CCM 68 is not only the most exclusive program that 200x85 offers, but one of the most exclusive youth hockey programs in the world. The exclusive nature of the event always raises intrigue and it was imperative to maximize this opportunity to increase awareness on what CCM 68 is and educate the audience on how they can position themselves to attend future CCM 68 events. To achieve these goals there were several assets involved from pre-event scouting reports to post-event results.

Over the course of the event, 162 stories were shared showing the whole CCM 68 experience from opening night through game time. To emphasize the professionalism of this elite event, there was plenty of graphic design preparation to ensure a high-quality presentation in a timely manner.
Kicking off in November of 2022, content strategy was a critical element to not only driving excitement for the 2023 CCM 68, but also educating our audience on the event. As the event is only offered at one age group, it is important to grow awareness to the younger ages that can participate in the future CCM 68 events.
