Many visitors to Hong Kong travel on a multi-destination basis, with over 80% from long-haul markets doing so. To give travellers
more options and to add value to their travel experience, the HKTB co-operated with Macau, Mainland cities and other Asian
destinations to offer different promotions and travel deals. Following are our major co-ops in 2014/15.
With the Shenzhen Tourism Bureau (SZTB) and the Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO), we organised a joint road show
to promote the appeal of Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Macau to about 100 trade and media guests in the travel market. We also
launched online and tactical promotions with key Russian trade partners to boost package sales.
We purchased a massive “Two Wonders, One Trip” billboard ad on the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto, promoting Hong Kong
and the Chengdu panda experience, and further raised awareness of the combo itinerary through a radio campaign directing
traffic to a tour operator website selling related packages. In addition, we rolled out a Flight Centre campaign with the Tourism
Authority of Thailand. For details, please click here.
For the first time, Hong Kong partnered with Macau and the Mainland on a multi-destination promotion on TravelZoo. For details, please click here.
We joined hands with SZTB and Cathay Pacific Airways to roll out new Hong Kong-Shenzhen packages featuring special airfares,
hotel offers and attractions admission tickets. Separately, the HKTB and MGTO launched a digital promotion programme
introducing new Hong Kong-Macau travel products.
We worked with the MGTO and Indian agents to launch promotions in the Delhi National Capital Region, Pan India, Kolkata and
Mumbai, generating sales of 1,300 packages.
