We’re a campaign agency with a difference. We tell stories that gather people around live, scheduled content on the web. We call these moments “happenings” online.
Our happenings help you to reach, engage and influence bigger and more relevant audiences in realtime.
Here are some of our campaigns.
HAPPENINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA
We host Facebook and Periscope live streams, tweet chats, live blogs and more on just about any social network. We grow communities, engagement and influence on social media with live content and “beforetime” marketing campaigns. We’ve even proven that a Twitter chat with Robert Schuman, the late “Father of Europe” who’s been dead for over 50 years, attracts a livelier discussion than most live chats with politicians who aren’t dead.
HAPPENINGS FOR EUROPE
We’re launching “The Europe Song”, a strange little tune that’s taken 22 years to complete (stay tuned). We hosted “Best Volunteer Ever” to bring a whole new audience to the European Voluntary Service, and we helped bring the European Job Days online. Now we’re growing communities and hosting live campaigns for projects like EPALE and the New Narrative for Europe. We’re working wonders for our European Union clients, one live happening at a time.
HAPPENINGS FOR CHANGE
Back in 2008 we created Subsidiarity Man, the unlikely superhero who convinced dozens of dictionaries to recognise the clumsiest word in the EU’s Lisbon Treaty. We organised Facebook’s first “hashmob” to animate Bosnian protesters around a hashtag. And we hosted 50 Days of Spin in the lead up to the COP21 talks in Paris, gathering stakeholders around climate action in glorious, spin-free realtime. Amazing things can happen when crowds gather online.
A DIAMOND SALE WITH A TWIST
We hosted a live sale happening for Langerman Diamonds, for the last 50 years the world’s foremost merchant of colour diamonds. Starting at US $50,000, we mischievously increased the price of the “Pink Valentine” diamond every time it was shared on Facebook. The 7-day happening pushed the price up to $129,000, generating more traffic and online buzz than any other sale in the company’s history.
Co-founded by our Chief of Happenings and Klika.ba software developers, Soonfeed is the world’s first timeline of what’s happening soon on the web, like a TV guide for the 21st century. Users discover and “Join” happenings to receive an alert as it starts. Publishers embed the (free) soonfeed widget on any website to announce and promote happenings before they go live. We also curate and market soonfeeds on any theme or event. Contact us to add real value to your website!

WHO WE ARE
Richard Medic created his first live happening back in 1987, when as a teenage intern at Melbourne radio RRR he hijacked Studio 2 to impersonate a kookaburra.
In 2012, Richard founded happeningo campaign agency and Soonfeed media as a way to gather crowds around happenings online. Now we’re a team of live content specialists based in Brussels and Mostar, working with brands, agencies and partners around Europe and the world.
This is how we look as pencil drawings.
