A car drives out of the Heineken pallet island

Flashing lights, illuminated tube, and 3D effects – these are the most distinctive elements of our pallet island for Zlatý Bažant radlers, which are now catching attention in Slovak stores. Among other things, the display has a relatively unusual function of prompt rebranding.

The display highlights a summer consumer competition in which customers can win a hybrid car and another 500 prizes. “Our effort is to make shopping for the target group, which in this case is very broad, more attractive, and more pleasant. That is why we designed the display to impress not only lovers of radlers, but also those who buy radler for someone else, and they will be attracted especially by an attractive win,” explains Lukáš Maťko, the Trade Marketing Manager from Heineken Slovakia.

The appearance of the pallet island is based primarily on a constant key visual. Its upper part is dominated by a blue light tunnel, of which a car model drives out, evoking a feeling of three-dimensionality. “We wanted the island in the sales area to stand out among the others. We needed the message to be clear and striking for customers at first glance and to involve them in the competition. Over time, we can see that thanks to appropriately interconnected interactive elements and lively design, we succeeded,” says Ivana Krajčiová from Heineken Slovakia, who was in charge of this project.

To fit the island into the sales area and meet the parameters of the store, it is not accessible from all sides as usual. Instead, it has an unusual rear wall thanks to which it takes less space. Anyway, we did not have to reduce the area where the radler cans are displayed.

Technically, this permanent island is adaptable so that it can be rebranded if necessary. “This is the first display with this useful feature that has appeared on the Slovak market. If the manufacturer decides that he wants to promote another type of goods, the display can be adapted in a few simple steps, very cheaply and promptly.

The pallet island now attracts customers in 20 selected Tesco stores, for example in Bratislava, Nitra, or Banská Bystrica. “Once installed in stores, we encounter a variety of reactions – from the usual ones, when people want to know details about the competition, to the more skeptical ones, when the customer says: ‘We can never win a car.’ The fact is that the display attracts attention, shoppers do not overlook it and they stop at it,” adds Lukáš Maťko.
