Product launch at the European Congress of Pathology

Sakura Finetek and EVERYWOW
Sakura reached out to EVERYWOW to amplify the impact of such an important reveal. With 116 exhibitors, Sakura had to compete for the attention of the congress visitors.
Together with EVERYWOW, Sakura decided to increase the reach of the product reveal by broadcasting onto several screens at the trade fair. Based on Sakura’s company history, a Japanese Samurai warrior opened the reveal ceremony. The launch continued with speeches by the CEOs and the live reveal of the advanced staining system. The audience could watch the event from close-up or from numerous screens around the trade fair. This way, the important moment was made accessible from every angle and grasped the attention of passing by visitors.
The highlight video produced from the event recordings served to amplify the event’s impact on social media, thus attracting more attention.
