Ray Smith, CEO of BE-AT.TV, said: “In 2017 we partnered with Corona to assist them in maximizing the ROI on their Corona Sunsets Tulum and San Pancho, Mexico events platform through live streaming. For 6% of the cost of the events themselves, we broadcast their Sunset events to over 5.2 million viewers and developed a unique storytelling format that incorporated local personalities as hosts to help shape the brand’s message. 2018 will see us booking tent-pole and mid-tier level events for every major market around the world as we roll out a new musical ambassador programme that will signal an evolution in the ‘Sound of Sunsets’.”

The ambassador programme aims to evolve the musical offering for fans while fostering a more reciprocal relationship between the artists and Corona.
Corona Sunsets has grown to become a major branded event series. The festival celebrates the “transformational power of the sunset moment” in iconic locations with a curated music line-up.
Each event also has an environmentally-conscious ambition to become free from single-use plastic in an effort to help protect oceans and beaches, and offers bespoke stage designs, co-creative art installations and immersive experiences.
BE-AT.TV has been streaming DJs and events for almost 10 years. The company said its viewer base is growing at a rate of 750%.
