Aperol aperitif seek Experiential agency
Steve’s breakdown: For those looking to go global and/or get into the booze biz via experiential marketing, here’s your chance. Contact Creativebrief to see if you can get in. You’ll probably be the “wildcard”.
The brand has approached Creativebrief to help with the process and is in talks with a variety of agencies, but is not looking to be approached directly by agencies.
The brief is understood to span events and experiences, like Peroni’s House of Peroni, as well as day-to-day tasks.
Gruppo Campari owns a stable of alcohol brands, including Wild Turkey, Appleton’s Rum and Skyy Vodka, as well as Campari itself.
Aperol’s popularity in the UK has soared in recent years; sales at Waitrose rose 800 per cent in 2014, thanks to the popularity of the Aperol Spritz cocktail, which also includes soda and Prosecco.
In January last year Aperol became Manchester United Football Club’s global spirits partner.
Although the drinks are both bitters, Aperol is distinct from Campari, having a lower
alcohol content but more sugar.
Gruppo Campari did not respond to requests for comment.
