Huge Grand Opening At Lux Apartment Community
2/7/2013 at 3:57 PM ET
I am working to create an amazing grand opening event at a luxury apartment community. Need suggestions for drawing the right clientele, how to entice them, what the best "attractions" to have would be. Money is not an object. Thanks for your help!

It would help us to help you if you told us who you consider "the right clientele" - singles, families, age range, income levels. It would also help if we knew more about what makes your apartments "luxury units" - square footage, amenities, design, view, location?. Give us something to work with, please.

You entice people by providing a great value for their time. What's in it for them to attend? Why would attending your event LIVE be worth their time? What's your goal for the show - to sell apartments, build name recognition, or get some positive PR?

The target customer we want is young professionals, 22-45, income over $40K. Amenities will include infinity pool, bowling alley, fitness centers, Starbucks coffee machines, business centers, and movie theater. Thanks for the help!

Also the goal is to get people to come to our event, bring friends, and hopefully strong word of mouth will result. Although always the ultimate goal is to sell apartments.

A single event won't create word-of-mouth. Given your target audience, why not offer the use of your public space to a club that these people are likely members of, so they get used to visiting your grounds, seeing your amenities, and liking the feeling over time. That's the best commercial for your apartment.

This is a very specific client. I used to market luxury homes for a builder in New Jersey, targeting Wall Street execs that loved to "get away" after a stressful week.
I would find out what makes these people "tick" and demonstrate how your apartment compkex will sole their "problem."
Jay had a great suggestion regarding the use of the facility. I would couple that with one or more events that will resonate with your target audience (anything from cocktail hours to playdates for families with young children, to a yoga or Pilates class for the fitness enthusiasts).

I am closing this question since there hasn't been any activity in 10 days.
Thanks for participating!
