Heinekens latest US promotion launches in March

Heineken's latest US promotion launches in March

Heineken's US unit has revealed details of a new US$10m promotion for its flagship lager brand. 

The 'Take the Stage' initiative will see the launch of a nation-wide sweepstake this Spring, with the winner being invited to a Heineken-sponsored event. This will be either the set of the next James Bond film, DJ-ing at the Heineken House at a music festival, or centre court at the US Open, the brewer said yesterday (23 January). 

The campaign, part of the company's wider 'Legends' initiative, will be promoted through TV and digial ads, off-trade and on-trade merchandising and POS.
