More than 80% of fans recall our trays and the messages on them. You just can’t say that about other in-venue media.
Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) March 15, 2010
BRANDed, LLC, a sponsored food tray producer, is partnering with the WHEAT THINS brand to produce the first campaign of its kind for NCAA® March Madness®.
During this month’s NCAA March Madness, Kraft Foods’ Wheat Thins brand has teamed up with sponsored in-venue food and beverage tray producers, BRANDedTRAY™, to provide fans with more than exposure to out-of-home advertising, by offering fans a "brand experience."
According to a recent consumer research study conducted by Sponsorship Research International (SRi), BRANDedTRAY has demonstrated a more than 15% greater net awareness than in-stadium signage, and almost 40% greater awareness than in-game promotions. “Our product works,…” reports BRANDed TRAY Senior Vice President, Tom Flynn. “…more than 80% of fans recall our trays and the messages on them. You just can’t say that about other in-venue media.”
BRANDedTRAY’s will be featured in 18 NCAA March Madness Men’s and Women’s basketball venues with a combined attendance estimated at 1.7 million.
“We’ve run sample campaigns before,…” says Kraft Foods Brand Marketing Director, Michael Tilley, “…but with BRANDed TRAY’s help, we’re thrilled with this opportunity to delight people with Wheat Thins in a new and unexpected place. And, it reinforces our effort to showcase Wheat Thins as a delicious snack with toasted whole grain crunch.”
“We’re putting brands in their hands…,” explains Thomas Piccolo, VP of BRANDed, “…and in this case, a tasty one, at that.”
