Did you know 78 percent of Millenials would rather spend their money on an event instead of buying something?
No matter what business or industry you’re in, there are unique activation opportunities for you and your brand at live events. Find out how you can leverage live event marketing to grow your brand on Digital Hospitality.
On this episode, host and Cali Comfort BBQ owner Shawn Walchef visited with Chris Biele, director of marketing and digital for AEG Entertainment Group at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego.
In every Village, every town, every city, big name entertainers come to perform their craft. When Madonna, Garth Brooks and LeBron James all played to a sold out Pechanga in San Diego, Cali Comfort BBQ was there to capture the attention and feed those raving superfans.
Chris Biele, his team at Pechanga Arena, and Ernie Hahn, provide opportunities for brands like Cali Comfort BBQ to create unique experiences for the guests who are attending these live events.
“We always run our restaurant as a mini arena,” Shawn said in the episode. “We’re always trying to figure out how do we host something exciting.”
