WHAT IS SONY?
Sony is one of the biggest manufacturers for electronic devices. Its diversified business includes consumer and professional electronics, gaming, entertainment and financial services. Sony launched their Extra Bass as the perfect headphone or speaker to listen to Electronic Dance Music.
Sony wanted to be more present with their Extra Bass products to their young target group, both online and offline globally.
To promote their Extra Bass product line, Sony partnered up with Spinnin’ for a big campaign to present the products as the perfect tool to listen to Electronic Dance Music. Amsterdam Dance Event was the perfect time to reach thousands of people who are part of Sony’s young target group.
Amsterdam Dance Event is the biggest global gathering in Dance Music, attracting 395.000 visitors from over 90 countries, and the place to be for brands that want to be active and relevant for the Dance Music target group. As the biggest dance label in the world, Spinnin’ Records is present during ADE on multiple locations hosting various events, including the Spinnin’ Popup Store, Club Spinnin’ and the Spinnin’ Academy.
During ADE, Sony was present at all Spinnin’ activities and they were also integrated in the communication afterwards. At Club Spinnin’ and the Spinnin’ Popup Store, Sony was present with their Extra Bass products and through fun games the fans were able to win some of those products. This resulted in thousands of people in their young target group to engage with the product line and through a huge social campaign and aftermovies on YouTube over 4,4 million social impressions and almost 200,000 YouTube views were accumulated.

Club Spinnin’ was a series of three club nights and a day program at AIR Amsterdam.
