TAT planning A-to-Z tourism campaign with social influencers

No problem : From A-to-Z Thailand has it all” is the brand new brainchild from the Tourism Authority of Thailand that aims to use influencers to draw people to Thailand. Like the 26 letters of the alphabet, the TAT hopes to enroll 26 influencers, each regional and international, in an attempt to reach 26 million travellers around the world. The marketing campaign is scheduled to launch formally at the on-line worldwide travel commerce present ITB Berlin in March of subsequent 12 months.
As is customary within the Thai authorities, the plan has been announced before they have signed on any influencers to participate in the tourism campaign. (See: Lalisa’s New Year’s Eve Concert.) But they’ve set their sights on Formula One driver Alex Albon as he’s Thai and British.
The tourism campaign will aim to seek out and sign on influencers from completely different areas, categories, and markets, to represent all the different tourism styles and merchandise that Thailand has to offer, one for each letter of the alphabet. To qualify as an influencer tourism ambassador for Thailand, an influencer will have to have no much less than 1 million followers on their social networks.
The TAT has called on their offices around the globe to seek out and recruit potential candidates for the deliberate promotion which is part of the TAT’s planned drives to show the world that Thailand is again as a tourist vacation spot. The focus will shift from attracting huge numbers of tourists like earlier than Covid-19 – forty million in 2019 – to attracting high-quality bigger-spending vacationers by offering a better vacationer experience.
three performance metrics shall be closely watched for subsequent year’s tourism. First, the TAT has set a aim of getting every flight filled with 70% seat occupancy on average. Second, hotel bookings which have hovered round 25-30% this year (though that quantity probably doesn’t factor in a major variety of hotels which have closed completely) may have the goal of filling to 50% occupancy. Finally, the TAT is targeted on getting per passenger spending up, with a target of four,one hundred baht per particular person for home travellers and 62,580 baht per international traveller.
Doing the mathematics, that oddly particular number would possibly hint that the TAT has set an unstated goal of 8 million or 16 million guests for 2022, as that unrounded quantity would complete 500 billion baht or 1 trillion baht respectively.
The A-to-Z marketing campaign goals to grow tourism with the assistance of 26 influencers, beginning with F1 racer Albon, who the TAT says has expressed interest and would promote racing which is already popular in places like Buri Ram. Albon raced for Red Bull Racing this yr but will be part of the British group Williams subsequent 12 months and has 1.3 million Instagram followers in addition to a significant quantity on Twitter and Facebook..
