San Diego, CA (May 9, 2014) - Eventful, today announced it received the GOLOCAL Award from BIA/Kelsey in the strategic use of digital marketing category for the campaign titled, “Something Scary Could Be Heading Your Way! Be The First to See FOX’s Sleepy Hollow In Your City. Demand it!” for FOX Broadcasting Corp.

Winners of the inaugural GOLOCAL Awards, sponsored by Balihoo, were announced May 8, at BIA/Kelsey’s LEADING IN LOCAL: The National Impact conference, in Atlanta. The GOLOCAL Awards recognize the most successful local marketing initiatives deployed by national brands.

In anticipation of the series premiere of FOX’s Sleepy Hollow, FOX Broadcasting Company ran a unique, integrated digital marketing campaign with Eventful to pit city against city to win the chance to see the series premiere before it aired. Eventful created a digital and social media marketing campaign for fans to rally their city to win the advance screening. The top four cities with the most “demands” won. During the course of the campaign, over 30,000 fans in 2,972 cities participated, generating over 18 million social media impressions and 1.04 million trailer views. The campaign was ignited through a blend of online ads, rich media, email, social sharing integration, mobile and live event elements, resulting in a successful launch for the television show.

“We wish to congratulate Eventful on its exceptional national-local campaign, and thank all the companies that participated in the GOLOCAL Awards, and our expert panel of judges,” said MacKenzie Lovings, VP of marketing, BIA/Kelsey. “Our GOLOCAL Awards celebrate the creativity and results of local marketing initiatives and bring a new dimension to our coverage of the national-local marketing opportunity.”
