Continental, the leading German tyre manufacturer, has appointed BEcause to deliver an experiential marketing campaign to elevate its upcoming sponsorship of the Prudential RideLondon festival of cycling, taking place at the end of July.

The leading German tyre manufacturer is an official partner of the 2016 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic race which, now in its fourth year, is considered one of the world’s top cycling festivals. The campaign will see BEcause Experiential Marketing deliver live brand experiences for Continental at dedicated festival zones in Green Park, St Paul’s and Kingston over the race weekend.

The live activations will include a virtual reality experience that will provide spectators the opportunity to virtually cycle the actual course through a bespoke 360˚ video, bringing the course to life for fans in highly immersive fashion.

Founded in 1871, Continental is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of tyres. The upcoming experiential campaign aims to bring to life the grip performance of Continental’s tyres, while also raising awareness of the brand’s car tyre offering.
