The “Create Your Own Travel” Experience
As the in-market representative for Capital Region USA (CRUSA), our task was to spark desire for travel.
In doing so, we collaborated with National Geographic Traveler (NGT) and uploaded scenic photos with explanations, to illustrate the uniqueness of the respective cities on NGT’s WeChat page.
We provided potential tourists with the opportunity to get to know CRUSA’s diverse tourism offerings by getting users to share their itineraries for a 6-day Fully Independent Traveler (FIT) plan on Weibo.
Massive Online Participation
Through social media platforms such as Weibo, we wanted to raise awareness of the region and encourage more travelers to explore CRUSA’s culture and history.
Based on all the individual itinerary submissions, two winners were chosen to experience what they listed exactly in their itineraries!
