This paper uses an iconic case to investigate Schultz's (2008) Push Pull Model of Marketing Communication. The Royal Queensland Agriculture Show of the Ekka, a 133 year old hallmark event, struggled to deliver its message to a more sophisticated and timepoor audience, who were watching less traditional media and had more entertainment options. An online environment, with games, itinerary planner and ticket sales, was developed to pull Ekka goers and increase event attendance. The case supported the model, but raised questions for the future research of the effect of a good online environmnet on the acceptance of traditionally pushed marketing communication messages.
