The Sustainable Edge: What we did

Sustainable Marketing Services put together a fully integrated event marketing, public relations and event management strategy that included:

  • National coverage on TV 
  • Advertorials in industry magazines such as RCM and Airborne
  • Promotion in the MAAA in-house digital magazine Wingspan created by us
  • Radio advertising on GoldFM
  • Dedicated campaign website attracting thousands of visitors
  • Facebook promotion
  • Marketing program

The Sustainable Edge: What they got

A key objective of the MAAA event was to raise awareness of the association with families and attract the next generation of aeromodellers

Another key objective was to raise the profile of aeromodelling as a sport with a wider audience.

The results speak for themselves:

  • Approximately 3,500 people visited the event
  • The majority of visitors were families and there was 20% increase on 2015 numbers
  • The event generated National TV coverage (see the coverage here)
  • The event showcased the sport of aeromodelling to Melbournians
  • Over 7,300 unique visitors to the Sandown Campaign Website
  • Word of mouth feedback that the event was a resounding success

The F-1 Air Race at Sandown took six months of planning but not every marketing event needs to be on that scale. Even a small event can boost awareness of your brand, a build a valuable connection with your target audience.
