The Challenge

Over the past years, Duck Brand® Duct Tape has introduced over two hundred new prints, patterns, and colors and has added a new customer base – the Crafter. Duck Tape® was looking for a way to engage these consumers, promote the Duck Tape® message and bring the brand to life with interactive and high-touch experiences.

The Solution

  • The Duck Tape® Rolls Across America Tour is designed to create brand awareness and consumer engagement, gain mind share across multiple channels (consumer, trade and media), and drive sales at retail locations. The custom, bright green, 31’ DuckBus is making its’ way across America to duct tape enthusiasts of all ages. The mobile marketing tour experience features a variety of fun, interactive activities – both inside and outside the bus.
  • Inside the Duck Bus includes These Activities:
    • iPad stations and a touch screens allow guests to interact with all-things Duck Tape®, learn about how the product is made, see just how strong it really is, and watch tutorials about how to make fun “Ducktivities.”
