Summer of Sport hits the road

Field Marketing Agency Gekko

Leading field marketing agency Gekko supports Freeview’s ‘Summer of Sport’ campaign with a nationwide roadshow.

Summer 2012 is set to be a sporting season to remember and Freeview will be marking this with the tour of its action packed sports activity zone inviting sports fans up and down the UK to try their hand (or foot!) at an array of exciting sports.  The interactive roadshow, devised, managed and staffed by Gekko, will be pulling up at a number of high footfall locations for passers-by to take part in a variety of sporting challenges including football, tennis and archery.  Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to win prizes including a 40” Smart 3D Toshiba TV, enabling the winner to enjoy the jam-packed line-up of sporting action in glorious high definition from the comfort of their sofa.

In addition Gekko will be deploying a promotional guerrilla hit squad on behalf of Freeview.  The team will be promoting the Summer of Sport messaging at key locations during  the Euro 2012 and Wimbledon tournaments and throughout the London Olympics in July and August.
