To target elusive U.S. Fortune 500 CEOs, the Singapore Economic Development Board turned to The Secret Little Agency, which came up with an innovative idea: Use a coffee machine as a lead generator.

"Even powerful CEOs need a cup of coffee in the morning," said Nicholas Ye, CEO of The Secret Little Agency.

The agency partnered with Tellart to create a high-tech coffee machine for high-level business conferences that would dispense coffee only when two people stood in front of it.

The campaign resulted in more than 1,300 leads, with a total investment potential of nearly $5.8 billion for Singapore's economy.
