I. HOT WHEELS LEGENDS TOUR: EXTENDING THE SUCCESS OF AN EXPERIENTIAL PROGRAM WITH DIGITAL CONTENT IN THE AGE OF COVID-19 (11:20AM-11:55AM ET)
Launched in 1968, Hot Wheels has become a massive global powerhouse franchise with appeal across multiple generations. The brand has been a reflection of pop culture and car culture, and has influenced and continues to influence generations of car designers and automotive enthusiasts around the world. The Hot Wheels Legends tour was launched in 2018 as a nationwide search for a life-size custom car that would be turned into one of the next Hot Wheels 1:64 scale die-cast car. The program was a immediate success and expanded worldwide very quickly. The global pandemic disrupted massively many types of experiential activations but Hot Wheels saw the opportunity to pivot and turn the program into an engaging digital experience leveraging digital content which lead to even faster expansion and more fan participation.

III. CREATING THE SPECIAL COVID-19 INTERACTIVE EDITION OF MOUNT SINAI SCIENCE & MEDICINE MAGAZINE (12:25PM-1:00PM ET)
In March 2020, New York City became the epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis. During that time, the Mount Sinai Health System showcased incredible strength and resilience treating the high volume of patients across its 8 system hospitals. At the same time, Mount Sinai also delivered life-saving treatments for patients (and staff) affected by this disease.

In an effort to capture all the work that happened during that unprecedented time, the magazine was created as a testament to the tremendous work of the nurses, physicians, researchers and health care staff during the height of the COVID-19 crisis. As many of us are working virtually, Mount Sinai needed to ensure they created an interactive digital version that could be shared across digital and social channels.

Elaine Lawson, Senior Director for Development Communications, Office of Development - Mount Sinai Health System
