MKTG INC LDN Sets Up in a Pub

without comments

2013 was a big year for MKTG INC London – new faces, new business, and a new office space. We’re now very excited for what 2014 has in store.

Here are some highlights of what’s going on across the pond:

It’s only fitting that the London team kLondon Officeeep true to the British spirit by setting up camp in what was once a pub – The Jolly Coopers.

Nestled on the corner of a cobbled street and surrounded by some of the oldest buildings in London, MKTG INC LDN is pretty serious about this whole old English charm thing. There’s still some work to be done to make it home sweet home, but we are definitely settling nicely into our new office!

Along with our new digs, there are a lot of new and exciting opportunities happening for the London team at the moment.

In November, we set out with one of the world’s biggest Football (Soccer) Clubs, Manchester United, on the a 6-month global Trophy Tour. MKTG INC will cross 4 continents, traveling 96,000 km to 31 cities with a super smart, portable museum showcasing the Premier League trophy and club artifacts.

Hong Kong's Cutest Fan

So far the team has hit Santiago, Chile and Mexico City as well as the recent Asian leg of the tour, which finished in Hong Kong. Coming up in mid-January, India is next!

Last month, we wrapped up the year with our Lumberjack themed holiday party and got to spend some quality team bonding time over a couple games of Moosical Logs. I’m telling you, nothing brings great minds together like a campfire sing-a-long. While that statement might not be 100% true, I can say without a doubt that the MKTG INC London team could not be more excited for what is to come in 2014.

We’re For Holiday Parties

with one comment


MKTG INC NY revived Warhol’s Factory party at its Warholiday last Thursday. Pop art images were hung around the wall and the iconic silver balloons drifted across the ceiling. It almost felt like Warhol was there as partygoers wore blonde and brightly colored wigs at the photo booth. Of course, the Factory won’t be complete without art– partygoers created personalized pop art holiday cards to send to family and friends.

The Warholiday truly lived up to the legendary Silver Factory!

MKTG INC SF & LA took their party to Neverland!

The SF office spent the evening with MKTG INC LA and members of the Diageo team aboard Forbes Island- a floating island located off of San Francisco’s Pier 39. The night was full of great food, plenty of drinks and exceptional company. It was the perfect way to send off 2013 as we head in to the New Year.



Chicago’s finest celebrated the end of another great year at the local speakeasy, Green Door Tavern. While some city folk don a suit or dress and go to a gala, we decided to get in touch with what makes this city so great: good people, a nice cocktail and a roaring fire. We drank, we ate, we laughed, and most importantly we didn’t walk more than a block in the cold. And of course there was the white elephant where we continued the annual tradition of swapping different types of booze. ‘Twas a classy christmas soiree.




Date:  Monday, 9th December

Time:  5:00PM

Location:  Skylodge @ The Hothouse, 274 Richmond Road, London, E8 3QW

Blow-torched marshmallows and hot rum-cider toddies welcomed the MKTG INC London team upon arrival to the Skylodge – a pop-up experiential dining haven set up by the culinary creative collective, Platterform.

After a few rounds of nine-inch nail banging, (one of many lumberjack games in store for the night) a spread of “Lumbersnacks” began a 4-course feast. Mac’n’Cheese, Maple Hot Wings, and Baby Back Ribs were among the appetizers, so needless to say the team had some calories to work off. Luckily there was an intense game of “Moosical Logs” yet to be played.

However first, MKTG INC enjoyed a beautiful campfire acoustic set by London band, Fawn, while snuggled up in blankets during the final course: a maple and berry pancake dessert. Guest appearances were made by the Abominable Snowman and a strange lion before the end of the night when all the little lumberjacks went home to hang up their plaid shirts.

MKTG INC Paints the World Green ☘

NYC_St.Pat'sWritten by: Chrissy Tully

It didn’t rain on our parade this year, but it did snow. New Yorkers bared chilly temperatures on Saturday to watch Bagpipers, Irish Step Dancers and emerald-clad revelers march down Fifth Avenue for the 252nd St. Patrick’s Day Parade (but who’s counting?!). Whether you are Irish or just look good in green, a great time was had by the thousands of people flooding the parade route and pubs from 44th Street to 79th Street. After all, a winter storm can’t stop the Irish from having fun!

Parades, festivals, music, food and of course, Pubs!  When you mention St. Patrick’s Day here in the capital those are the first words that come to mind.  With a HUGE parade kicking off at noon from Picaddilly and marching through London to Trafalgar Square where the festivities continue until about 6pm.  The parade is led by a giant dragon and features jugglers, charitable groups and marching bands from all over the world.  Once the parade has finished Trafalgar Sq is transformed in a festival in itself with bands, comedy acts and dance performers.  Food carts are serving traditional Irish food and beer as people fill the square and celebrate St. Patrick of Ireland.

Saturday, 10:00am: A glorious sight – a leprechaun wearing a jet pack on the Chicago River. Wee little man ended up in the river on this cold, cold day.

Saturday, 10:15am: The Chicago River is dyed green as thousands watch…it’s stunning just how green the water gets.

Saturday, 2:00pm: At Harry Caray’s restaurant in River North, a mediocre cover band plays Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” while a group of drunk girls attempt to dance in front of the stage. This restaurant was especially packed for the day, with most sporting hideous green outfits.

Sunday, 11:00am: A glitter-bombed sewer cover the morning after the Saturday celebrations on Michigan Ave and Ohio Street.

1 Apple = 213 Karats

without comments


How much would you pay for a computer with no monitor, keyboard, or even a power supply? Try $213,600—or £133,250—the fetching price for the original Apple 1 computer at Christie’s in London last week. That’s 425 times the original price of $666.66 for a computer that goes 1000 times slower than the iPad.

Too slow? Sorry, there’s no app for that.

Ralph Lauren celebrates 10 years of digital innovation by creating a 4D experience on the facade of their flagship store in London. The impressively elaborate light show projected transformer-like shifts of the building to create a runway for 4 story tall models, product displays, and a game field for some gigantic… you guessed it, polo players!

Ping Me

without comments


Here in New York, we recently saw a bunch of pianos set up around the city for people to play.  Now, the group that organized London’s pianos last year (we’re round two) is putting up ping pong tables all around the British capital.  Called “Ping!“, the project is the kickoff to the countdown to the London Olympics.  100 tables are set up in parks, museums, and even St. Pancras and Heathrow.
