Londres y Nueva York reciben a Colombia como destino turístico a promocionar

Reactivating tourism and promoting the charm of Colombia is one of the main objectives of ProColombia, the government agency in charge of promoting exports, international tourism and foreign investment. Within this framework, it has carried out an impressive campaign in London and New York, two cities that welcome 33% of all tourists worldwide.

In collaboration with Latcom, a company specialized in outdoor advertising (OOH), the “Finding Charm” campaign was launched, whose objective is to highlight the attractions of Colombia, a country with a vast geography that offers impressive landscapes, majestic mountains, exuberant jungles, rich history, vibrant culture and a varied gastronomy.

Given the diversity of tourist options that the destination offers, a technology-based strategy was implemented and large digital panels were used in Times Square and Piccadilly to capture the attention of the target audience. The creative of the campaign included a QR code that invited to enjoy a premium series without the need for a subscription, which shows the different regions of Colombia.

This 6-episode series not only highlights the different geographies of Colombia, but also its gastronomic variety, culture, art, music, mysticism, and the warmth of its people. The strategic choice of these two places with high pedestrian and vehicular traffic made it possible to reach the target audience, achieving more than 356,000 views of the “Finding Charm” series.

Each of the 6 chapters focuses on one of the 6 regions of Colombia, a country that invites you to immerse yourself in a dance of cultures, flavors, music, and history.
