Multiplatform campaign enhances brand image
Brand awareness | New consumers
Brand South Africa wanted to identify and refine the key attributes of South Africa to enhance the image and reputation of the country and promote the nation to an international audience of global investors, decision makers and frequent travellers.
They wanted to achieve these ambitions with campaign bursts around the World Economic Forums in Davos and later in Africa.
CNN International developed a multiplatform campaign that ran in two parts around the World Economic Forum in Davos and then later in Africa. Leveraging access to CNN International's affluent and influential audience, the campaign included TV, digital content and an exclusive networking event in Davos.
Part two of the campaign ran to coincide with World Economic Forum Africa with a cross-platform editorial programme, Africa Looks Forward and expansion of the TV campaign to additional markets.
