Taglines: One party you don’t want to be invited to!
Storyline: You, the VR viewer, wake up in a small room sitting at a table with your arms bound. Across from you is a man named Jim who also seems to be held captive. It seems to be a kind of birthday celebration that you’ve been captured to attend hosted by for a woman named Frankie who’s drinking red wine in a starch white dress shirt and a young woman named Gail who seems misplaced. You and Jim try to urge her to help you escape when she reveals to you her actual role at this “Birthday Party“.

Objective: Create consumer excitement; promote Vancouver most luxury retailers and hospitality sector to the locals, visitors by showcasing what is available to them in the heart of Vancouver’s “Luxury Zone” – the 30+ high end retailers, restaurants and attractions on the one block area around the 1000 Block Alberni form an area that is considered the most exclusive shopping and dining area in Western Canada
Challenge: The area sometimes referred to as a “Luxury Zone” has not received the community recognition that should be warranted. Although part of the Vancouver Downtown BIA, this exclusive block is lost in such a large BIA and has been unable to develop a brand on its own.
Goal: To develop a brand for the “Luxury Zone” with digital properties and hosts a collection of exclusive events ranging from luxurious jewelry festivals, super car show to seasonal holiday spectaculars. These annual must-see events are featured only on Alberni. #OnlyonAlberni
Only On Alberni:
Whether shopping for the hottest trends, stylish classics, or designer fashions, YVR Alberni is a shopper’s paradise! We are creating a brand can be recognized as one of the top luxury shopping and fine dining destination. Parallel to other acclaimed areas such as Fifth Avenue in New York, Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, and Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. Lined with international labels such as Prada, Hermes, Versace, Tory Burch, Burberry, Strellson, Moncler, Brunello Cucinelli and Yves Saint Laurent, as well as luxury retail icons Rolex, De Beers, M0851, Jaegar-LeCoulter, Lao Feng Xiang and Tiffany & Co.
YVR Alberni will be hosting a collection of exclusive events, festivals to create an exciting shopping experience throughout the year with valet parking on the block. That is both an industry & consumer event that represents Alberni “Luxury Zone”. Events including Retailer in-stores shopping events, Father’s day Super car display on the block, Mother’s day runway fashion shows with showroom shopping, seasonal holidays events, special VIP receptions, online giveaway and sales.
Build Non-Digital Properties:
REDDOT Shopping would develop and manage both the digital properties and promotional events entirely thru funding made by advertising sales and sponsorships…thus not encumbering the local businesses with any additional costs.
Neighbourhood Networks has the experience, people and software to develop, manage and sell advertising on these digital properties for the benefit of the merchants.
Andy Chu and FMA Entertainment has the experience, people and tools to develop, manage and promote the events for the benefit of the merchants.
It’s a wrap for VAFF20, what a festival we had! Was fun to producing the 20th anniversary Vancouver Asian Film festival opening gala hosted by Natalie Langston, amazing performance by Warren Dean Flandez, Eli Bennett, Scott Verbeek and the “Solontra”. Congratulations to the Vancouver Asian Film Festival team, staffs and the supports of our sponsor partners.
Vancouver’s First Virtual Reality Film Festival
