Collaborating floriculture organisations launched the international campaign ‘Fill the distance with beauty’ in September. This campaign was designed to create a buying impulse to somewhat offset the big losses suffered in the early months of the Coronavirus pandemic. The campaign has now ended and has been evaluated. Here is a summary of the results.
Fill the distance with beauty was rated highly during these exceptional times. Of all respondents from the main target group, 73% said they found the campaign personally relevant and 83% described it as attractive. They gave the campaign a rating of 7.8. This was the average figure across the four participating countries: in the United Kingdom it actually achieved 8.5. The PR activities such as the Flowers and Plants Bicycle Drive-Thru and a cinema packed with plants also contributed to these pleasing results.
