“MadeInSuzhou: Exploring Suzhou’s Local Specialties Through Digital Experiences”

Suzhou Tourism announces the launch of its newest integrated social media campaign - "MadeInSuzhou: Exploring Suzhou’s Local Specialties Through Digital Experiences” - designed to showcase the destination’s unique experiential features and cultural offerings and engage travelers who are seeking deeper, emotional connections with locals and communities as part of their adventures. Targeted at the North American market, the program will tell the story of Suzhou through a variety of activations including social media influencer engagement, creative content development, and a series of consumer-focused online contests and offline events that will inspire and motivate travelers to visit the destination across its digital and social media platforms, specifically its website, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.

Between now and May 31, 2018, Suzhou Tourism will host quarterly social media contests across Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter centered around providing consumers with the opportunity to “master” one of the experiences that make Suzhou unique from other destinations in China. The contests are aimed to educate travelers about Suzhou’s exclusive offerings, positioning the city as an ideal destination for experiential travel seekers. Additionally, Suzhou Tourism has partnered with award-winning travel journalist and top digital media influencer Kelley Ferro, who will share her personal experiences visiting Suzhou through a “master class series” of videos and online coverage that will highlight the local experts and craftsmen of Suzhou throughout the campaign.

In conjunction with the campaign’s online initiatives, Suzhou Tourism will engage influential artist attractions, renowned cultural venues, and well-known public sites in North America to further support the new program’s theme, which will include hosting four events across top-tier key markets such as New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Each event is designed to reflect one of the destination’s local specialties, including collaborations with top international organizations and events such as the annual Emmy Awards.

Travelers can follow the campaign by visiting the website or following the destination’s official hashtags #TravelSuzhou and #MadeInSuzhou, as well as Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter channels (@VisitSuzhou).
