The Brief 

The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce came to Bodhi & Co. in hopes of making their Greer Arts & Eats Festival a success for the 2nd year in a row. They needed a big push on social media and PR to drive interest and make sure the community was going to be there. With just days left before the event, Hurricane Ian blew in forcing the Chamber to reschedule the event for a later date. The Bodhi & Co. team put all hands on deck to promote the event’s new date and keep the community hyped.


Client Experience 

We wasted no time in amping up activity by engaging with local businesses and local Facebook groups and on Instagram to spread news about the festival. Food vendors, kids’ activities, live music performances, and featured artisans were all promoted to engage all of the different demographics. We specifically targeted the surrounding region and the key hotspots of visitors, to attract new people to the Greer area via digital adverts. In addition we created a set of outdoor print advertising from banners, posters, to yard signs and other signage to promote the event the weeks leading up to the event and on the day of.


Solution & Results 

We landed PR coverage with some of the biggest names and publications in the state. Despite postponing the event to a later date due to the hurricane, over 5,000 people attended the one-day festival. Several local food and art vendors who participated sold out during the one day event. We launched a separate event website, to house all event information and so vendors could submit applications online and attendees could quickly find information. Within the first 30 days, over double the amount of vendor applications were received from the previous year, as well as lots of vendors wanting to return again, due to the great success of the event.
