EAST END rocks

  • The Agency for Brand Experiences goes on tour with the drugstore company at summer festivals 2019

ROSSMANN goes on festival tour with EAST END. The agency specialized in brand experiences creates a concept for its new customer at the festivals Southside, DEICHBRAND and Highfield and is responsible for the on-site realization and brand staging.

EAST END convinced with a concept under the motto “Rock&Refresh”, to further strengthen the brand’s presence on the heels of in-house festival appearances over the previous two years. EAST END will present the brand using a selected, festival-proven product portfolio on a 500m² area. A ROSSMANN store is included as well as a specially designed ROSSMANN area where festival guests can create their own personal festival look.

“Festivals are now much more than just a concert experience for music fans. They stand for an attitude to life,” says Petra Czora, Marketing Director. “In this unique environment, we reach our young target group much more intensively than by classical means. That is why we have engaged EAST END to assist us in positioning ourselves even better in this third festival year and inspiring festival visitors with the right range of our products”.

Above and beyond the classic event concept, EAST END actively contributes its communications expertise to the festival tour beyond the events and thus prolong the experience for the target group.

“We are pleased to be able to accompany ROSSMANN to three festivals this year,” says Oliver Golz, founder and managing director of EAST END. “Festivals are becoming more and more popular with brands because they offer a unique opportunity and creative scope for direct customer contact. The perfect environment for bringing the products and brands from the drugstore range to life as a personal experience for festival visitors”.
