Most Effective Tactical Campaign
The crowning achievement of the night for eXPD8 came in the form of a gold win for the ‘Most Effective Tactical Campaign’ for Tesco Books and the launch of ‘Spare’ by Prince Harry. This was a challenging, high-profile book launch that was under heavy embargo. The eXPD8 team were able to successfully navigate this to launch on Day One, nationwide, dominating Tesco’s front-of-store space and surpassing sales targets.
Operational Success of the Year
eXPD8 achieved the silver award for ‘Operational Success of the Year,’ an honour earned through their work on the challenging Tesco Lightbulbs project. The project, marked by its complexity, showcased the team’s ability to collaborate seamlessly and deliver exceptional results. A huge well done is in order for everyone involved.
Sales Campaign of the Year
The celebration continued as eXPD8 Beauty secured a bronze award for ‘Sales Campaign of the Year’ for Meiyume Retail Solutions. Launching a beauty brand into discount stores is no small feat, but eXPD8’s beauty team, true to their reputation as experts in the field, executed flawlessly. From gap-scanning initiatives to open paths of communications to smart working of deliveries, the team demonstrated their prowess and secured another award for the eXPD8 trophy cabinet.
