Brand Experience Boosts Sponsorship: The BNY Mellon Boat Race | Purity
amplifying sponsorship through brand experience

The BNY Mellon Boat Race

BNY Mellon approached Purity to raise awareness of their sponsorship of the men’s Oxford vs. Cambridge Boat Race, and of Newton Investment Managements sponsorship of the women’s race.

Purity recruited and trained a team of 40 brand ambassadors that were responsible for distributing over 80,000 branded keepsakes on race day. The teams operated in Putney, Hammersmith and Mortlake creating excitement amongst the huge crowds. Purity produced balloons, bam bams and flags.

Alongside this Purity supported the BNY Mellon hospitality teams by organizing the registration and gift bags for invited guests. Purity was responsible for sending out invites with unique bar codes that enabled guests, once registered, to collect their gift bags from site at the event. The bar code was scanned directly from guest’s mobile phones. Over 1,500 guests registered for bags. On the day Purity’s guest registration team supported BNY and Newton volunteers with this process.
