An advertiser had purchased a door hanger, which was three-dimensional and held three PIs (medical prescribing information). Their printer didn’t seal the pockets on the door hangers, and all the PIs fell out in transit. All three PIs looked alike, so we couldn’t ask the hotel bellman to try and figure them out upon delivery. The Project Director and I had spent hours re-stuffing thousands of door hangers at 16 individual hotels. Sometimes that’s what it takes to ensure advertisers and clients have a great event.
