Economic woes may continue to blight the Western world, but clearly not at this weekend’s specialist Aston Martin auction where the lot sales aggregated up past the ten million mark.
Following fierce bidding by telephone and in the crowded hall, the anticipated star of the show, the 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT Jet by Bertone, made in excess of £3 million alone when adding in commission. Less desirable models smashed the maximum estimate by £100 000.
Held at Aston Martin’s renowned workshop in Newport Pagnell, the sale is getting more important with increased publicity and visitors attending from across Europe, the US and further afield.
Over the last decade in the property world, there has been a trend to bring the outside in and maximise the full annual use of a property’s total available floor area. Public buildings and home owners alike are getting in on the halfway house of the glass covered void filler, giving a sensation of the outdoors with plenty of light streaming in, while remaining sheltered from the elements of northern Europe.
Think of the newly opened Trinity Leeds shopping development and Blenheim Palace’s new gift shop pictured here alongside the British Museum’s Great Court, enclosed by Foster and Partners back in 2000.
Using sympathetic and well designed cover structures, has the added advantage for historic and listed buildings of being able to make modifications without altering the fabric of their construction. A subliminal practical update in keeping with the original style and feel of the building, whilst making the space more usable.
EFG International, the Swiss private bank, sponsored this weekend’s third Donington Historic Festival. EFG has made itself synonymous with historic motoring events and this year issued a small guide covering its involvement in this and the other historic series over the 2013 season.
There is no doubt this form of sponsorship and soft sell works, but how can anyone quantify the exact ROI (return on investment). For an organisation such as EFG, many factors need to align to snare the quarry, such as the invitee’s ability to afford their service, be in a position to change providers and come to think of it, actually have a requirement for an EFG style operation.
With any sensitive proposition and especially when aimed at HNWI (high net worth individuals) an organisation must take a softly, softly approach. There really is no other way. While time consuming, this will ensure a long lasting business relationship and further generate much positive word of mouth amongst the customer’s family, friends and contacts. In this case, sponsorship does bring an ROI, even if hard to quantify.
Associating a brand with a highly visual character is not a new phenomena. The success of the now renowned meerkat from VCCP has encouraged brands to re-visit the character creation department, in an effort to encourage an association and drive sales.
Three Barrels brandy has come up with a typical quirky British aristocratic family. The Basildons enjoy their brandy in a variety of forms. A poster advertising campaign is supported with a website, which collects visitor details, while describing the fictional Sippinghurst family.
The campaign is fun and memorable, but is the link somewhat tenuous?
To rounds of applause and media fanfare the new Trinity Leeds complex opened at the end of quarter one. Offering 1 million square feet of retail space, it is Western Europe’s largest retail launch this year. Developed and owned by Land Securities, it takes various arcades, such as the Burton, and what were previously shopping and connecting streets.
The development pulls these elements together simultaneously under the Trinity Leeds umbrella. The mishmash of angles, levels and materials works. It has an open feeling, and looks traditional with a modern twist. The terrace gardens up above and outside the covered complex add another element of natural environment and inspiration.
Trinity Leeds is a development for 2013 and it communicates its intention clearly. Unlike the previous attempts at city centre next generation retail, where soulless stuffy centres close at 6pm, Trinity Leeds does an excellent job of bringing the outside in. Mixing the old and new. Giving shelter from the elements with the sensation of an old world shopping street, while managing to incorporate the historic church seamlessly and in character, amongst the sweeping glass canopy and girder design.
The centre is an excellent creation and it works in all regards. Looking stylish and functioning as an appealing entertainment space. The development overrides the negative connotations of the 1970s and 80s shopping centre urban monstrosity. Trinity Leeds has successfully melded traditional Victorian Leeds with the 21st Century.
"Since our trade sale of E*TRADE UK I've worked with a number of companies as a non-exec or adviser and have always taken to the opportunity to introduce Xavier to each company. I know how good he can be and I know what he does best, so recommending him is second nature. If I were to pick just one of his attributes, it would be his irrepressible enthusiasm. And that translates into exhaustive attention to detail, meeting and beating deadlines and it creates a positive buzz around his clients."
Julian Costley, former CEO E*TRADE, UK
"AMC Network has been great for us: very helpful and obviously well-connected. They have put a number of media opportunities our way, giving us profile in pan-European media such as the Wall Street Journal Europe, and in the trade press such as Digit Magazine."
