Telstra Vantage 2020 Remixed

The annual Telstra Vantage event attracts over 5,000 attendees, and is the biggest single driver of the enterprise sales pipeline year on year. In 2020, COVID-19 required us to reimagine Telstra Vantage as an all-virtual experience, while still delivering stellar content, high attendance, stimulating discussion and return on investment.

Idea

Vantage Remixed

We worked with Telstra and strategic partner CHE Proximity to define a framework that would transfer the Vantage program that customers know and trust, into an engaging online experience. Our foundation was the core of the Vantage DNA; memorable inspiring experiences, solving problems, unlocking opportunities, and sparking new connections.

A remixed opener

The Telstra Vantage Remixed opener kicked off the experience. Using the latest techniques in artificial intelligence and machine learning, we worked with the Australian winners of the Eurovision A.I. Song Contest to create a truly unique version of a well known Australian track. The execution seamlessly merged the benefits of the Telstra network, 5G and AI to deliver an inspiring musical piece that only Telstra Vantage Remixed could deliver.

Creative delivery

In addition to the overarching brand design the Imagination team went on to consult on the UX and design of the digital platform with partners Telstra Purple and Satellite Media. We developed speaker scripts, defined an extensive motion content toolkit, and worked alongside production partner Gravity to deliver a range of speaker content. Finally, we developed a program of social and direct communications for over 40,000 invited guests.


“The keynotes were fantastic - great speakers and very relevant topics. Also the ability to still deliver a complete agenda virtually with no physical venue was great.”

Note20 Virtual Media Briefing

Samsung faced the unenviable task of launching the flagship Galaxy Note20 to the media as lockdown swept across Europe. For tech journalists, access, exclusivity and hands on time with the device is paramount for writing the perfect story; however travel restrictions meant that the usual physical pre-briefing format was impractical.
