Case Study


Elevating an organization through full-service event marketing.


ADL (Anti-Defamation League) hosted a suite of signature events in the fall of 2021, including Never Is Now, The Summit on Antisemitism and Hate, and ADL In Concert Against Hate. Town Hall was engaged as a marketing partner for these tentpole events and tasked with:

  • Elevating the event brands through both visual design and attendee engagement strategy 
  • Executing paid media campaigns to target and grow strategic audiences worldwide
  • Creating conversion-friendly event landing pages 
  • Producing key virtual components of ADL In Concert Against Hate


Media Approach: We focused on the unique target audiences and creative direction for each event, while leveraging the virtual format and incredible talent line-up to expand our reach beyond ADL’s built-in base of supporters. We developed marketing plans that incorporated programmatic video, paid social, and niche direct media buys to ensure success with both high-level awareness and lower funnel conversion. 

Creative Approach: To support our paid campaigns, we created event collateral and marketing assets, including: 

A timely promotional video for Never Is Now—reinforcing the urgency and importance of the Summit.

Promotional Concert videos, including a sizzle video, a general promo video, and an urgency promo video that highlighted talent participating in 2021.

Conversion-friendly websites (Never Is Now & ADL In Concert Against Hate) that seamlessly transitioned to a streaming destination for the events themselves.

Virtual event production elements for ADL In Concert Against Hate, including a full GFX package, opening segment production, program captions, night-of concert streaming and a post-concert highlight reel.
