Concept/Cultural Reference:
For over 20 years, IBM has provided the technology behind the US Open Tennis Tournament. We wanted to give this sponsorship social currency by using IBM’s own technical capabilities to create content that tennis fans (our core B2B audience amongst them) could share. Research told us fans can feel overwhelmed by all the tennis statistics they’re bombarded with: what they want are bite-sized stats.
