To launch Flight Centre’s second retail store in Hong Kong.
This store opened only three months after the first one. The challenge was how to interest media in Flight Centre a second time around within such a short time frame.
PLUG IN ACTION:
PLUG created a series of intimate media events with the theme “Design Your Dream Holiday”. Journalists were invited to pick their dream destination and have a Flight Centre travel consultant plan a holiday itinerary to suit their specific needs and budget.
The media event brought Flight Centre’s key USPs to life. It also provided a unique way for journalists to experience the brand’s offering resulting in in-depth media coverage. PLUG also secured guest columnist positions for Flight Centre consultants in SCMP and Sassy Online.
