Tourism New Zealand launches Innovative Marketing Campaign

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 12 December 2008

Tourism New Zealand has launched a new advertising / marketing campaign which uses a mobile recording studio to capture visitors’ stories about their time in New Zealand.

International tourists will be invited to record their own short video diary which Tourism New Zealand will then edit and post on social networking sites, all within minutes.

Launching the new mobile studio in Auckland today, the Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, John Key, said the concept was thought to be a world first for a national tourism organisation.

"This initiative is harnessing new technology, and marketing through social networking in a way which will allow people to talk directly and immediately to those at home about their time in New Zealand," Mr Key said.

"This kind of fresh approach needed in the tourism industry to keep it among our highest foreign exchange earners during this difficult economic period worldwide," he added.

The 100% Pure New Zealand ‘Have Your Say’ studio will visit 40 major tourist sites and towns on its tour over summer, starting in Auckland but touring as far north as Cape Reinga and south to The Catlins.

Tourism New Zealand chief executive George Hickton said the organisation was always looking for new ways to reach potential travellers to talk about New Zealand.

"A few years ago, things like YouTube and Facebook were new and probably used mostly by younger travellers. These days, people of all ages are using these networks to communicate and we want to be part of their holiday story," he said.

It is anticipated that around 3,000 video diary clips will be captured during the 19 weeks on the road.

The 100% Pure New Zealand 'Have your Say' studio is the second phase of the ‘What Do You Say UK?' campaign which was launched in London in September. The campaign uses comments from British tourists in New Zealand as the basis for its television commercial.
