Celebrities will be donning the aqua sunglasses and explaining the importance of supporting the arts, in digital ads and videos as well as on social media.
“We are creating a new movement in promoting our arts and cultural offerings with this ad campaign,” commented Marilyn Bauer, director of marketing and government affairs at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. “Art and culture are at the heart of why people are looking to travel. Today’s travelers have shifted their spending habits from things to experiences. They want to embrace the cultural experiences that The Palm Beaches have to offer.”
The strategic campaign utilizes print, digital and social media advertising as well as virtual reality, events, newsletters and more. The campaign’s dedicated website, palmbeachculture.com/things-to-do/behind-the-sunglasses, invites users to share their story using the hashtag #ShadesOfCulture. The Council has launched palmbeachculture.com/travel, making it easy for visitors to plan culturally-focused trips to The Palm Beaches with the destination’s new Cultural Concierge.
The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County is tapping into the driving force behind why visitors are looking to travel — unique cultural experiences. The Cultural Council is charting new territory in providing cultural concierge services and promoting more than 200 arts and culture organizations that facilitate more than 42,000 cultural experiences a year.
