“Experiential marketing” is the creation of experiences for consumers to engage marketers’ products or services in hands-on ways. “Event marketing” is also the term often used. The business overlaps with outdoor (OOH) media, PR, and social media.
We believe marketing trends clearly show that experiential marketing is a booming industry and we feel BTM is in a fantastic position to continue to grow as more and more marketers turn to experiences to engage consumers in ways that traditional advertising cannot.
We target and service national marketers. Our client roster includes Jeep, CBS, AT&T, Comcast, Foot Locker, Ulta Beauty, and MTV.
