Not many brands around the world care about their consumers beyond the transactional customer-brand exchanges. Most, as long as revenue numbers are high and profit margins are in good shape, pay lip service to truly engaging their consumers.
But not “33” Export; Nigeria’s No. 1 friendship beer brand connecting and delighting consumers all around the country through its signatory consumer activation event, the “Friendship Experience Party”.
The “33” Export Friendship Experience Party is a thriving platform through which the brand has and still continues to deepen friendships while helping Nigerians create beautiful memories that transcend normal day-to-day relationships.
Conceived to provide unique friendship experiences whilst creating opportunities for consumers to bond, party and create memorable moments as explained by Emmanuel Agu, Portfolio Manager, Mainstream Lager and Stout, Nigerian Breweries, the friendship experience parties highlight the brand’s commitment to creating moments that matter to consumers across different divides.
The “33” Export Friendship Experience Parties are typically activated at bars, clubs and restaurants close to the consumers across the country, thereby attracting even more interest in the parties and demand for the No. 1 Friendship Beer.
Already in 2018, the friendship experience party train has made several stops in different cities including Calabar, Port Harcourt, Lagos, Jos, Uyo, Benin, Aba, Onitsha, Warri, Owerri, and Yenagoa with more cities lined up to experience the friendship thrill.
Whether female or male, having and spending quality time with friends is a good thing. It is a well-known fact that People with a wide network of friends have less tension, suffer from less stress, have stronger defences and live longer.
In fact, according to Julianne Holt-Lunstad, professor of psychology and head of a study at Brigham Young University, on the relationship between friendship and longevity, “Not having a social support network can be a higher death risk than obesity or leading a sedentary life without exercise. The studies have shown a 50 per cent increased odds of survival if you have a solid social network.”
Working off a consistent storytelling platform like the Friendship Experience Party, ”33” Export is helping friends and loved ones spend quality time together, create long-lasting pleasant memories and even live healthier and longer.
As part of the friendship experience parties, consumers participate in engaging games like Jenga and Connect Four to test the intellectual capacity of the participants and get rewarded with prizes such as refrigerators, standing fans, power banks and a host of others.
There is also the economic benefits enjoyed by host cities of the friendship experience parties. The parties which are typically activated at bars, clubs and restaurants close to the consumers in the host city result in a boom in sales for the relaxation spots owing to the human traffic witnessed at such venues.
Indeed, the “33” Export is leading the pack among beer brands in Nigeria with a consumer-friendly initiative worthy of emulation, and it comes as no surprise that hardworking Nigerians across different divides have embraced it.
Through the Friendship Experience Parties, consumers are able to build valuable relationships with friends and loved ones and also network with new people while connecting with the brand at a deeper level.
