ThirstSolution – experiential events supplier

4 Sep

One of iD Experiential’s biggest clients is Britvic drinks, which has meant that I’ve been working on a lot of events that involve sampling various different beverages. Have been working on jobs for Lipton Iced Tea, Mountain Dew Energy and Juicy Drench – and still have loads more coming up!

We’ve been using different event channels for trial of these drinks, but the best and one of the most effective has been sampling using jet packs. For anyone that doesn’t know what a jet pack is, it’s basically a backpack that decants drinks from a keg held in the back pack through a hose and trigger – all carried on the back of a Brand Ambassador meaning it’s mobile and very easy to use.

We’ve been using a supplier called ThirstSolution for these jet packs and they’ve been such a fantastic help with all of these campaigns.

ThirstSolution also have a great story behind them. Joseph Burke started the business when he was 24 years old after applying for a loan through the Princes Trust. Joseph had a long-term illness which meant he couldn’t work for a long period of time, so he got proactive after having an idea for the business. 6 years later ThirstSolution are thriving, not only selling jet packs but loads of other products like usherette trays, mobile trading units (his Cadburys units were all over the Olympic Park for the whole duration of the Olympics and Paralympics!) and lots more. ThirstSolution are international as well – providing heaps of products for stadiums and events all over the world!

After meeting Joseph recently, his attitude towards his business is inspiring. He’s got a great hard working ethos and has built his business to an incredible level. For such a young chap he’s got a brilliant ethic and is an asset to our work!

For anyone working in experiential looking for a mobile vending/trading/sampling solutions give ThirstSolution’s website a look or give Joseph a call! He’s a peach!
