Our marketing and campaign activity promotes London as a tourism, business and higher education destination worldwide.
Our campaign activity aims to promote London worldwide, inspiring visitors to book a visit to London for city breaks, day trips, or holidays. We promote London both domestically and internationally, targeting consumers directly through advertising, marketing activity and promotions. We also work with the travel industry to promote London to individual leisure travellers and groups worldwide. Current and future campaigns include:
- The London Story: The 2013/14 campaign presented a valuable opportunity to build on our post-Olympic campaign, London Now See it for Yourself, by continuing to shift perceptions and encourage our international audiences to visit London, showing them why the UK capital is the world’s best visitor destination. London is a city of people and a city of stories, and this campaign showcased the most unique and passionate, inviting visitors to start their own London story. As Gordon Innes, Chief Executive of London & Partners, explains: “The London Story campaign offers a fascinating and personal insight into what the capital means to Londoners and vividly conveys to people all over the world what an amazing place it is to visit.”
