The company holds its manager’s conference annually, but 2012 marked the first time it was open to the public. More specifically, PowerUp Rewards members. That said, there was a chance, however slight, that we’d leave somewhat disappointed, either because of low attendance, a lack of games or both.

Thankfully, the expo delivered on all fronts. Not only was GameStop pleased with the number of people who showed up, but the video game industry was out in force. Nintendo brought the Wii U, giving players the chance to go hands-on with the system…”

Silence Echoes in San Francisco as H&M and Largetail turn to PUSH Marketing & Promotions

Posted on

On November 10th, over 330 PUSH Marketing & Promotions event staff silently paraded through the picturesque streets of San Francisco.  From Haight-Ashbury in the 1960’s to 2011’s Fashion Week featuring Bay Area avant-garde design houses, San Francisco has long been known for its emphatic embrace of art and style and fashion.  No surprise then that as Hurricane Sandy devastated New York and much of the eastern seaboard sending millions scrambling for shelter and forcing Swedish based H&M to hurriedly revise plans for its intended Silent Manifesto March that it turned to San Francisco as host.  Though the launch may have moved cross country, H&M remembers those suffering and rebuilding throughout the East Coast offering customers the ability to donate directly to American Red Cross relief efforts throughout its retail locations and online.

With a mere seventy-two hours to prepare for the cross-country change of venue, H&M and Largetail, the New York based provider of cutting edge branding promotions and digital content, turned to PUSH Marketing & Promotions.  As the one company with the resources necessary to provide event staff on short notice, PUSH Marketing & Promotions, North America’s industry leading live marketing event staffing agency, went into action mobilizing 330 male and female event staff models ranging in age from 18 to 40 along with 30 team leads, including Briana G., Candace S., and Bailey S., through its proprietary web based technology.  In nothing short of a feat of logistical and organizational legerdemain PUSH Marketing & Promotions successfully executed the campaign.

Since 2004 H&M, the worlds second largest fashion retailer known for its focus on fast-fashion for men, women, teens and children, has combined its world leading brand with the worlds’ most desirable designers.  And 2012 brings the boldest partnership yet as H&M teams up with Maison Martin Margiela.  The Silent Manifesto March commandos paraded through the streets of San Francisco announcing H&M’s latest fashion collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela and its message of the democratization of high fashion for the public.  Black clad event staff wore white aprons drawing attention to Maison Martine Margiela’s re-edition of more than seventy of its iconic styles for men and women.  Available beginning November 15th, 2012, Maison Martin Margiela deconstructionist design tradition of eccentric, ground-breaking fashions arrive in H&M’s more than 230 retail locations worldwide.

Paris based Maison Martin Margiela was established in 1989 by Belgian born founder Martin Margiela the reclusive and mysterious designer advancing the traditions of the Japanese movement of avant-garde deconstruction and coming out Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts.  Though no longer under the leadership of its founder, Maison Martin Margiela continues to drive high concept haute-couture fashion to its uttermost limits.

History illustrates the ultimate power of the people to engage in protest marches as a form of communication that bears undeniable power to affect the course of human events.  The Silent Manifesto March signals Maison Martin Margiela’s retrospective of its illustrious history.  Representative designs updated with modern shapes and materials bore labels with a unique tag identifying the season of its original design over the Maison Martin Margiela’s twenty-four year history.   Partnering with H&M to bring the retrospective collection and its focus on playfully re-interpreted fashion allows Maison Martin Margiela to bring their message of cutting edge fashion to the public.

In leading fashion cities from Paris to Hong Kong to Dusseldorf to the city-state of Singapore, H&M’s Silent Manifesto March launched the Maison Martin Margiela collection in eight countries around the world.  In San Francisco, chosen as the sole U.S. city hosting the Silent Manifesto March, event staff dressed in black and white held signs bearing the H&M logo as well as various incarnations of Maison Martin Margiela’s distinctive label on their way from San Francisco’s Pier 3 in the historic Embarcadero and locations throughout San Francisco to H&M’s downtown location.  Snaking their way through San Francisco in an eye catching silent ‘protest’ event staff embodied PUSH Marketing & Promotion’s attention to professionalism and dedication, ensuring H&M’s partnership with Maison Martin Margiela is the fashion launch heard round the world.

If you want, need, just got to have the hottest Halloween parties with the wickedest models parading around in diabolically delicious costumes, then Maxim Magazine’s Devil’s Cut Halloween Extravaganza was the place to be this year. Taking place in cities around the nation on the weekend of October 26-27th, 2012, Maxim’s Halloween parties have quickly become the stuff of legends. The hottest venues in the country with the best music, the hottest models, premium Jim Beam Devil’s Cut bourbon, the sexiest costume contests and the best prizes are the ingredients that transform just another holiday party into the premiere Halloween event in the country. Across the nation Maxim’s Halloween Extravaganza raised the temperature with sinister delight. Clad in red and black costumes event staff models bore their horns with delicious intent mingling and greeting partiers, welcoming them to a hellishly glorious level of the Underworld not seen since Dante’s Inferno.

Some legends are born. Some created.

Like that mythical encounter between the divine and the devilish, Maxim Magazine, already renowned for its ability to inspire and engage readers with its bevy of beauties and hedonistic sensationalism, raised the bar for celebration once again as the magazine teamed with Jim Beam’s Devil’s Cut to provide an atmosphere replete with the human panoply of temptation; an epicurean buffet of sight, sound, and taste that left attendees buzzing.

The Empire Lounge in Detroit and Columbus’ Park Street Social Room were the places to be as event staff from PUSH Marketing & Promotions handed out Jim Beam Devil’s Cut promotional materials. In Dallas, the Zouk Nightclub played host to event staff models sashaying through the crowded revelry snapping photos with patrons and causing devilish sensation. From Millesime in New York to the Sensu in Indianapolis to the Jet Hotel & Lounge in Denver and Philly’s G Lounge, no one was safe from temptation as horned hotties sauntered through the party delivering their enticing message and brand promotion.

PUSH Marketing & Promotions, the nation’s premier event staffing company, joined with TEAM Enterprises to act across multiple venues in multiple states to provide Maxim quality event staff. Meeting highly specific quality requirements, PUSH Marketing & Promotions readily exceeded TEAM Enterprise’s event staffing standards, even providing emergency event staff backups at the last minute for competitors’ no-shows. Resulting in a coordinated promotional and branding event that engaged and delighted consumers throughout the country and left a lasting impression for its professionalism, its energy, and its enthusiastic attention to superior standards.

Florida and D.C. based TEAM Enterprises creates strategic programs through its over 400 full-time employees and 6500 event staff in every major city around the country to provide a unique, creative and consistent branding that directly engages your consumers in unforgettable experiences. Through proprietary technology and unequaled scalability, TEAM Enterprises ensures a national exposure that carries a consistent messaging through advanced employee and ambassador training programs.
