Case Study


A sport brand wanted to target athletes and their teams, commercial sponsors and visitors to the 2016 Olympic Games. As well as targeting key local venues and accommodation in Rio during the games for guests to read at their leisure, we devised an international airline lounge placement programme, whereby copies were placed at gate services and lounges globally, with a focus on future host cities. Copies were available to anyone making the trip to Rio, be they from Tokyo, LA or London, allowing fantastic visibility for this brand amongst their core audience of sporting professionals and sports fans.

Luxury Retail

Working closely with the team responsible for the print collateral for a luxury London department store, Gold Key Media put together a highly targeted distribution plan to target UHNWI internationally, to encourage them to shop instore or online. This involved a variety of our most exclusive routes to market, including 1st class airline lounges, private jet centres, private members clubs and luxury 5* hotels where this affluent and influential demographic will frequent.

Ladies Lifestyle

Supporting the re-launch of the market leader in this sector, Gold Key Media produced a comprehensive distribution strategy to capture this publisher’s core audience throughout their daily lives, to help grow familiarity and affiliation with their title in this competitive space. This sees copies are supplied regularly to gyms, coffee shops, hair and beauty salons, corporate offices and universities, as well as hotels and spas.
