Looking beyond the parties and craziness that Spring Break comes with, brands are focusing on Spring Break as an opportunity to connect with tens of thousands of college students in a meaningful way – and in this case, it is by allowing students to experience their brand in a way that directly correlates to what Spring Break is all about: “fun”.
Popular brands such as Rockstar Energy Drink, Mountain Dew, Four Loko and countless others have all taken advantage of popular Spring Break destinations including Panama City Beach, connecting with students in a relevant way in the hopes of building long lasting brand loyalty.
Brand activations may include concert-style stage set-ups, comfortable beach lounges, product sampling and of course, plenty of music, while hotel pool decks are also decked out with stages, DJ music, and branded booth ‘look and feel’ set-ups.
Brands see Spring Break as a vital contributor to their word-of-mouth success. Activations that are able to engage with students via any form of an experiential tactic are more likely to succeed in having student “influencers” take that brand experience back home to their college friends on campus.
Brands that offer more “engagement” and allow for someone to “experience” a product are more likely to succeed. For example, Rockstar Energy Drink not only gave away free product samples during their month long promotion in South Padre Island, they conducted a variety of daily contests and beach entertainment, giving away valued swag which in turn really connected with students.
