Land Rover’s dual model launch training at the Arizona Biltmore needed event management and branding efforts that would surpass the previous year’s experience. Sutter Group was challenged with making an annual gathering unlike anything the attendees were expecting. From invitation to on-site experience to commemorative take-home pieces, we delivered the oohs and ahhhs our client needed to hear.
For Land Rover’s launch of the Range Rover and the All-New Range Rover Sport, SG created the event logo, announcements and all training materials, using Land Rover marketing’s tagline, “One Idea. Two Stories” as the theme. Because the event was held in the intense Arizona summer, SG provided staff clothing that was moisture wicking, sunblocking and vented — perfect for 120° days in the shade. We also designed wayfaring signage and provided 1,000 custom glasses for the Margarita Luge during the final night gala. For classroom training and the Lost Rhino Cyber Café, we handled the audio-visual and provided all training materials in print and on CD. Check out the license plate — we did that too!
The environment in which the event takes place greatly influences the creative ideas we come up with. It’s critical that we stand in that space and imagine being a Land Rover brand representative. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to be a huge personal fan of the products as well. We also do our homework to the fullest extent. That’s what allowed us to come up with the idea of creating a passport as the documentation for tracking training participation. Every detail matters at Sutter Group.
