How Jagermeister found their flow to throw immersive house parties for students

The rewards of running immersive events – those that are highly conceptual and bring the attendee behind the curtain – can be exciting. Attendees want to be a part of them, journalists want to write about them, and events teams can’t wait to get creative. But immersive events need to deliver an experience!

One misstep – a rogue SMS or confusing customer journey – and the whole thing falls down. One organiser that has successfully run the high-wire of immersive events is Raptor, a marketing agency who were tasked by Jagermeister to put on a series of multi-city parties for students.
