social media campaign on Twitter and Facebook.
“FastFit360 is excited to introduce NRF Expo attendees to our social communication solution for fashion, and what better way to share our enthusiasm and energy than to Tweet-a-Coffee with visitors to our booth,” said Roxy Starr, executive vice president, design and development, FastFit360. “When we reached out to Starbucks Coffee about our interest in this B2B promotion at Retail’s BIG Show, they were enthused as well.”
Starbucks Coffee Company’s Tweet-a-Coffee program is popular for gift exchange between consumers, and now with FastFit360’s NRF campaign, is making a splash in the world of B2B social media. Last year, NRF’s Annual Convention & Expo attracted 27,600 attendees from 82 countries, and featured Starbucks Coffee CEO Howard Schultz as a keynoter.
The NRF also produces the flagship STORES Magazine for retailers. STORES’ official BIG Show edition, the January 2014 issue, features a case study about Patagonia’s use of FastFit360’s e-sample® process. FastFit360’s solution enables designers, product developers, technical designers, quality assurance officers, sourcing managers and other fashion professionals to communicate globally about apparel workflow, samples, style concepts and garment fit in a real-time, social media-type computing environment. The core technology is based on communicating visually through easy sharing of high-quality images and videos. At NRF, the company introduces Burst for capturing, annotating and sharing videos on-the-fly.
