Saturday gave us the perfect weather and resulted in just over 30,000 visitors! In fact just over 65,000 over the three days!
Thanks for all you help and support in putting together a compelling creative and media campaign, which I’m sure helped our numbers this year.
The media coverage was exceptional this year, which kept us all extremely busy at the show, and we got some excellent national and regional TV, print media and radio coverage.
No doubt, we will undertake a fuller review of what went well and what could be better so we can build on the success of this year. But for now, it is good to celebrate in a successful show!

INNOVATORS IN DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY
Canetis Technologies Ltd is a British innovator of disruptive technology that delivers significant savings for consumers and businesses by improving heating and hot water efficiency. The Canetis group is focused on developing and investing in low carbon technologies that will deliver attainable and realistic reductions in energy usage and set new standards in energy efficiency.
Canetis Technologies chose Sans Frontiere Marketing to bring its brand to market and develop product branding for its range of disruptive technologies.
Our work to date has been focused on the creation, design and development of the website www.canetis.io; the creation of a series of Homeowner, Installer and Building Services videos; email marketing; PR; social media management and exhibition material for a presentation at Energy Innovation Exhibition, Looking to the Future at Portcullis House, Westminster.
If you have been working on developing a new product and are looking for a creative partner to work with you to bring it to market we would love to hear from you.
Sans Frontiere was engaged by Brighton Racecourse to conceptualise a Spring campaign for their Season Opening Race Evening.
The campaign was targeting a slightly younger demographic of Brightonians and was aiming to emphasise the social aspect of the races.
The creative was used across digital advertising, social media campaigns, posters, outdoor advertising, newspaper and magazine advertising.
Epayslipsecure is a payslip generation and distribution and employee communication software solution.
To launch their product, Sans Frontiere created a strong brand identity and collateral including a website, brochures and video.
Sans Frontiere created a brand strategy approach to identify a brand positioning, a set of unique brand values and a brand mission statement that would differentiate Epayslipsecure from the competition. The brand had to appeal to a range of potential customers so we ensured flexibility and versatility while retaining a strong sense of brand integrity.
We created brochures, a commercial website to showcase the product and launched a digital online advertising campaign to drive traffic.
Ferroli decided to step up its presence at PHEX Chelsea, the year’s most important trade event for plumbing & heating installers, and asked Sans Frontiere to design and manage the build of a new exhibition stand. A combination of our stunning design, project management skills and network of trusted suppliers delivered a highly successful event.
From the client’s brief on how they envisaged this exciting project, we developed the leopard branding that we had recently designed for Ferroli to create a visually stunning concept that would be impossible for visitors to miss; at the same time, the stand had to user-friendly for both potential customers to find out more about the boilers on display and for the staff manning it.
We then thoroughly researched potential companies for the manufacture, build and installation of the stand and put forward our recommendations to Ferroli. From our many years’ experience of commissioning high value exhibition stands, we were able to both explain why the lowest cost option would not be fit for purpose whilst knowing that it was not necessary to choose the most expensive. This knowledge is invaluable for a one-off event that involves such a financial commitment – it’s got to be right first time.
Very close liaison with the chosen stand build company every step of the way, right up to being there on the big day when the stand opened to visitors, ensured that the stand was delivered on time according to the brief and that the event was a great success.
With the huge rise in online university courses, the potential for forgery and theft of education certificates has also grown and this means that increasingly sophisticated technology and strategies are required to keep the awarding bodies one step ahead. Security print company Smith & Ouzman’s innovative new web portal Ecertsecure, which offers awarding bodies flexible ways of personalising, proofing, printing and distributing certificates, provides precisely the protection needed. To communicate this clever product to awarding bodies all over the world Sans Frontiere delivered a four-minute ‘how to use’ video, a landing page and a four-page brochure.
Before embarking on this project, the most important thing was to acquire a full understanding of how Ecertsecure works. No matter how complex the subject is , we always ensure that we know what we’re talking about!
Ecertsecure is actually easy to use when you know how so we used our design and copywriting skills to produce a succinct A4 four-page brochure and a dedicated landing page branded with an eye-catching image that made it clearly definable against Smith & Ouzman’s other products.
The key to the success of the campaign was the production of a four-minute ‘how to use’ video that could be viewed both on the landing page and on YouTube. Armed with our thorough understanding of how Ecertsecure works, we produced a storyboard and commissioned the production of the video from a trusted supplier. Very close liaison throughout the process ensured that the final cut perfectly summarised everything potential customers needed to know about the product and how it could protect both their students and their reputation.
Since we created our first online interactive game for pump manufacturer Wilo UK in 2013, it’s become a regular feature of our marketing strategy for the company. For 2015 we created Wilo Code Breaker, supported by a suite of printed marketing collateral and a low-cost PPC campaign.
The format of ‘every pump purchased is a chance to play & win’ has become well known amongst Wilo’s regular customers and awareness of the games has continued to spread by word of mouth to attract new customers.
Wilo Code Breaker works on the simple yet enticing premise of ‘crack the code and open the safe to reveal your prize’. We developed the creative concept and built an animated website featuring a safe which, upon entering the unique data from their pump purchase, would open to show which prize had been won – a range of cash prizes or useful Wilo merchandise.
The creative concept was developed into a comprehensive suite of printed marketing collateral for the merchants trade counters to include an A5 leaflet, twist & lock counter top leaflet dispenser, A2 poster, window sticker and advert, plus a voucher wallet and envelopes for prize fulfilment, all strictly in line with Wilo’s brand guidelines.
To launch the game we designed and built an HTML eshot and ran a low-cost PPC campaign to ensure that players could find the game online via Google. We then managed the game in-house to monitor entries, dispatch prizes and communicate with players on Wilo’s behalf.
Wilo Code Breaker is a perfect example of how we combine the skills and expertise of our creative designers, back-end and front-end digital developers, digital animation specialist and account management team to produce an eye-catching and effective online marketing campaign.
