Bringing People to the Store
The IWC pop-up store in Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay houses the time machine and the actual historical showcases. From the marketing standpoint, it is of paramount importance to convert the online traffic into actual offline visitors to the physical pop-up store. With an activation code of the journey placed on the wall of the pop up store which is designed to be changed everyday, people must be physically present in the store.
Would anyone be more likely to complete the entire journey with an incentive? Definitely! To make the entire experience more rewarding to those who participated, an IWC signature tote bag is rewarded once the participant has finished every checkpoints in the pop-up store.
Completing all the Checkpoints for IWC150 Tote Bag
Besides the activation, there are a total of 3 checkpoints. Each checkpoint can be completed by locating the answers hidden throughout the pop up store. Those answers usually introduce the brand’s watchmaking history. Not only does this interactive experience provide valuable knowledge to visitors in a fun way, it also establishes a stronger brand awareness to the public.
The first checkpoint lands you on a giant screen with the “Time Machine” activation button. After pressing it, you must finish a short video that introduces the history of different prominent IWC watches families.
After you have picked a family of your choice, you proceed to the second checkpoint which is the stair connecting to the upper floor. Here you will be challenged by the chatbot to identify the figure in the photograph.
The chatbot will then guide you to the second floor where the third checkpoint is located. It would require you to examine the watches carefully in order to complete the final challenge.
Finally, you are good to go and redeem the limited IWC signature tote bag from the staff!
