Freddy Voodoo
There are many reasons why clients return to their suppliers and Creative Collective is an established front runner in their field which sets them apart from the rest. Being able to tick all the boxes by paying attention to detail while assessing and executing the client’s bespoke brief is what they do with so much pride. Going the extra mile and considering future development of any custom/themed event does not happen often in the entertainment industry and I am convinced they achieve this with ease and this is why Creative Collective have been awarded their acclaimed accolades and awards. I believe the exquisite standard and legacy of Creative Collective will forever thrive. 🎖🎖🎖🎖🎖

Paula Gruben
In 2016 I was hired by Creative Collective as a freelance copywriter to write / edit / proofread press releases & other PR material. Maia was an absolute pleasure to work for. Clear briefs, minimal changes, quick approval times, & best of all - no waiting for / chasing up of payments. Maia is a consummate professional. She is an incredibly create, forward-thinking businesswomen who goes above & beyond to deliver world-class products & quality service to her clients. Events, promotions, cutting-edge brand activations, slick in-house design - she & her team take care of EVERYthing. I cannot recommend Maia & her company highly enough.

What makes a successful experiential marketing campaign?

A successful campaign is one that resonates with the target audience, drives foot traffic, increases brand awareness, & generates positive buzz. We achieve this by combining creative storytelling with strategic planning & execution along with quantifiable data to support the stats - this is a great event not because we say it is but because the stats shows it is.

How long does it typically take to plan & execute an experiential marketing campaign?

The timeline can vary depending on the complexity of the campaign. A straightforward activation might take a few weeks, while larger, more intricate campaigns may require several months of planning.
