IAA Mingle/Seminar: Food with a view - Why Electrolux and top chefs are cooking on the rooftops of Europe.

How can global brands stand out in today’s over-communicated world? What does it take to give overloaded consumers a taste of what you’re all about? Today, “experiential marketing” is a way to engage people’s senses and create a buzz. Take The Cube, a unique “mobile” dining concept created by Electrolux. This gourmet “pop up” restaurant is being mounted on architectural icons in 17 European cities, where new top chefs cook for a select group of 20. Last summer The Cube was installed atop the Royal Opera House in Stockholm, having earlier graced the Arc de Triomphe in Brussels and the Opera House in London. Join us as Olivia Kaye, European Sponsorship & Experiential Manager at Electrolux, shares the thinking behind the project. She’ll be joined by the multiple awardwinning Philip Ahlqwist, Creative Director at Volontaire, famous for the spectacular "Curators of Sweden"-campaign for VisitSweden, to kick off the discussions.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 6, Mingle from 17:30 Program from 18:30; Finish about 20:00. RSVP: By March 4 to email:
