Stockmann Mad Days
Stockmann Mad Days is a very tactical Stockmann weapon and
this was also taken in to account when developing a partnership
agreement and a sponsorship strategy.
Stockmann Mad Days
We started our campaign 10 days before Stockmann Mad Days with the
integrated activities in Arena Riga hosting game on 04.10 in Arena Riga
and naming it Stockmann Mad Days game.
Starting from 01.10 – we hade DINAMO advertising campaign [web/
radio] in value of 3000ls announcing that there will be Stockmann Mad
Days game on 04.10.
Arena Riga on 04.10 was overtaken by Stockmann Mad Days:
Stockmann main ghost was placed on top of main Arena entrance
[approx.10 000 people saw it]
2 Stockmann airomans were placed behind goaltender at the breaks
We had special 2 promos at the breaks for fans – the second promo
was unique and first time used in Arena Riga and for DINAMO –

Marketing is much more than just marketing!
Current Stockmann & DINAMO RIGA partnership project results
clearly show that even in the crisis year it is possible to get
return on sponsorship investments by taking well considered
actions. Starting from strategy up to the smallest agreement
details and project activations.
It is important today to look at every marketing project not just
from brand objectives and creativity angle but also from
business point of view – to see return on investments in shorter
or longer period.
Without customers who understand what you represent, who
you are and what is your mission, a brand can become a
