  • Needed to drive attendance across broad range of age and ethnic groups in Southern California.
  • Needed to break through crowded competitive landscape of local attractions targeting limited family budgets.


  • Had to represent a multiplicity of Fair experiences in a 30-second TV spot buy.
  • Required executions in both English and Spanish.


  • Launched "OC Fair Effect" campaign concept, where elements of the OC Fair stay with you, everywhere you go. 
  • Created multiple :15 TV spots, allowing for back-to-back "mini campaign" spot rotation within :30 media buy, and digital video pre-roll usage as well. 
  • Produced all TV spots MOS, for easy English and Spanish versioning (VO talent swap-out only). Practical and cost-efficient.
  • Implemented multimedia strategy for high reach across LA/OC metro areas through TV, radio, digital, OOH and newspaper.


  • Registered unprecedented CTR of 8%-20% in digital pre-roll.
  • Posted record Opening Hour attendance of 34,168 guests.
  • Registered a 24% increase in Opening Day attendance (year-to-year).
