Govevents.com Reports on Event Spending

You’ve probably noticed that when data is reported from studies – any data – most of the statistics you see cited are 3-10 years old, and you can imagine all the ho-hum reasons why: it takes researchers a while to gather info, collate it, make conclusions about it, publish it, and for it to end up on a linkbait infographic colorful enough to wrest attention away from the royal drool stains (And what was Selena Gomez thinking? These questions haunt us all.). Read more…


National Mall Special Event Permit Update

It turns out that it took about a year for the new special event rules and regulations for permitting the National Mall to sink in and really get noticed. The National Mall has been host to a number of small to mid sized events over the last year, but no events to the scale that the National Mall has seen in the past.

H&R Block “Get Your Billion Back America” Campaign

In early 2014, H&R Block launched an experiential marketing program that builds off their “Get Your Billion Back America” ad campaign. The tour puts the brand in the hands of consumers and rewards them with cash.

Developed in partnership with Ketchum, Decibel Management designed and created a custom, interactive kiosk composed of four computers, multiple touchscreens, cameras and ATM components.

The 20-foot-by-20-foot kiosk is set up in high-traffic locations where participants take a two-minute quiz which includes imagining what they would do with a billion dollars. As a reward, the kiosk dispenses up to $100 per participant.

This kiosk is definitely a first of its kind. It is part ATM, part photo/video booth and was built from scratch for the ‘Get Your Billion Back’ events hosted by H&R Block. And it was built in 6 weeks, from concept to completion.
