Proximus "Outside Office"

Proximus Vodafone, the biggest mobile network provider in Belgium, developped the VMCC card : a network card that allows you high-speed acces to the internet wherever you are. Without wires or a WiFi connection. How can they proof the efficency of this product to companies and give it a lot of attention. As an advertising agency, they decided to set the example. On November 6, 2008, they set up a mobile office for a day. A big part of the agency worked the day in the middle of a field outside the city. Thanks to the Proximus Vodafone network cards, they had full access to their e-mails, calendars, our fileservers, the internet, etc. Everything they needed as an agency to do their job was available to them. As proof, they create a blogsite and had people, working outside, update it continuously throughout the day. ‘The ultimate proof that you can easily access the internet wherever you are', received a lot of regional and national press attention, and was an item on dozens of blogs and websites. The price of this event ( camping gear, a boyscout tent and some french fries) about 500 Euros. Bronze Cannes Lions Media Winner.

Agency: Famous Brussels, Belgium.
