Dr. Nattakit Tangpoonsinthana, Executive Vice President of Marketing of CPN said: "The Greatest Grand Sale is a national sales event that I hope nobody will miss. All companies under the Central Group will offer promotions and discounts of up to 80% as well as many other special privileges, especially for 'The 1 Card' holders. Our group's synergy focuses on fulfilling needs and communicating directly and rapidly to our target groups. We are applying 'Emotional Marketing' strategy to create inspiration and spur spending. We have taken note that the new generation is not keen on waiting and everything needs to be fast for them. They use technology for most things and stay connected to social media at all times, which allows them to access information quickly and in real time, in particular, on high quality products that represent the best value. When they receive privileges, or get a chance to purchase on-sale items before anyone, they are pleased with themselves and for this reason, our idea is to communicate this campaign under the theme of 'Go For It' to emphasize ourselves as a leading shopping center operator whose sale nobody can miss. In addition, we are still focused on bringing influencers to help kick off a great shopping vibe. Popular photographer Tada Varit and other celebrities such as Maria Poonlertlarp, Pom Pam Niti Chaichitatorn and others are inviting everyone to shop at CPN's shopping centers. It is expected that the campaign will help to increase customer traffic by 30% when compared to a normal period."
