Strategische lijn

Deze case past binnen onze strategische lijn: “Verduurzaming van toerisme”.

Bekijk strategie

Before covid-19, we realized several years of campaigns under the name Another City Trip. Another City Trip is a campaign by Eindhoven365 to put the city on the map as a tourist destination. After four editions and current events, we wanted to develop a new concept to shine some more light on Eindhoven nationally and internationally. We commissioned the creative agency Megawatt to establish an international activation campaign to further boost the influx of tourism and attract 'city explorers' to Eindhoven.

Eindhoven Souvenir

Delft blue clogs, kitschy lighters, and 'I love ...' T-shirts. Who doesn't know them? That's not how we do things in Eindhoven. You don't visit Eindhoven for the ‘what’ but for the ‘why’. In other words: in Eindhoven, you don't have tourist obligations; you visit to experience the mentality. It is precisely this mentality that we share with the campaign Eindhoven Souvenir.

The Eindhoven mentality is central to the Megawatt agency's latest city explorer campaign concept. They managed to capture that energy in a manifesto, which is central to the campaign.

Manifest

The meaning of a souvenir is a remembrance or memory. Put that fridge magnet out of your head; Eindhoven is not the city of your average souvenir. We don't like souvenirs at all. It's the people of Eindhoven themselves who provide unforgettable memories. For this campaign, we are working with four Eindhoven residents who represent the manifesto: Yetunde, Jasper, Min Young, and Roy, the "souvenirs" of Eindhoven. On the campaign website, they will tell you everything about their city: the love, energy, and favorite spots, so you know exactly where to go and what to expect.

Reach

The campaign aims to entice as many city explorers as possible to visit Eindhoven, with the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany as focus areas. 'With the help of cool videos online, shared on in-house channels like thisiseindhoven.com and @eindhovencity, and the channels of publishers in all three countries. Since this summer, thisiseindhoven.com has been available in German, Dutch, and English. Since this launch, this is the first active campaign to reach German city explorers better.
