Promos Done Right: Nike’s Hall of Phenomenal

Promos done right

It takes a lot of guts for any company to self proclaim their event as phenomenal, but after experiencing Nike’s Hall of Phenomenal, we have no argument. To celebrate soccer fever, Nike has aligned this event along side the World Cup schedule to launch their new products to the mass market. The World Cup sets the perfect backdrop to introduce their awesome new line of performance soccer cleats and Shoplet Promos was there to check it out!

This week long event took place on Washington and W. Houston street inside a massive event space. Nike transformed this blank canvas, which was free and open to the public, into a soccer lover’s dream.

Nike executed this event in LA, London, Dubai and Paris before hitting NYC. Around every corner, guests had the opportunity to pose, play and practice their fancy footwork all courtesy of Nike. Our first encounter was the photo wall. With the help of promo clad brand ambassadors, guests had the opportunity to take a photo backed by the campaign image titled Risk Everything. The photo keepsake was emailed to each guest at the end of the event. A genius way to make an impact, be eco-friendly and capture consumer data!

As guests navigated the event, they encountered various mannequins, which were decked out in full throttle Nike soccer gear. Almost all of the featured gear was available at the Nike retail bus, which was located right outside the event space.

After taking in some eye candy, guests were able to participate in various challenges and even full blown soccer matches while testing out the new Nike gear. Guests who participated in the daily team soccer matches were able to take home the borrowed Nike uniform they wore to play, as a free gift. Including the cleats! Pretty sweet!
