The Marketinis Are Coming

The Marketinis Are Coming

Much like Sally O’Malley from SNL (“I’m 50!”), the Oklahoma City chapter of the American Marketing Association is proud of the fact that they are 50 this year, too. So proud, in fact, that they chose to throw a big party to celebrate both the anniversary and their annual Excellence in Marketing Awards.
Of course, in planning an event of this magnitude, a killer theme is required. Flashing back 50 years, we find ourselves in 1962… Mad Men times… Sleek and swanky with a cocktail on the side. This is The Marketini.

The Marketini


To promote the April 20th event, AMA OKC enlisted the expertise of vi marketing and branding and ROBYN Promotions to develop the look and feel of The Marketini and to create an invitation that would catch people’s attention. The end result would make Don Draper drool!
While vi designed the oh-so-cool retro logo, ROBYN sourced plastic martini shakers that light up. To turn it up to 11, though, the invitations were printed on both sides, rolled up with a custom cigar band and placed inside the shakers. Then, the ROBYN assembly team carefully shrink-wrapped 500 of these masterpieces, labeled them and mailed them to marketing and communication professionals across the state.
This is just the beginning, though. As soon as the Marketini shakers began showing up in people’s offices, the Twittersphere lit up! Not only were peopletalking about how cool they were, they were taking pictures and posting them. Talk about exposure… Word-of-mouth… Going viral. This is how it’s done!

So, the big question now is… Did you get yours? Perhaps it “disappeared” somewhere between ROBYN’s distribution center and your in-box. Well, here’s your chance to get one of these limited edition shakers for yourself. We have a few extras and we would love to share with you. Just click the link!
Tickets are still available for The Marketini on Friday, April 20th, at Will Rogers Theatre. With a cocktail hour sponsored by Evolve Research, an elegant dinner created by the Western Concepts chefs, Excellence in Marketing Awards hosted by Drew Schroeder of KISS-FM and an evening filled with dancing to the music of the Heather Nelson Trio, The Marketini is bound to be the swankiest event of the spring.

See you there!
