Best of All, It’s in Hong Kong
In October 2016, we launched the new “Best of all, it’s in Hong Kong” brand campaign. It showcased many of Hong Kong’s unique characteristics in four categories – “Non-stop Intensity”, “Fascinating Contrasts”, “Compact Variety” and “Distinctly Trendy” – and promoted seven core experiences the city offers – living culture, arts and entertainment, sports and great outdoors, attractions, nightlife, dining and shopping.
With additional funding from the Government in 2016/17 in support of the new brand campaign, we produced four new promotional videos under the themes “Gourmet & Nightlife”, “Trendy Arts & Entertainment”, “Family Fun”, and “Great Outdoors & Living Culture” to highlight Hong Kong’s unique appeal.
The new brand campaign was launched in various markets, including the Mainland, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia. The promotional videos were broadcast on 70 regional channels and local TV stations, as well as major digital and social media platforms in source markets.
We also promoted Hong Kong’s diverse tourism experiences to visitors, international media and the overseas trade through digital and social media platforms, public relations and trade events to encourage visitors to explore the city’s unique and diverse tourism experiences like a local.
We set up a dedicated website in six languages for the brand campaign. In addition to introducing Hong Kong’s diverse tourism experiences and exciting events, the website provided suggested itineraries, offers by travel trade partners, and other useful information.
During the period from October 2016 to March 2017:

- Brand website page views: close to 40 million
- Increase in the number of social media fans of the HKTB: about 500,000
