“Once in a life” Consumer Activation

To drive tourist visits from China to Israel, the Israel Government Tourism Office (IGTO) organised a two-day consumer activation event.

In addition to closing the gap between perception and reality when it comes to travelling to Israel, IGTO was also keen to elevate its presence on digital platforms through the sharing of experiences and brand advocacy.

The goal was to reposition Israel as a destination of choice for Chinese tourists particularly with affluent ones from China’s first- and second-tier cities. To do this, LEWIS wanted to guide consumers and media to have a better understanding of Israel as the travel destination and highlight its beauty.

Planning & Execution

The “Once in a Life” road show was promoted comprehensively through online and offline channels. LEWIS also forged a collaboration with National Geographic Traveler (NGT) and leveraged all of its owned media channels for maximum online and offline mileage.

We also considered Israel’s character as a destination and opted for a venue - Global Harbour, a lifestyle shopping center with massive passenger traffic near the Pudong District Shanghai – that could house reproductions of key tourist landmarks combined with interactive elements that show of the iconic and scenic views of Israel.
