London, March, 3rd March 2017— MWWPR, one of the world’s largest independent PR agencies, has been appointed by Loot Crate.
Loot Crate, named as Inc Magazine’s fastest growing private company in 2016, is a fan-commerce subscription based service which offers a unique monthly box of goods for every fandom, enthusiast group and style. ‘Loot’ ranges from gaming, collectibles, apparel, tech gadgets, art and other epic gear. The company partners with the likes of WWE and Marvel, who help develop exclusive content for Loot Crate’s consumers.
The appointment will see MWWPR lead UK consumer media relations for Loot Crate’s UK launch. The agreement comes as the brand looks to build its footprint in the UK after opening a UK office, which will act as its hub for Europe. The primary remit for MWWPR is to drive awareness of the brand and its most popular product range of core gaming and anime lines.
Ked Mather, Senior Account Director at MWWPR, said: “Loot Crate’s subscription-based model offering boxes with a unique assortment of exclusively licensed products has become popular globally, proven through the 15 million crates which Loot Crate has shipped since 2012. It is clearly a vital touchpoint for consumers to enjoy the very best in pop culture fandom – every month. We look forward to building its presence in the UK and encouraging more consumers to partake in some of the Loot Crate action!”
