Percept digitICE creates a unique Virtual Product Launch and Order Booking Module for industry leader Sintex-BAPL Ltd
Percept ICE, the Special Projects, Events and Experiential Marketing Domain Company of Percept Limited, conceptualized and managed the Sintex Product Launch and Order Bookings on a Virtual platform earlier this month. The Digital launch event saw a digital attendance of over 400 visitors pan-India, with the show achieving the dual objective of launching four unique new Sintex products and enabling on-the-spot Online Order Bookings for their Distributors.

The Virtual Sintex Product Launch and Sales Module event was conceptualized, designed and managed by Percept digitICE, the Full-Service Digital, Virtual and Hybrid Experiential Marketing & Events Unit of Percept ICE. The scope of work entailed communication, design, integration of clients marketing tools including social media, digital platform development and execution, video content creation, product launch sequences, green screen shoots, event packaging, creating a live Order Booking module and unifying all of this into a 3 hour live capsule.

A key highlight of the event was the integration of the Online Order Booking while simultaneously curating and managing Zonal Rooms which were further sub-divided into additional specific zones addressing immediate audience queries on the secure digital platform. This not only helped address individual retail queries but also drove confidence in the new product launched thereby propelling bookings. A Live Leaderboard also showcased zone wise sales mapping which helped the brand keep tabs on the targets achieved during the tenure of the launch show.

Karan Singh, COO, Percept Live shares Sunburn’s journey & many initiatives undertaken during the Lockdown Phase in 2020 along with Industry Stalwarts with Impact Magazine
Curation of mixed reality experiences is the future, say experts as the experiential sector looks to rebuild itself and recover from an estimated Rs 3 lakh crore loss. While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted almost every business across sectors, the experiential sector arguably remains the hardest hit. The pandemic has not only affected the live events industry but has also hit the brands reliant on experiential marketing. However, with new emerging technologies, the industry has received a new lease of life in the form of online platforms. In the past few months during the lockdown, the industry has ramped up its digital presence considerably and has pushed the envelope with innovative formats. The new normal has resulted in a shift for the experiential sector that is now increasingly curating hybrid experiences for consumers. The challenge though remains for brands who rely heavily on experiential marketing to build emotional and sensory intimacy with consumers. Across the board therefore, brands and industry leaders are seeking new ways to stay connected with consumers through mixed reality experiences.

Sunburn, one of the most popular music events was pulled off virtually at Vagator in Goa last year. The concert which was previously attended by 300,000 fans took place with only 20% of the venue capacity in 2020. Percept Live which organises Sunburn every year, also launched various innovative music IPs including ‘Sunburn @Home’, ‘Bollyboom @Home’, ‘Sunburn Home Festival’, ‘Sunburn Select’ and ‘Sunburn Campus’. “While Percept did incur a tangible loss of business in our on ground MICE, activations, experiential and live music events domains, we also sensed a massive opportunity to scale up and offer events in the digital space,” states Karan Singh, COO, Percept Live while adding that the company’s live stream variants received an overwhelming response from both the fans and sponsors. “We also launched Percept digitICE – a full-service digital, virtual and hybrid experiential marketing and events unit, which has already done hundreds of virtual engagements and digital events, mixed reality and hybrid events for many clients since the lockdown with great feedback and reviews,” he adds.

PERCEPT LIVE’S SUNBURN HOME FESTIVAL - Percept Live, creators of Sunburn, the EDM festival, unveiled ‘Sunburn Home Festival’, a virtual two day mega music festival with a host of virtual entertainment experiences. The virtual show was presented by Magic Moments and co-powered by Fastrack, in association with event partner Bookmyshow Live.
