Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball With Coca-Cola Uses In-Venue UGC Display To Amplify Social Buzz

Jessica WilliamsLast Updated: Christmas, Entertainment, Events, Telecommunications

To kick Christmas off in style, Capital teamed up again with Coca-Cola to host the Jingle Bell Ball, the biggest Christmas party in London’s iconic O2 Arena. The event, which started in 2008, has always been a festive hit, with tickets this year selling out in under an hour. With a 16,000 capacity and performances from Ellie Goulding, Years & Years and Little Mix, the Jingle Bell Ball was an event not to be missed.

To excite fans and keep them fully engaged during pre-show, ad breaks and presenter slots, Capital showcased authentic user-generated content on-stage across a huge impressive curved screen as well as three interactive pillars.

THE SOLUTION

To amplify the social buzz around Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball with Coca-Cola, Capital used the Wayin platform to build, curate and display the very best authentic UGC in real-time during the pre-show and throughout the evening.

Attendees were encouraged to share their snaps before and during the event, using the hashtags #CapitalJBB and #JBBStage, in return for the exciting chance to be featured on-screen. Using the platform, Capital were able to filter relevant brand and user-generated content from Twitter and Instagram searches to publish out to the screen.
