What do we do?
Quantitative and qualitative (and often integrated) consumer research into the impacts of experiential activity. We have dedicated strands that cover live, digital, business, retail and concept offering the most comprehensive evaluation of experiential activity available. See the EXP Blog for a broader understanding of what we do.
There's a temptation to overload experiential activity with brand messages. The thinking is that a longer interaction means that consumers will be able to absorb more messages compared with more traditional media. Think again - delivery in an experiential setting should be about depth, not breadth.

Outputs: Research was carried out in '08,'09, '10, '11 which allowed year-on-year comparisons. Results were shared with the Maltese Travel Association and sponsors and used to develop a case study for the MTV marketing department
