7 SXSW Marketing Wins: The Best Brand Activations from Austin’s 2014 South By Southwest Festival

Monday March 24, 2014 by Matthew David

Music isn’t the only thing that’s loud at South By Southwest.  In fact, more than ever before, big name brands clamored for the attention of the plugged in, the amped up, and the in-the-know with marketing stunts of all kinds. Here are my picks for the best brand activations from marketers at SXSW 2014. (Looking for even more inspiration? There’s a great roundup of SXSW marketing efforts from the pros at BizBash.)



Oreo’s Trending Vending Machine

Creating perhaps the most cutting-edge cookie ever, Oreo (with the help of Mondelez International) combined hot topic 3D-printing with the real-time chatter of the Twitterverse with its Trending Vending Machine. (Clearly, food is a big thing at South by Southwest.) The high tech machine enabled users to create customized Oreos in one of 12 flavors trending on Twitter, and then watch the cookie materialize in less than two minutes. The company encouraged people to follow along and contribute to the conversation with the hashtag #eatthetweet

Mondelez, the maker of Oreos combined efforts with Twitter to make custom filled cookies. Tweets from the SXSW conference are configured into an algorithm that determines the flavors of the Oreo in an example of the efforts that digital technology i Newslook




An Oreo Experiment Reveals Mondelez’s Approach To Innovation

Oreo caused a cookie stir at SXSW with its Trending/Vending machine, which dispensed custom cookies for fans who waited upwards of two hours for a single treat. But looking behind the machine, and the technology within, is an entrepreneurial approach that’s leading a corporate giant to experiment in new spaces.



This experiment, and it’s most definitely an experiment, was called the Trending/Vending Machine. Staged by Mondelēz, the parent company of Oreo, built by Maya Design, and created in partnership with Twitter, the high concept here is that people could create their own cookie combination based on what was currently trending on Twitter. When visitors stepped up to the translucent touch screen, trending topics such as #hoverboard or #chanceofrain appeared–nodding to an Internet hoax of the moment, and the incredibly rainy weekend in Austin, respectively. Each trend related to a particular flavor combination, and participants were allowed to choose a cookie and a pattern. In all, there were 10,000 possible combinations.

The activation was born of two very real forces within Mondelēz, says Bonin Bough, the company’s vice president of global media and consumer engagement at Mondelēz International. The first was that people really love Oreos. “We realized how much our customers love the various flavors so we wanted to provide something that allows people to customize their cookie,” says Bough, noting that if 2013’s Daily Twist campaign allowed people to see culture through the eyes of Oreo, the Trending/Vending machine allows people to “taste culture” through the eyes of Oreo. Hence the hashtag #EatTheTweet.

From hashtags to tweets our friends Patrick and Jeff from Innovative Vending Solution are in the spotlight again in a big way with their social-media-fueled machines for branding including BareMinerals, Polaroid and Twitter itself.

Writer Lauren Matthews recently published an article for BizBash on IVS and as usual they are busy specializing in fabricating and configuring a variety of tricked-out-automated vending system that can dispense almost any kind of product.

Ideal for product launches and promotional events, IVS’s VP of Operations, Jeff Thibodeau says while Twitter has been the most popular platform so far, IVS has just launched a trade show badge activated machine, and is working on a Facebook-compatible model.

This past summer, Innovative Vending Solutions supplied experience operaimg-2758ted vending machine as part of a cross-country tour for fashion e-tailer ASOS. “In each city, we filled the machines with bags of different items,” says Linda Kovacs, the dFm’s director of partnerships and integrated marketing. “For example, at Lollapalooza they held sunglasses, and at Fashion Week Swim in Miami they were filled with bathing suits.” At the end of each event, the machine—which held 200 gift bags—was empty. “The online feedback was great,” Kovacs says. –
