Hong Kong Tourism Board & Visa roll out 'Hong Kong Summer Spectacular': Win a 5D/4N all expense paid trip to Hong Kong via the ‘Hong Kong Summer Showreel’ Contest.
To fully capture the opportunities brought by summer, a popular travel season for vacationers in the region, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) will once again launch a wave of promotions under the "Hong Kong Summer Spectacular" campaign. Themed "Hot Events - Cool Place", the campaign (from 22 June to 31 August) will bundle an extensive range of summer activities in the city with tempting offers on shopping and dining. By showcasing Hong Kong's fun and round-the-clock excitement, the HKTB aims to encourage travellers to spend their holidays in Hong Kong, and generate business opportunities for the tourism and related sectors.
According to Mr James Tien, Chairman of Hong Kong Tourism Board, "We are delighted to partner with Visa International again on the 'Hong Kong Summer Spectacular' campaign. This year, we are allocating HK$27 million for promotion in visitor source markets, targeting specifically young people and families in the Mainland and other short-haul markets. We hope this campaign will help us drive arrivals and stimulate spending during the peak travel season, while increasing Hong Kong's appeal as a summer destination."
"Visa is happy to be working hand-in-hand with the HKTB for the sixth consecutive year on its large-scale summer promotion campaign," said Mr Tom Tobin, Country Manager of Visa Hong Kong and Macau. "In 2011 alone, international visitors spent a record high of HK$21 billion on their Visa cards during their stay in Hong Kong. Through jointly staging the 'Visa go Hong Kong Super Shopper' contest with the HKTB again, we aim to provide the participants with a first-hand experience of the diversity of Hong Kong's offerings and the benefits of payment by Visa."
Under the HKTB-Visa partnership, visitors will receive numerous special offers if they use their Visa cards at designated merchant outlets in Hong Kong during the promotional period. A lucky draw for both visitors and Hong Kong residents will also be held to reward shoppers who use their Visa cards.
