Project: Spa Regatta

Sponsor: Spa

Entered by: Trefpunt Sports & Leisure Marketing

In 1982, when the Spa Regatta was first conceived, Spa was already the leading mineral water brand in the Netherlands, with a 45 per cent share of the market. Spa has been able to use the Regatta as a springboard for product launches and marketing campaigns. Spa currently has 53 per cent market share and 96 per cent spontaneous awareness. Spa believes it has tackled its reputation as a mainly restorative drink and created a more healthy image that is associated with sport and enjoyment.
