- Anheuser-Busch InBev
Belgian-Brazilian-U.S. brewery giant Anheuser-Busch InBev with flagship brands as Budweiser, Stella Artois, Beck’s, Michelob, Bass, Labatt, and St. Pauli Girl, AB InBev boosted advertising spending by 20 percent in the final quarter of last year alone, and has not stopped since.
After its $52 billion purchase of Anheuser-Busch in 2008, AB InBev—known for its cost cutting—is currently giving attention to rebuilding its existing brands and aiming for a marketing-driven growth.
Following last year’s release of Bud Light Golden Wheat and Budweiser Select 55 in the U.S. market, new varieties of its Antarctica and Bohemia brands in Brazil, and a new Budweiser marketing campaign in the U.K., AB InBev recruited Madonna and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger to promote its Brazilian Brahma beer on the streets of Rio de Janeiro during last month’s carnival.
The Budweiser brand will be a major player at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where it will sponsor the man-of-the-match awards. This will be decided through online and mobile-text voting, an innovation part of a digital media push unveiled on March 26 by AB InBev.
