HH AW24 Showcase

Showcasing the AW24 collection to top-tier media at Helly Hansen’s London office.

The Challenge

The challenge was to preview Helly Hansen’s upcoming Winter 2024 collection to specialist and national media, ahead of the official launch – nine months in the future. The idea behind the event was to generate excitement for the upcoming collection and allow us to plan with the media, planning kit reviews, ski trips and detailed expert commentary around the technologies and inspiration for the collection. This event also helped to position Helly Hansen as a leader in kit development for the outdoor and ski sectors, whilst strengthening the brand’s ‘Trusted by Professionals’ message, by showcasing the professional relationships and work with its ambassadors.

Great event last night! Without a doubt the best press conference I've ever been to. Usually, most brands don't lean into the nerdy side of their outdoor gear, which is always a shame (and not very insightful). It was really interesting to find out about Helly's product development, testing and validation, as well as how this actually looks in the field. Cracking stuff.

The Solution

We hosted an exclusive media event at the end of the previous Winter season, to preview the upcoming Winter collection, with the opportunity for media to try out the products, whilst hearing from the Helly Hansen team about the inspiration behind the kit, key features and tech development.

At Helly Hansen’s incredible London office, we invited media to its showroom to join us on a day in January. Attending media got to look, touch and try on what will be available to consumers 12 months later, along with hearing first-hand from the Category Managing Directors on the seasonal focuses, the design process and the explanation around why Helly Hansen is bringing these products to market. In addition, we also welcomed a few of Helly Hansen’s professionals, Warren Smith and Western Beacons Mountain Rescue Team who use the products daily, to explain their relationships and discuss how the professional feedback process works, and why they love and trust their kit.

To round off the event, we provided the media with a Helly Hansen goodie bag to ensure they are prepped for the Winter ahead in the mountains, alongside nibbles and drinks to promote networking and questions before and after the event.
