ISLE 9 Kona Brewing Co. sponsorship proposal

The ISLE 9 Collective in partnership with MiLLENNiAL Magazine


An intimate transcultural music and art festival

Where: North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii

When: October 13 - 15, 2017

Who: 1,000 music and art lovers (22-40 year olds) from Germany, California, and Hawai'i

Camp Erdman, i9 Festival Venue

Nestled between the Wai'anae mountains and pristine beaches of Mokulei'a, ISLE 9 returns for its 3rd installment to the remote and naturally scenic oceanside landscape of Camp Erdman on the North Shore of Oahu.

The resulting pop-up space will demonstrate how sustainable entertainment can be integrated within an interactive festival dynamic, designed to awaken the human spirit and inspire personal responsibility.

ISLE 9 fully embodies a "zero waste" philosophy.

All materials used throughout the festival grounds, on the stages and for art installations will be constructed from upcycled materials found on the island.

ISLE 9 Crew builds staging out of wooden pallets.

All ticket holders will be issued a reusable cup for the bar, and no plastic bottles or aluminum cans will be allowed on the festival grounds.


We want to ensure every dollar spent is contributing to the economic wellbeing of local islanders. For this reason, all food will be provided by The University of Hawaii's Culinary Department, allowing students to gain real-world experience by catering the event.

Logo Design by Tape Over

Tape Over artists design the main stage at ISLE 9 2016

The bar will display Kona Brewing Co.'s sponsorship branding in a unique design crafted by sustainable Berlin-based artists, Tape Over. The art team will create the tape version of Kona Brewing Co.'s logo using their specialized technique complete with light enhanced colors to illuminate the bar at night.

Upcycled "Kona Brewing Co." Materials

In addition to branding the bar with a Kona Brewing Co. logo by Tape Over, we'd also like to source any glass bottles or other raw materials from the Kona Brewhouse, where our team can design and build interactive art installations displayed throughout the festival grounds.

Interactive Campaign

Gone are the days of mass blasting a message in hopes of gaining a new customer. MiLLENNiAL offers brands a powerful, integrated and highly sensitive advertising solution that reaches the most targeted and responsive audiences online.

Hyper-Targeted Digital Marketing

Our team works to understand the perfect audience for each client. By eliminating the guesswork, we are able to deliver personalized and relevant audience profiles. With access to an extensive data network, our model maximizes marketing efforts based on identifying these consumer traits:

  • Geography
  • Demographics
  • Purchase History & Intent
  • Topical Interests
  • Hobbies
  • Emotional Triggers

Data Dictionary

260 million US consumer records

300 data touch points

Once we have determined Kona Brewing Co.'s consumer personas, we use the agreed upon attributes to generate a target email list. The first 100,000 emails out of the target list will be used to start the campaign. If more is required, we will continue to pull from our original target list.

Email Processing

Our email campaigns are run through a white label third-party server. There is no click cost associated with interactive campaigns allowing for an infinite number of potential engagements.
