Commenting on the pre-buzz activities of Sephora’s Bengaluru launch, Pummi Khanchandani, Lead Client Servicing, Toast Events said, ‘This was our second back-to-back store launch for Sephora. The Mumbai launch was a great success with long queues and excited customers! The challenge was to recreate that excitement in Bangalore. What worked extremely well in Mumbai was the flash mob dance we did across the city. We carried that forward in Bangalore visiting several key touchpoints like bars, malls and open spaces. "
