Bayer Advanced Selects AMP Agency as Event Marketing Provider
AMP Agency will assist Bayer Advanced TM in Developing First-Ever National Experiential Marketing Tour to Support DuraZone® Weed and Grass Killer Product Line
Bayer Advanced, one of the leading consumer lawn and garden brands in the United States, has selected AMP Agency, an integrated communications agency, to develop the DuraZone Weed and Grass Killer Own Your Zone event tour.
The DuraZone Own Your Zone event marketing tour will showcase the new line of DuraZone Weed and Grass Killer products developed to help consumers protect their landscapes from weeds. The tour will launch in Phoenix at the Maricopa County Fair on April 13th and traveling across the country over the following two months with events in top markets nationwide, including: Dallas, Houston, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, DC and Philadelphia.
“Bayer Advanced created this tour to show consumers how easy it really is to “own your zone” at home and beat the weeds this summer with one application of DuraZone Weed and Grass Killer,” said Steve Fasano, head of consumer marketing at Bayer. “We are confident that AMP Agency’s creativity and innovation will help consumers see the fun side of lawn care and gardening while displaying product effectiveness.”
The tour will recreate three key home and gardening zones – a patio, driveway and lounge area – allowing visitors to see the effectiveness of DuraZone products first hand through on-site product simulations and education.
“Over the last 15 years we have seen tremendous results from our experiential marketing campaigns, and we look forward to applying our expertise to help launch the DuraZone Weed and Grass Killer product line,” said Gary Colen, CEO of AMP Agency. “Bayer Advanced has developed a truly innovative line of products, and we’re excited to help them introduce the line to consumers nationwide.”
