Why would our event work?
How will this influence on the company's 60th anniversary?
Would this increase it popularity in Ireland?
We are bringing the event to its target market and not people to the event, this always result in a higher amount of attendees.
New styles of clothes are invented every season.. If this is successful, it can be a new era for the sealed air corporation. This could double their sales and increase their production massively. For this reason it would be the main reason to be remembered due to it great success.
Yes I believe that with this idea, whether it is successful or not it can have a great positive impact on the population. It would make the population aware of the different functions of bubble wrap, possibly increasing its sales in Ireland.11
