at High Point Market
foot traffic generated leveraging location intelligence
The industry leader in manufacturing custom designed, premier luxury furniture, Summer Classics and Gabby, have established a presence at the world’s largest furnishings industry trade show, High Point Market. High Point Market comes alive in the fall with an abundance of attendees. Many of the visitors are designers and decorators, but with the size of the Market and tens of thousands of people exploring the venue, how can Summer Classics and Gabby identify those designers and attract them to visit their showroom?
Entice high-end designers and decorators to visit the Summer Classics and Gabby interactive showroom. How do you target the 177,000 interior designers and decorators who live within the general US population (336,000,000)? It’s like a needle in a hay stack, right? Not anymore.
Blu worked with Summer Classics and Gabby to launch a location-based marketing strategy that built an addressable audience targeting designers and decorators from the last five years.
The audience was built by collecting mobile IDs identified within the market geographic boundaries during event dates of past shows. We added visit threshold patterns to narrow our audience to fit the pattern of decorators and designers. Once all of the audience parameters were set, we were able to identify 27,876 past attendee devices that fit our criteria. We used Facebook and the digital display network to send targeted ads directly to those devices with a call to action to visit their showroom.
