Sri Lanka rebrands its tourism promotion for optimum results

Published on : Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau (SLTPB) announced a new brand identity, under the creative platform “So Sri Lanka” at the World Travel Market trade show in London. The new brand platform “So Sri Lanka”, created by advertising agency JWT Sri Lanka and Landor Singapore, is based on the narrative that Sri Lanka is more than just a destination, it’s a feeling. Sri Lanka is the essence of a people renowned for their hospitality; a stunning landscape, rich biodiversity and a wealth of incredible, immersive experiences on offer for travellers.

 

The rebranding marks the beginning of Sri Lanka’s fresh approach to destination marketing. Madubhani Perera, Director Marketing, SLTPB said, “There has never been a better time for a rebrand. Sri Lanka has just been named The Lonely Planet’s Number One Destination for 2019. For us “So Sri Lanka” symbolises our evolution with the digital revolution. “So Sri Lanka” helps us evoke the inimitable feeling of our beautiful, vibrant, authentic and generous country through the smart phones of potential travellers.”

 

The campaign will target millennial travellers who select holiday destinations based on what they can hope to experience there. The “So Sri Lanka” brand platform has a contemporary, social and engaging design to reflect the heart and individuality of the country. It will roll out across all tourism promotion materials in a multi-channel, international campaign starting early next year – this will be a significant global campaign that will be amplified across all relevant digital platforms, targeting tourists from key source markets in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

 

To encourage travellers to choose Sri Lanka for an experience like no other, the film will showcase the country’s unique landmarks, vibrant cities and breath-taking landscapes including Sigiriya, Dambulla, Kandy and Ella through the eyes of the island’s inhabitants who know it best. The film will be distributed across digital and owned social channels, as well as being the focus for an earned media PR campaign across key markets – India, China and the UK. A sneak peek of the film is released today with the full-length film being released in early 2019.

 

To drive mass awareness of the new brand platform, the SLTPB is partnering with award winning* wildlife producer, Nicola Brown, whose previous accolades include David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II, to create the first-of-its-kind film shot from the viewpoint of Sri Lanka’s rich and diverse wildlife.
