ad pepper took part at the Online Marketing Rockstars festival on the 7th & 8th May 2019 in Hamburg. It was their ninth time in a row as participant and the fifth time as exhibitor at the leading european fair for Digital Marketing.
Those who know us know that we would not miss one of the biggest events where the Online Marketing branch discusses new topics, discovers hot trends and celebrates great parties. After long preparation times and full of anticipation, we left our Nuremberg office and travelled towards the north: next stop Hamburg!
The city showed its best side
… and we started into the first day of the OMR19 with a clear blue sky and sunshine at 6 am. But as you know, the early bird catches the worm! Therefore we arrived on time at the exhibition centre for the construction of our stand. Two of our Peppers had to make a short side trip to the OMR trouble desk because they forgot to bring their IDs for the check-in – Spicy double trouble! The problem was solved quickly and a few minutes later we finally arrived at our stand:
Hall B6, stand E11 became our territory for the next two days.
The packages with all our exhibition equipment were ready and the major construction project „Candy Bar“ started. As 2019 is the year of ad pepper’s 20th birthday, we celebrated a big birthday party with presents for the visitors – a candy bar full of sweets, some balloons and lots of greeting cards. We also had lolly chargers as special gifts for our longtime friends – wireless charging stations in candy style.
Even if the process of installing the candy bar wasn’t that sweet, we were lucky to have our talented Pepper boys with us who installed the stand swiftly.. and the visitors loved the result. Compliments like „What an eye catcher!“ and „Your stand is the prettiest in the whole exhibition hall!“ were daily business. After two days of OMR, our candy bar was swept clean. All in all we can say that the hard work of our marketing team beofrehand has been worth it.
Even if everything went well, we broke a sweat on the first day. The lighting in the exhibition hall heated up the crowd – matching our slogan „on fire“! We cooled down on the second day when the air conditioning system ensured a pleasant temperature. 😉
Besides the chats and conversations with new aquaintances and well-known faces, client meetings and the b-day bash at our stand, the Peppers had some time to breathe „OMaiR“ and to explore the exhibition. The festival for the digital universe has shown its futuristic side: sexy Cyber-Angels entertained the visitors and exhibitors with dance shows. Famous voices and newcomer of the marketing scene as well as international music stars and influencers were on stage. Photo boxes, food trucks and several different show-acts rounded off the exhibition in OMR style.
And after the show is the after party
… entertaining get-togethers with the team and clients to enjoy a friendly beer ended our workdays at the fair.
Online Marketing Rockstars has proved again that it’s an event of superlatives – and hot, hotter, ad pepper was right in the middle.
We were tired but happy on our way back home. OMR 2019 – it was a pleasure. See you next year!
