What is the Marketing Objective?

Associate brands with one of the fastest growing sports and its famous riders, increase brand awareness among people interested in cycling/wider community (during the biggest event in the cycling calendar). Plenty of branding opportunities ranging from naming rights, pre-event promotional activity, famous riders tweeting, interactive activations, to branding on top of marquees to hit aerial footage of the Tour itself, etc. etc. Encourage interaction between your brand and visitors to the Fan Parks through sampling, entertainment and interactive activities inside the Parks.

How does it work?

The Grand Depart of the 2014 Tour de France will be in Yorkshire and the final UK stage (stage 3) will finish in London after 560km of racing. This unique year of Tour de France in the UK represents a significant opportunity for partners to interact with an estimated total of over 500,000 Fan Park attendees. Plus sponsors will reach at least 15 million additional consumers and cycling fans through broadcast media and social media.
