DALLAS – June 11, 2013 – Freeman, the premier partner for integrated marketing solutions for live engagements, today announced the official launch of experiential marketing agency FreemanXP. FreemanXP is the new brand name for the entity which, a year ago, aligned the capabilities, skills, and talents of Immersa Marketing, Digital Solutions, Freeman Creative (formerly ProActive), and EventMark.
FreemanXP operates as a boutique creative agency within Freeman, offering exceptional strategic and experience design services in support of new and existing Freeman customers. The FreemanXP portfolio of integrated solutions includes event strategy, experience design, program management, production, digital & social media integration, entertainment marketing and measurement solutions.
“The event marketing world continues to evolve, and as our client’s needs change and expand, we are evolving to meet their needs,” stated Joe Popolo, Freeman CEO. “A year ago, we tapped industry veteran, Chris Cavanaugh, as President of this new division. FreemanXP is now a fully realized global practice in direct response to client demand for strategic and creative solutions.”
“We are able to leverage Freeman’s experience, stability and global reach to bring a new value proposition to the marketplace,” said Cavanaugh. “We have amassed some of the best talent in the industry aligned around a single goal; to elevate and advance the category.”
To help clients expand their reach beyond live events, the agency also recently launched FXP I cloud, a social engagement platform that allows clients to host integrated online events throughout the year. By leveraging FXP I cloud, clients gain access to a virtual solution that provides true connectivity to audiences on a more frequent basis.
“Organizations have a need to connect with audiences year round and through many different touchpoints. Our FXP I cloud offering expands the audience for an organization’s event portfolio through integrated online events that connect and amplify messages 365 days a year,” added Cavanaugh. “The reality is that, with the right strategy and content plan, online events do not cannibalize face-to-face events. We have found that by creating year-round online events that are seamlessly connected to face-to-face events, brands have a real opportunity to extend conversations and convert attendees into customers.”
