Monday, February 21, 2011
LONDON, February 22, 2011 - Guinness World Records, the universal authority on record-breaking
achievement, today announces a commercial partnership with award-winning
Event Management Agency, Chillisauce for the Guinness World Records Live!
division of its portfolio.
Guinness World Records, best known for its annual big book of world
facts, created the brand extension Guinness World Records Live! to enable
commercial cliental access to the brand's high value position.
For the first time in the UK, this newly formed partnership will see
Chillisauce and Guinness World Records Live! working with brands to deliver
unique campaigns and events built on the concept of breaking world records.
Adam Wide, Guinness World Records Live! Creative Director elaborates:
"A Guinness World Records Live! event enables any brand to establish,
reinforce or change a marketplace perception. Clients can now carry out
marketing activities such as road shows, challenge fairs, new product
launches or PR stunts - with the backing-power that our brand provides.
Engagement is readily achieved too, while trying to break world records
consumers get completely lost in the moment, we're thrilled while delivering
those small yet significant slices of happiness!"
In addition to the excitement and credibility achieved through the
execution of an event or campaign, clients are able to leverage the community
that has been cultivated over Guinness World Records' 56 year heritage.
Access to its 12 million unique website browsers, 83 million YouTube
viewers, 250 million global TV audience and 180,000 Facebook fans can deliver
complete integration across all consumer touch-points.
William Bicknell, Commercial Director at Chillisauce adds:
"Where this concept differs entirely from the likes of a typical
Experiential Marketing Campaign is that there's no need for persuasion or
convincing. Interaction with the brand is actually sought out and that's due
to the sheer power of the brand, people are completely at ease with it".
Guinness World Records publishes the world's best selling copyrighted
book of all time, selling more than 3 million copies every year. It is one of
the UK's best known and loved brands with a 56-year heritage in documenting
record-breaking achievement and even more interestingly is the most stolen
book from public libraries worldwide!
