    New Mission: Volvo Ocean Race Gothenburg 2015

    Volvo Ocean Race is the leading ocean race around the world, and one of the world's most acclaimed sport events. For the finish in Gothenburg in 2015, Stendahls has been chosen as the overall communication agency.

    During June 2015, the major race Volvo Ocean Race finishes in Gothenburg harbour. The event at the finish is more than a finish line. It's a week filled with all kind of activities, sailing competitions in the middle of the city, and most of all: a festival with visitors from around the world.

    The mission that Stendahls has been chosen for, as the overall communication agency, comprises of developing a communication concept, campaign strategy, graphic design, as well as a new website for the event. 

     – Volvo Ocean Race is a world event - where sailers and visitors are welcomed to our city and consolidates Gothenburg as one of Northern Europe's leading event cities. As the main agency for Göteborg & Co, and agency for both Volvo Cars and AB Volvo, this mission fits us perfectly. We have a unique ability to sync this project by developing and marketing both the event and Gothenburg as a world city. We will make the finish something real extra! says Peter Ohlsson, Key Account Manager at Stendahls.

    Göteborg & Co, who develop and market the destination Gothenburg, is the responsible organizer for the race finish in 2015.

    Sharing is caring. Why we love collaborating with students.

    We believe in the power of sharing and that the ones that share will recieve more in return. That's why we collaborate with students from a broad range of schools. We talk about what we know and believe in, and the students give us instant insights on what triggers them as the creatives of tomorrow.

    Our latest student collaboration was when Christer Hedberg did a two-day workshop on creativity and team work together with the brand new event students at YH Göteborg in Gothenburg.

    We flag for equality

    From the 28th of May, to the first of June, Gothenburg plays host to West Pride. A free-of-charge culture festival that works for an equal and including world, free from prejudice and discrimination.

    But rainbowflags are already flying all over the city. For us at Stendahls, we think's it's obvious that in this way show our commitment to an open social climate, that counteracts prejudice and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and/or -expression.

    With the purpose to strenghten and increase the experience of a vacation in Gothenburg, we launched the digital service "A perfect day" in the middle of May - a weather-based city guide that gives tourists tips on activities and experiences - all based on the conditions of the day. If it's raining, experiences best suited for rainy days will be displayed, and if the sun's shining, you'll get customized tips for that.

    The activities in the app if primarly aimed at families with kids, but there's also tips on concerts, restaurants and other events suited for all ages.

    Honourable mention at the Webby Awards

    Stendahls' contribution “My Volvo Magazine iPad” is being honoured as one of the best applications for tablets at the 18th yearly Webby Awards. The honourable mention is from the heavy jury, consisting of media mogul Arianna Huffington, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, CEO of Skype Tony Bates, Instagram founder Kevin Systrom and more.

    – The honourable mention sets the standard for innovation and creativity on the internet. It’s an incredible achievement to be picked as one of the best from the 12.000 we’ve received this year, says David-Michel Davies, head of the Webby Awards.

    The 18th yearly Webby Awards received over 12.000 posts from 60 countries and 50 states in the US. Of all the 12.000 sent in contributions, less than 15% received this honour and an official honourable mention. My Volvo Magazine iPad is a new communication channel for Volvo Cars and aims at Volvo owners on 18 different markets all over the world. It’s a hybrid product between a digital customer magazine and a brochure, which creates an urge to buy through communicating customer benefits in Volvo’s deals without being pushy.

    The idea behind the iPad magazine is to let car and owner act integrated with inspiring editorials and offers. My Volvo Magazine iPad has developed into an exciting digital channel that not only helps Volvo Cars to strengthen their customers relations, but that also works as an efficient aftersales platform. We have previously won Silver in The Swedish Design Awards for My Volvo Magazine iPad.
