From the Golden Triangle to downtown on the Bay, our experiential marketing campaigns smash the competition

In order to be great, an experiential marketing campaign must accomplish three things: it has to be relevant for the target audience, unique to the individual, and compelling enough to connect to their emotions. Regardless of how creative or thought-provoking an experience, if it doesn’t reach the right people it will fail, and the “same old” experiences are just that: old. Finally, emotional engagement is critical to a memorable experience, and your audience must experience your event, campaign, or sample set on a level that goes beyond mere novelty.

At TOP, we are experts in all three branches of successful experiential advertising — relevance, uniqueness, and empathy. Our shorthand for it is, “simple, surprising, and significant.” This mantra is woven through everything we do for our San Diego clients, whether they be scrappy startups in the arts neighborhoods or major multinationals. Our ace team has the background and expertise to meet all three goals. And we do it right here in “America’s Finest City”

Anyone would agree that standing out in our town’s complex and dynamic business scene requires serious innovation. TOP Agency has a wealth of experience in building forward-thinking and revolutionary experiential marketing campaigns, around the globe and around the corner from your local business. We optimize all aspects of your San Diego experiential campaign, from concepting and planning to execution and post-event follow-up.

We are resourceful

Budgets are undeniably critical in business, and even more so to up-and-coming startups in San Diego. But concepts are crucial too. We find ways to do more with less, without compromising creativity.

We make sensory, immersive points of engagement

Unlike traditional advertising that only informs the audience about a given product or service, experiential marketing must engage as many of the five senses as possible, evoking an emotional response in the consumer. It’s this interior feeling that marks an experience indelibly in the psyche. At TOP, we’re experts at triggering sentiment using a broad palette of techniques.

We capture content

San Diego knows a thing or two about being creative. At TOP, we believe that great experiences should be creatively built to reach the right people. So we work in mass media, social media, grassroots messaging, and other means of communication to ensure that you reach the hearts of your audience.

We are creatives

Dreaming up an out-of-the-box concept is doable, but not everyone can create ones that perfectly ladder to your brand’s values and audience, all with finesse and under budget. That takes a team of true creatives. At TOP we're deep thinkers, writers, designers, developers, and concepters with our heads in the clouds but with our feet firmly on the ground.

Local experiences for San Diego companies

Partnering with TOP is like having an in-house creative engine that generates one-of-a-kind, relevant, and empathetic experiences. Simple, surprising, and significant. But it doesn’t end there.
