SCCA Marketing Awards – 2018 winners announced!

Winners of the Sabina Rust Memorial Prize for Campaign of the Year, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, AMP Capital

Last night, the Shopping Centre Council of Australia (SCCA) hosted one of the most popular industry events on the annual calendar in a spectacular night at Doltone House in Sydney, compered by the vibrant Zoe Naylor of Home & Away and McLeod’s Daughter’s fame… and for the finalists, runner-ups and winners it was a night to be remembered.

The Awards Gala dinner saw the crowning of the ‘best of the best’ shopping centre marketing campaigns – Compelling Experiences, Retailer Marketing, Brand & Partnerships, Innovation and Community Award categories.

After looking at the finalists this year you can certainly see some common themes. Firstly, as we are in the midst of a fast-paced digital world, the down-to-earth community campaigns shine through with goals of helping local communities with common cause. Secondly, in a competitive retail environment, marketers are actively supporting retailers by focusing on driving retail sales and thirdly, technology has changed the way marketers think and do – evident in the campaigns that use technology to engage with customers.

“It’s always pleasing to hear about how far and wide our nominations come from, such a Smithfield in Far North Queensland, down to Bayside on the Mornington Peninsula and all the way across to Bunbury in Western Australia.”, said Peter Allen, Chairman, Shopping Centre Council of Australia and CEO, Scentre Group.

Winners of the Sabina Rust Memorial Prize for Campaign of the Year, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, AMP Capital

This years’ Sabina Rust Memorial Prize for Campaign of the Year went to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, owned by AMP Capital and Commonwealth Super Corporation. AMP Capital is a two time winner of the Sabina Rust Memorial Prize (last won in 2016) the award shows its commitment to marketing excellence.

The Indooroopilly Shopping Centre campaign dubbed ‘The Indro Games’ used technology together with the hype of the Commonwealth Games to create this award-winning campaign.

The Indro Games was one of Brisbane’s key family events in 2018; a convergence of virtual and augmented reality technology with real life ‘child’s play’ to create an innovative, accessible version of the Commonwealth Games. This pioneering activation saw over 16,000 people entering the virtual reality sports ‘arena’ in the ultimate ‘battle of the burbs’. With compelling VIP incentives, Indro Games drove over 9,000 database subscribers over the two-week period and attracted the attention of national broadcasters across the state.

As a Brisbane-first, Indro Games delivered strong results, driving an 8% increase in foot traffic, while sports, kids’ fashion and food retailers experienced a 20% uplift in sales and media about the event reached over 2.7 million people, providing Indooroopilly Shopping Centre with a media budget stretch of over 600%.

The award classifications changed this year to include smaller shopping centres as well as renewed award categories reflecting today’s marketing techniques. Over 179 entries were received this year, which was the second highest number of entries the Shopping Centre Council of Australia has ever received.

Shopping Centre News would like to congratulate all the finalists and award winners for 2018.
