Wow, what an amazing whirlwind of a year it’s been! As Vinco celebrates its first birthday and Christmas and New Year are just around the corner, we have been reminiscing about some of the awesome projects and campaigns we have been proud to be a part of over the last 12 months.
First, there was the glittering D1 London Spirits Cocktail Exchange which saw some of the world’s top bars and restaurants from the UK and South East Asia pair up and swap signature cocktails.
Twenty of the most prestigious UK cocktail bars took part, including exclusive members’ club Tape London and award-winning ‘Best Gin Bar 2016’ Merchant House. They were paired with the crème de la crème of cocktail bars in Southeast Asia, such as the Artesian at The Langham (Hong Kong) and Hope & Sesame (Guangzhou).
We have also developed a brand new section for the Select Apartments website that enables clients to order a taste card, book a chauffeur and even order items for their fridge for their arrival. The new system will also text clients as they check into their apartments.
We were immensely pleased to work with two celebrity fashion boutiques, both based in Surrey and also won the role of communications partner for the Bognor Regis Creative Digital Hub project. This is a West Sussex County Council initiative, which aims to create a new collaborative workspace for creative professionals in the West Sussex town. Wired Sussex, who are working in partnership with WSCC, were keen to work with a local agency and we feel very privileged to have been chosen to work on the project.
Our Director, Victoria Hilditch, was also invited to Chichester University to talk to an audience of both local business representatives and marketing students. At the talk she spoke about the big brands that she had worked with in the past and the successes that she had seen, in the hope of motivating and inspiring those looking to grow in the industry.
In between all of the excitement, Victoria managed to bring a brand new baby boy into the world and there are some exciting projects in the pipeline for Vinco next year too! One major change is that the team will move into brand new offices and expand in number – more news to come on this soon, so watch this space!
In the meantime, we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and successful, prosperous and Happy New Year. We are very much looking forward to a 2017 that is as exciting as the year we’ve just had (if not more!) and we hope to see you all again very soon!
