SONY Professional uses jazz trios from the Jazz Central as live décor

Client: D = 3 Exhibition Design
September 2013
10 jazz trios in 5 days

Every year, the International Broadcast Conference is held at the RAI. A huge exhibition where video professionals from all over the world come to learn about the latest in studio cameras, recording and video editing. For years, market leader SONY has had one of the largest stands that fills a complete exhibition hall.Jazz trios of the Jazz Central function in 2013 as a live setting, so that guests can try the professional (and very expensive) cameras from SONY in lifelike (concert) situations. The big advantage of live music at the SONY stand is that the atmospheric music generates extra traffic to the stand.

For five days, the Jazz Central provides two jazz trios every day, which pay off in shifts and provide guests with appealing decor.

A standing ovation of SONY's exhibition team (about 35 man) to the musicians during the closing of the fair testifies to the great success of the jazz professionals of the Jazz Centrale.


  • Full-continuous music for 5 days in a row
  • Deployment of 2 jazz trios per day
  • Take care of wing rent and all other equipment

Old Amsterdam claims the cocktail moment

45 bookings
march - June 2013

In a two-month campaign, the rebranding of Old Amsterdam cheese has to take shape. Old Amsterdam uses field marketing agency Veldmark BV to appeal to the professional and large team at the Jazz Central.
For two months, two jazz bands must be performed every Friday and Saturday, spread over two cities across the country.

A mobile jazz duo from the Jazz Central supervises the Old Amsterdam promotion team, equipped with cheese cubes, flyers and campaign material, and thus visits 10 grand cafés per evening. More than 200 cafés are visited in two months, where you can enjoy a block of cheese and fifteen minutes of genuine live jazz. Cared for by the Jazz Centrale team on site!

At the same time, another jazz duo plays elsewhere in the country in the foyer of theaters at the end of the main performance. While one enjoys the show, one gets a block of Old Amsterdam from the promotion team, and one enjoys swinging live jazz, provided by the Jazz Centrale.

At the end of the campaign, 5 likers on Facebook are treated to 5 fully catered drinks, including drinks band.

The campaign is a great success. The Jazz Centrale supplies a total of around 45 jazz bands, in various compositions and in great flexibility.


  • Deployment of two jazz bands on Friday and Saturday, during 2 months
  • Creative use of mobile Jazz Band in that has to go along with the promotion team
  • Extremely complex planning
  • Deployment of a large part of the Jazz Central team

Despite the great complexity of this assignment, the team at the Jazz Central succeeded in making a successful contribution to the rebranding campaign of Old Amsterdam.
