CASE STUDY

Cutting Through White Noise
at a Major Event

NUA Robotics

Israeli startup NUA Robotics has taken smart luggage to a whole new level by creating a suitcase that will follow a user around hands free. It is controlled via mobile app.

Mission

Our team was tasked with generating media coverage to support NUA Robotics’ presence at the 2016 Consumer Electronic Show (CES). The challenge for us was that the product was in the early prototype stage. Add to that the fact that CES is a zoo featuring thousands of exhibitors and you have a recipe for getting lost in white noise.

Tactics

We began with the knowledge that tech media coverage tends to be driven by a select few outlets who influence the global conversation. We also concluded getting NUA away from the chaos for private audiences with media was key, so we booked meetings with big outlets before CES even began.

Results

Our view of tech coverage as elite driven was supported by outcomes. Once a couple key outlets shared the news about the product, hundreds more picked it up. By the end of CES, there were more than 150 media placements in over 25 different countries, including the USA, Great Britain, Canada, Israel, Malaysia, Poland, Japan, Australia, Singapore, Colombia, France, Russia, Germany, Holland, Nigeria, Thailand, Italy, China, Japan, Spain, India, and Vietnam among others.

Thanks to our work NUA was covered in top outlets such as Engadget, Travel and Leisure, SlashGear, Business Insider, The Daily Mail, Le Figaro, Mashable, Huffington Post, The Daily Telegraph, US News and World Report, and more.

Having seen the high volume of coverage around CES, Shaquille O’Neal mentioned NUA on TV claiming he wanted a suitcase the moment he could get one.

In part because of all the media hype and buzz we generated, NUA has been approached by several large luggage makers and investors.
