For the first time, Locala won a Creative Media Award presented by MediaPost in the Mobile Media Category!

After two rounds of judging by a panel of industry experts, our Subway Campaign came out as the winning campaign in the Mobile Media category. The campaign leveraged real-time location based targeting to boost foot traffic into Subway’s restaurants. Consumers up to 400 meters from a restaurant location saw a unique ad with a tailored message displaying the distance to a nearby Subway restaurant. The campaign objectives was to achieve 200,000 visits to the store locator but the campaign exceeded the goal by 31% and acquired 262 160 visits within 30 days. The results delivered a 46.72% uplift in visits to Subway restaurants across France.

This award is given to the most creative idea that drove a campaign along with all the execution of this idea, including process of buying, planning, and the strategy.
