As part of Good Food Month, the Night Noodle Markets has been a successful institution in Sydney for the past 16 years and for the first time in Melbourne last year. KDPR was retained to generate hype and publicity around the inaugural event including the launch, and meet the target of 5,000 attendees per night across the 11 nights.

KDPR developed a strategy to generate buzz ahead of the launch by engaging key local media and food bloggers. KDPR designed unique Asian-inspired food media drops, and conceptualised and delivered stunt activations including distributing specially branded fortune cookies and lion dance performances across key city locations.
