YOTAPHONE 2 Launch in London

 

029 made it happen within record time!

YOTAPHONE launched its new smartphone with two front sides in Europe for the first time.

An exclusive pop-up store and a press conference should help to gather speed in conquering the European mobile market.

The Launch event in London is followed by Benelux, Italy and Dubai. More information: www.yotaphone.com

029 maintained 12th place in W&V, Horizont and FAMAB rankings

The magazines W&V, Horizont, and our industry association FAMAB re-issued the event ranking by splitting up in- and outbound revenue.

Therefore, results of 2012 and 2013 are not comparable.

As 2013 was a quite an average year for the industry, 029 is especially proud that we kept our 12th place and managed to even increase income and agency size.

Congrats to the top ones and thanks to our clients for growing and being with us!

Pringles - right in the middle of Party Tour 2014

What is summer without festivals? What are festivals without Pringles and 029?

The Summer Festival Tour 2014 covers the following festivals:

Festival internacional de Benicássim (FiB)
Benicássim, Spain

Rock Ibiza                                                                                              Ibiza, Baleares

029 opens new office in Stuttgart

The ongoing success of 029 has called for a second home in Germany! The South of Germany will now also receive a dose of the unique passion and expertise of 029. The new office in the west of Stuttgart will offer the full service portfolio from experiential marketing to business, premium, and incentive travel. 

 

 

029 brings Down Under to the Hessentag

This year, Hessen's oldest and largest state festival "Hessentag" received a taste of Down Under with a fun "Aussie" promo executed by 029. Complete with surfboards, sun-loungers, a truck with partner branding (DM) and traditional Australian elements, the promo area invited guests to kick back Aussie beach-style and also find out more about the products. Promoters sampled over 3000 samples of the 4 Minute Miracle Hair Mask and took over 1000 Polaroids (distributed in customized Aussie frames) of old and new Aussie fans.

WELLA - all about hair! Hair&beauty in Frankfurt.

This year's hair&beauty/Hairworld trade fair and world championships were a homecoming for Wella. Taking place so close to Wella's origin Darmstadt, the 3-day-event in Frankfurt, Germany called for a special program and - of course - celebration. 

029 was tasked with the complete planning and execution of the 2000 sqm+ fair booth as well as all side events such as the opening of the Wella World Studio in Frankfurt, the ITVA (International TrendVision Award) at Hairworld, the gift.ed experience for top Wella educators, a brand evening event for Sebastian as well as an unforgettable Tropical Baroque night for Wella's DACH customers. After an exciting few days of interaction, information, inspiration, and entertainment for the brand, we were proud, thankful, and sure of one thing - Hairworld rocked!

029 welcomes BHF-BANK's most valued partners and clients

BHF-BANK values and cherishes the relationship with its investors and top clients. To personally  thank and celebrate them, they were looking for a holistic event concept that reflected exactly what these relationships are about: their mix of traditional and modern values, their quality of service, and the special attention that they pay to the customer's needs. 

From this baseline, 029 designed and executed the exclusive 120-person-event, focussing on elegance and quality. Through an artistic event design and unique program, the guests were offered an intimate experience with various 5-star and VIP extensions and space to network and communicate. The outcome: an inspired group of guests that celebrated into the night, a satisfied client, and an event set-up that is so sustainable it will be used again in the future.

029 shows how to break the ice with customers

To support the re-launch of the Mexx Ice Touch fragrance in an innovative way, 029 came up with a cool idea - literally. Executed within the framework of an internal meeting, the project surprised and excited the Mexx staff with a simple idea: winning tickets - frozen into a massive block of ice - and the fun challenge of carving, melting, picking, and smashing to claim their prize.

029 makes Christmas a bit more charming

Finally feeling home...

After months of settling in, we really got familiar to our new home.

Surrounded by inspiring shops like The Listener, Lieblings, Design House Stockholm, spoiled by culinary restaurants and just a two minute walk to the heart of Frankfurt city, we really did not regret the decision to move. Feel free to visit 029’s castle at Stephanstrasse 1, 60313 Frankfurt.
