Exploring consumer interest in a shared experience over simply purchasing product.
Trending brands like Equinox, Jackrabbit, Lululemon regularly produce events and work-out sessions to engage prospective clients. Almost more importantly they are creating community and brand loyalty through shared culture experiences.
Traditional shopping has typically been shaped by brand identity and brand loyalty. In recent years, brands are shifting their focus to a more user interactive holistic approach. Consumers, especially millennial's typically aren’t interested in brand heritage and legacy. What sparks theirs and other interests is a total package, which may not always result in a purchased product, but more an overall experience. Whether it be a branded sponsored event, a free yoga class or an instructive seminar the takeaway is more than an actual product.
