Samsung Partners With Robbie Williams for 'Take the Crown' Campaign

Oct 01, 2012

Samsung announced as title sponsor for upcoming UK dates

Samsung has today announced that it will be the brand partner for Robbie Williams’ forthcoming campaign, ‘Take the Crown’. This follows the huge success of Samsung’s 2011 sponsorship of Take That’s ‘Progress Live’ tour, and will give Samsung access to exclusive Robbie Williams content which will be available across its extensive range of devices, including the Galaxy Note II.

The relationship will kick off on Monday October 1st with the announcement of Robbie Williams’ eagerly awaited next live dates which will be at London’s O2 arena later this year.

As title sponsor, Samsung customers can expect access to a range of exclusive content, including messages from Robbie, behind-the-scenes footage, and key moments from the dates, all through a bespoke Robbie Williams app. It will also feature all the latest news and what Robbie is up to next. Samsung will also be entitled to brand integration into the O2 including venue branding and concert footage streaming; advertising and PR rights including the use of all tour imagery across digital and POS materials; tickets to the shows; signed merchandise and access to Robbie’s social media fanbase.

Simon Stanford, Vice President, Telecommunications and Networks, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “Samsung is thrilled to be working with Robbie Williams again. We had a great time getting to know him last year during our sponsorship of ‘Progress Live’ so to be able to build on that relationship is fantastic news, not just for us, but for our customers and partners. So many of our customers are music fans, so this is a great opportunity for us to bring what they love straight to them, through exclusive content and access to one of the UK’s most well-known and loved music artists.”
