The Sunday Mail Transurban Bridge to Brisbane 2021
After a COVID-induced hiatus in 2020, encourage event registrations to the 25th annual Bridge to Brisbane through promotion of the new route, Early Bird entries, general entries, sponsors, VIP charities, pre-event stories, on the day and post-event stories across earned, owned and paid marketing and communications.
The clever idea
Utilise integrated communications to drive event awareness, interest, excitement, and attendance to the event through storytelling across a diverse range of mediums to engage with past and new audiences. Pivoting and re-strategising was key throughout the campaign, with unforeseen scheduling challenges due to the complexity and sheer size – to pull off Australia’s largest community event since the start of the pandemic.
