Impact Kona



What is Impact

Impact is a series of events providing the opportunity to interact one-on-one with key media, influencers and targeted audiences. Impact is the gateway to forming authentic relationships by providing those crucial touchpoints.

Why Impact Kona

Kona is where the triathlon world congregates and is the most iconic destination in the sport. It represents the pinnacle of achievement for all the competitors and provides the ideal setting for brands to get in front of media, influencers and consumers alike to highlight their latest innovations.

CrankTank curates both display touchpoints and lines up opportunities to tell brand stories to select international triathlon media.

Impact Kona is centered at the heart of the triathlon universe right on Ali’i Drive in Kailua. CrankTank does a takeover of the iconic Island Lava Java cafe, providing custom curated displays to connect with attending media and consumers.
