KIA Austria and Dominic Thiem

Live Coverage of Dominic Thiem in St Petersburg


The Brief

As one of the fastest growing automotive brands in the Austrian social media landscape, Kia has partnerd with Digitalwerk since 2011. We run fully integrated strategies across Facebook, Instagram, email as well as WhatsApp. When Kia approached us with an Austrian first to stream a Dominic team tennis tournament for the Austria market we pulled together an integrated plan to engage a highly relevant audience for the brand.


While Dominic Thiem smashed the St Petersburg Open tournament, Kia secured an Austria first to stream a live event as part of their brand partnership with the tennis star. Due to his strong international standing and fan base, Kia received fantastic exposure among tennis enthusiasts in Austria and we drove engagement to new highs.

“By streaming the matches from Petersburg, we found the perfect activation of our partnership with Dominic Thiem. We were chuffed with the amazing feedback from our fans. Digitalwerk was really responsive and was available 24/7 during the tournament to make this happen!”
