This campaign (created by Posterscope Germany, Carat and partners) is a brilliant example of creating excitement and audience engagement around a major, and local, sporting event. For the UEFA 2012 Final, adidas, sponsors of both finalists FC Bayern München and Chelsea FC, turned Munich into a giant polling booth. Fans in Munich (and globally via avatars) selected their teams through a series of ‘choices’ within a designated competition zone, such as pressing a button on a storefront, taking a certain set of subway stairs and even which ice cream sprinkles or coffee cup they choose. Votes were tallied and updated in real-time to a dedicated micro-site, whilst a vast 3D animated projection on a shopping centre facade showed the teams’ popularity ranking. More than 300,000 football fans participated in choosing their team….and you can bet it wasn’t Chelsea.
What better way to promote the new Acer Ultrabook and demonstrate its many features, than bring it to life using real experiences? The Acer U-Experience tour was an integrated experiential campaign created by the Posterscope network, which took place in the UK, France, Italy and Germany.

The Go Compare OOH campaign (planned and bought by Carat and Posterscope) is a great example of how using smart creative can generate huge social media traffic.

Another great adidas campaign demonstrating their passion for sport, created by Posterscope USA and Carat.

For the dog lovers amongst us, dog food brand Beneful turned a New York subway into an interactive dog park using a 64-foot interactive motion-tracking digital billboard.

With this OOH activity Nike continues to innovate using technology, social media and audience participation.

Here P&G and Walmart showcase mobile social and a real-time commerce initiative working hand in hand. @PGMobile trucks were positioned throughout New York in heavily trafficked areas but instead of simply tweeting their locations to potential customers, Twitter users were able to tweet requests to bring the trucks, replete with product, right to their apartment or office, taking customer service to a whole new level!

This interactive billboard in Dubai was created by energy drinks Go Fast in association with Skydiving centre Skydrive Dubai and featured a Jet Pack Man flying around the installation for 30 seconds. If you were to multiply the cost of the 30” flight by the campaign length, it really would be the most expensive billboard ever.
