Background and Plan

  • Tourism Ireland wanted to deliver its campaign at moments that aligned with passion points for its audience i.e., history, culture, art and travel. Knowing that cinema attracts a highly engaged, content-loving and culturally curious audience it was the perfect environment to showcase the ad, with the aim of boosting key metrics including consideration and planning a holiday to Northern Ireland.
  • Running in cinema only, Tourism Ireland launched the 30” creative across ABC1 Adult AGP, titles including Avatar: The Way of Water, Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody, M3gan, Babylon, The Fabelmans & Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania.


Using cinema to reach the target ABC1 audience at time when they’re enjoying one of their cultural passions and in a high attention environment has delivered positive results across the key metrics for Tourism Ireland.
