"FEEL THE LOVE"
The “Feel the Love” campaign was devised to promote the island as a year-round destination with three core drivers: the Beach and Sizzle season, the Golf & Spa season and Events.
An integrated strategy folded in several other important components to broaden the reach of the campaign, including highly selective media placement, breakthrough creative, targeted special events, and agency partnerships that insured seamless execution. An events strategy was created that re-branded the island’s signature event, the Bermuda Music Festival. Partnering with a popular radio host, ticket sales increased by more than 200% over the previous year. The strategy integrated all agency partners, including the sales and marketing departments and groups and incentive travel teams, and unified messaging across all consumer touch points including working directly with airline marketing representatives to drive down the cost of traveling to the island.
The Bermuda Department of Tourism (BDOT) reported a record breaking third quarter in receipts of about $55 million. In the first three quarters of 2006, air and cruise passengers to the island surpassed the half million mark, which had not been done since 1987.
The campaign focused internationally to travelers in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada.
