Companies belonging to Conotoxia Holding reached a growing speed unattainable for many competitors. Read a summary of 2019, a year full of significant achievements, challenges, and spectacular marketing projects.
America, here we come
Conotoxia's key highlight of 2019 was entering the world's largest market, the U.S. The new money transfer service was rolled out in Illinois. Americans can now send funds in the US dollars that can be delivered in any of the 27 currencies to a recipient's bank account. Soon, the service provided by Conotoxia, Inc., and a dedicated mobile app will be available to residents of other states.
Thanks a million!
That was a year full of records. Android users downloaded the Currency Exchange app more than a million times. In November, we reached a milestone of 800,000 reviews at Opineo.pl, a popular rating portal, and over 99% of them were positive. Both in terms of the number of app downloads and clients comments, the competition was far behind. All thanks to you!
We did not miss out on key sports event of the year. Conotoxia was the Official National Supporter for FIFA U-20 World Cup 2019, played in Poland. The brand gained broad exposure at all six stadiums as well as in TV broadcasts. Moreover, Conotoxia continues to sponsor national football teams of Wales and the Czech Republic.
Teaming up with Spiderman and Terminator
If you are a cinema-goer, you could easily spot the Conotoxia logo in Hollywood super hits of 2019, John Wick 3 and Ad Astra. We also partnered up with Sony Pictures Entertainment, a producer of Spider-Man: Far From Home, creating a joint promotional campaign. Last but not least, Conotoxia became an Official Partner of Terminator: Dark Fate. As stated in the official press release, fintech and movie's main character have a lot of things in common: leading-edge technology, absolute focus on purpose, and relentless determination in removing obstacles. A dedicated video spot https://youtu.be/_GJAINmGrvw was displayed in cinemas as a part of a pre-launch campaign.
