EXPERTISE IN MARKETING & COMMUNICATION
For SMEs and international brands, we are responsible for the entire marketing and communication measures in Switzerland. We build on close cooperation with our customers and are happy to perform our mandates as part of the team in our partners' offices.
EXPERTISE IN SPORTS MARKETING
We have more than 20 years of experience in sports management with a focus on football. We know the motivations and mechanisms of "the most beautiful sports in the world" from a sporting as well as a commercial point of view and have already realized more than 100 sponsoring partnerships.
As pioneers, we have built up beach soccer in Switzerland from 2001-2019, marketed it and made it respectable. We have played more than 500 official international matches worldwide, as well as being the delegation leader at 5 FIFA World Cups and 3 Olympic finals (EOG and WBG) and are one of the most successful nations in the history of this sport.
For the Swiss Football Association, we repositioned the entire FIRST LEAGUE division with 58 clubs in all language regions of Switzerland. The "local heroes" of Swiss football were made marketable in the form of digital content platforms, campaigns, media partnerships, video services and B2B programs. Exceptional milestones were set with various acquisitions and marketing partnerships.
EXPERTISE IN EVENTS
Since 2001 we have developed, marketed and implemented event formats and projects as in-house productions and on behalf of well-known companies. In Switzerland we have held more than 200 events in all language regions. This includes public and company events, promotions and road shows in public places, as well as in tourist regions and at trade fairs. STARC has developed numerous new event formats from scratch, such as the ZÜRICABANA Publicviewing at HB Zurich, the "Directories World of Töggeli", the Concordia Family Tour, the SBB Magic Ticket Summer Games, the Mac Donalds Beach Tour, the first TCS Camping Festival and more .
