July 31, 2008 - PRLog -- SEATTLE - In order to help roll out the 2009 issue of their popular idea book to eager followers, IKEA is taking a unique approach to the traditional delivery system: they’re getting help by using a mobile billboard and 3D showroom vehicle from GoMobile Advertising, an experiential marketing company.  The truck will travel around the greater Puget Sound area, as well as make appearances at local fairs, festivals, and parades, passing out approximately 1 million copies of the IKEA catalogs for the third straight year.

“This year, you’ll find 374 pages that provide ideas, inspiration, and solutions to everyone’s home furnishing needs. The theme for our 2009 IKEA catalog is ‘Home is the most important place in the world’. It will showcase our unique point of view – the home is made for living. You will find that we are focusing on three main areas of the home – the kitchen, the bedroom, and living room.” says IKEA Store Manager, Laurie Helm. “We’re always excited this time of year to show our customers all of our new products at our new lower prices.” The free-of-charge catalog will be released July 29th in more than 27 languages and shipped to over 35 countries around the world.

The BioDiesel-fueled truck is a signature vehicle by GoMobile Advertising, and features mobile billboards on multiple sides that display new IKEA products at their ever-affordable prices.  The crown jewel of the truck is a complete living space encapsulated in the truck’s glass sides that acts as an invitation to the IKEA store as well as inspiration to customers.  This is the seventh partnership for IKEA and GoMobile, with past campaigns including the Twice Yearly Sale and their latest, “Live Small (in a BIG way)!” which showcased living ideas for small spaces and dorm rooms.  

The campaign kicks off July 29th and ends September 1st.
