Branding Destinations

Published May 24th, 2007 with no responses.


It’s no secret to anyone who knows our work that we spend a lot of our time branding destinations. To date we’ve worked for El Salvador, The Alabama Gulf Coast, The Mississippi Gulfcoast, and more famously Kissimmee and Miami.

A few weeks ago I wrote about Australia’s great new program, “So Where The Bloody Hell Are You.”

Now I just found a fascinating Newsweek article on country branding titled Visitors Wanted.
Branding a country for tourists requires vision, honesty and citizens who love themselves” that’s worth a read.

Since I’ve posted the stories about Costa Cruise Lines introducing their latest ship online, so many people have asked me about Second Life that I thought an explanation was in order. My brother Doug turned me on to a great intro article Entrepreneur.com just published.

More on Costa Cruise Lines’ Second Life Debut

Published May 23rd, 2007 with no responses.



Yesterday I wrote about Costa Cruise Line simultaneously introducing their new ship, The Serena, in the real world and in the virtual world (See post VIA Turkel Talks).

Building brand value with their Second Life introduction, Costa worked together with their Italian ad agency and a company called Virtual Italian Parks. Virtual Italian Parks also created a land inside Second Life called “Parioli” which is a reproduction of an area in Rome.

What’s so interesting is how the guys from Virtual Italian Parks list their Second Life Avatar name in their contact info:

CEO – Amministratore Unico
Ing. Bruno Cerboni
email: bruno.cerboni@virtualitalianparks.com
Second Life: Bruno Echegaray

Relazioni Esterne
Giuseppina Scardino
