GOVT KL flies high with Air Asia X and Tourism & Events Queensland to embrace the Gold Coast

Final 4pillars Printads final-01.jpgGOVT Kuala Lumpur has kicked off the new year with a campaign to lure and inspire young Malaysians to travel direct to the Gold Coast, Australia.

The Embrace Gold Coast campaign is the result of a strategic tie-up between Tourism & Events Queensland (TEQ) and Air Asia X (AAX) where GOVT Kuala Lumpur emerged as the choice for their conceptual thinking and campaign messaging.

"Younger Malaysian travellers are looking to embrace inspiring journeys to unexpected destinations which is why we've positioned Gold Coast as the ideal destination that welcomes them with open arms and highlighted the less-expected offerings in the films," says Didi Pirinyuang, GOVT KL's Creative Group Head. "Having the rare opportunity to change the narrative of a well-known brand and destination is what GOVT itself thrives on, and we look forward to even more creative challenges and collaborations."

The campaign is expected to run for 6 months and a local influencer-led contest in the pipeline, to give the audience even greater brand experience in rediscovering the wonders of Gold Coast and beyond.
