Penfolds Venture Beyond 2023 Heinemann Australia Sydney Airport

The aquatic activation will run at Sydney Airport from October to December.

Penfolds has partnered with Heinemann Australia to create an underwater-themed activation, ‘Venture Beyond 2023’ at Sydney Airport T1 Departures.

The event is running from October to December at the location, ahead of a global roll-out. The installation is the second in Penfold’s ‘Venture Beyond’ series.

The distinctive pop-up was inspired by the limited-edition blue colourway of the Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz Exclusive Travel Gift Pack.

Drawing on themes of oceanic discovery, the activation invites passengers to voyage into the depths of the sea, harnessing visuals of scuba divers and coral-like display shelves.

Penfolds targets gifting purchases

The immersive, online-to-offline experience incorporates a digital personalisation gifting programme, designed to bolster the brand’s ambition to establish itself as the go-to choice for wine enthusiasts during the holiday period.

After purchasing the Penfolds thematic gift pack, shoppers are invited to scan a QR code to create a digital greeting card, which can be personalised with a written or video message. The greeting cards also incorporate key wine information, and an option to sign up to Penfolds’ CRM system.

Following the launch in Sydney, ‘Venture Beyond 2023’ will be rolled out to other travel retail locations, including Melbourne, Singapore, Vietnam, Dubai, and Hong Kong.
