With the CHARMANT Style Show at the beginning of this year, we took another important step towards digitalization. A virtual trade fair was our digital answer to Opti 2021, which was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Julia Berger, Senior Marketing Manager at CHARMANT for Northern Europe, and the main organizer of the digital event explains: “We wanted to offer our customers a platform on which, despite Covid, they could interact personally with us, get to know our latest collections and take part in training seminars that are beneficial to their daily business.”
Our digital event was well received by all participants - and as it turned out, it also caused a stir outside the optical world! As we know, success is usually the result of good cooperation - in this case, a great collaboration between us and the creative agency that set up the CHARMANT Style Show according to our challenging requirements. For their creation of this cutting-edge digital trade fair concept, the MENSCH Kreativagentur from Munich won double gold industry awards.
“The challenge was to accompany the target group into the digital world from the very first step. To do this, we picked them up on familiar terrain through print invitations and inserts in specialist magazines, and brought them to life using augmented reality,” explain Stephan Gsell, Christoph Bohlender and Matthias Voll, Managing Directors at MENSCH. "We wanted to do something that has never been done before in the industry - and of course we are very pleased that the concept has won over both the trade fair visitors and the awards juries!"
