Espitia Arte Experiencial, El marketing de hoy es sinónimo de experiencias de marca que conectan directamente con la emocionalidad del cliente… es ir más allá de satisfacer una necesidad.  

 

 

Espitia, Arte Experiencial es una empresa artística multidisciplinaria e innovadora dedicada a la comunicación, el diseño y la publicidad. Desarrollamos experiencias diseñadas a la medida de cada cliente a partir de estímulos sensoterapéuticos, de las artes plásticas y escénicas, de la psicología Gestalt, pero, sobre todo, de mucha creatividad.

 

Nuestras obras incitan al público a sumergirse en ellas, a abrir la imaginación para vivir una experiencia creativa y emocional, muy similar a la de un sueño consciente. Transportamos a los clientes a escenarios y contextos que los involucran en una historia y un contenido. Para nosotros, la obra no está culminada hasta no ser experimentada por su público. Como resultado, obtenemos una que, aunque masiva, se devela única y perfectamente a cada persona. Creamos experiencias que se sienten como realidad aumentada, que despiertan sensaciones y establecen profundos vínculos con quienes las viven.

 

Con esta renovación del hotel, se busca emprender y salir de la estructura turística antigua, al ofrecer un nuevo modelo de hotelería adaptado a los cambios que exige este momento histórico.  Se aumenta la visibilidad y notoriedad, se enriquece la percepción que tiene el público y, por supuesto, se amplía el segmento de mercado lo cual origina nuevas fuentes de ingreso. Se facilita también la conexión entre el público y la marca, encontrándose en canales de contacto que son acordes a la tendencia del comportamiento de las nuevas generaciones.

 

Esta propuesta de convertir el hotel en uno experiencial, comienza desde el momento de la elección del hotel, motivando al huésped y generando expectativa sobre lo que va a experimentar. De igual forma, incluye creación de contenido, arte experiencial para las habitaciones, zonas comunes, restaurantes y lobby, que serán aprobadas a partir de visualizaciones de diseño que ofrecen muchas opciones para crear entretenimiento a través del arte a conformidad del cliente. Se ofrecerá un plan de trabajo y se desarrollará en un período de 6 meses que incluye la asesoría en Marketing Experiencial a través de redes sociales.

 

“Si no eres capaz de hacer soñar a tus clientes, a tu empresa le espera un duro despertar.”

 

-Gian Luigi Buitoni, Expresidente de Ferrari Norteamérica.

Espitia Galleries

Espitia Gallery sets on a great adventure, to open new doors and to get established into the most important zone of artistic development during the last decade, devoted to contemporary art, the Wynwood Art District in Miami, only comparable to the phenomenon of Chelsea in New York.

 

Wynwood has become a world-class cultural destination that includes dozens of galleries and studios, private museums, and a collection of street murals that regularly attract thousands of art lovers each month to what is arguably the Magic City's biggest social scene.

The Wynwood Art District contains over 70 galleries, museums and art collections. The second Saturday night of every month, is "ArtWalk" in Wynwood, and the art galleries and studios open their doors to the public for viewing.

 

Miami receives nowadays the most important contemporary art fairs in the world and Wynwood Art District is the ground where the most prestigious and highest world ranking New York and European galleries have branch venues.
