Sephora Malaysia 2013-2014
Challenge: Sephora Malaysia, a beauty and skin care brand under the LVMH group makes a grand entrance in Malaysia with stores opening at Queensbay Mall Penang (April 2014), Sunway Pyramid (October 2013) and Gurney Paragon Mall, Penang (July 2013). The challenge here was to wow its target audiences about the store opening, drive awareness about the arrival of Sephora on the island and appreciate customers.
Target audience: Working executives, predominantly female.
Solution: Days before the store opening at the Gurney Paragon Penang mall, Sephora ambassadors dressed in pink wigs and cute striped socks hit George Town on branded trishaws. In Sunway, the hype was built around surrounding colleges in the Sunway area. The ground activation created an exciting buzz on social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In addition, a giant 20-foot blimp created the buzz in the sky and stopped traffic! The campaign included flyers, OOHM out-of-home media, billboard advertising, and a strong Guerilla marketing drive. On opening day, hundreds of fans queued up for their complimentary door gift, while the Sephora opening party presented an Avant Garde make-up show featuring 24 models, performances by electronica duo, The Empress and non-stop store activities brought in over 300 guests and members of the public.

Second, handle the media relations and communication of its pioneering Sweden Malaysia Innovation Days Forum & Exhibition.
Target audience: High-level government officials, NGOs, corporates, universities, Malaysian general public & youth.
Solution: Go International Group worked closely with the Embassy, Swedish Trade Council and its partners IKEA, Sony Ericsson, Volvo, ABB, SAAB and BAE. Go International Group was also part of the media contingent to Sweden for an Innovation Days media learning trip.
The partnership with the Embassy made the 4th FEYST: Indie Youth Festival a stellar effort! Thanks and kudos to the Swedish Ambassador – HE Per Arne Hjelmsborn for believing in music as the main connector. The embassy flew in singer songwriter folk duo, The Harvest band to perform alongside over 55 Malaysian bands during the weekend at Pavilion KL. The Embassy’s support was so great that many of our musicians gained the experience from talks by Export Music Sweden spokesperson and music executive, Patrik Larsson.
The Embassy also organised a historical Nobel Dinner – a first, ever held outside of Sweden. The dinner was attended by over 400 guests at The Hilton Kuala Lumpur and featured Swedish Chef Michael Elfwing’s expertise in matching wines and courses as close as to what the actual Nobel dinner would have served. Until today, the menu remains a secret.
The entire project garnered RM4m in media value.
