McCann reveals new ad for Antigua & Barbuda Tourism

Published on July 2, 2020

Our team at McCann Demand has created a TV campaign for the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority to encourage those dreaming of their next escape to consider the Caribbean country for their getaway.

The campaign, ‘Your Space in the Sun’, invites people to discover a different kind of social distancing, thanks to its 365 beaches along 95 miles of coastline.

Using stunning aerial photography to demonstrate the feeling of space, the campaign has been created to position the destination as the perfect remedy for the 2020 blues – one without the crowds found elsewhere within the Caribbean and across Europe.

Colin James, Chief Executive of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority said: “Our islands have 365 beaches, an expanse of blue sea, and panoramic sunsets every night but broadly speaking, our awareness remains relatively low.At a time when people are dreaming of being able to escape, we want to inspire people to broaden their horizons and consider Antigua & Barbuda for when they are ready to plan their next trip.

“The campaign represents our country and what we stand for beautifully – the idea of space is something we have in abundance and is undoubtedly what attracts people to visit. We’re very happy with the way this flows throughout all of the executions whilst maintaining a premium, aspirational feel.”

Hannah O’Neill from McCann said: “Antigua and Barbuda is without a doubt a luxury destination and our approach was to maintain a premium feel through contemporary and modern creative which centred on this feeling of space, all communicated through authentic imagery of what the islands have to offer.”

The TV ad is running on ITV Hub throughout July, supported by a social media campaign. The 30-second ad can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/ouXQPJ6DaWk
