The International Paralympic Committee reaches 251m fans with Grabyo

IPC reached more people across social channels than for the Sochi 2014 and London 2012 combined.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) teamed up with Grabyo for the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games, reaching more people across social channels than for the Sochi 2014 and London 2012 Paralympics combined.

 

Grabyo was used by Paralympians and fans, as well as the Games’ volunteers, IPC’s digital team and sponsor agencies to bring global audiences key moments, highlights, storylines and reactions. During a 10-day period, the IPC’s digital media channels reached 251m people across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Weibo – more than Sochi 2014 (which reached 66m) and London 2012 (which reached 94m) combined. It also generated 17.4m video views – three times Sochi and London combined – and 650k engagements, up 67% on Sochi 2014. This was in addition to the Grabyo partnership with Eurosport for the Winter Olympic Games.

With Grabyo, the IPC’s team of volunteers posted real-time highlights of every race, match and ceremony on YouTube. The IPC’s digital team then used Grabyo to pick the best clips for distribution across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Weibo. The IPC also streamed the Games to audiences on Facebook and YouTube using Grabyo Producer.

Agency LiveWire Sport, working on behalf of the IPC, also used Grabyo to deliver a Twitter Amplify campaign of “Wow Moments” for Worldwide Paralympic partner Toyota. The agency clipped highlights of the action as well as other special moments, which were published with Toyota branding on Twitter with a paid-media campaign to drive distribution.
