The Korea Tourism Organisation is to unveil a four week digital Outdoor Advertising campaign ‘Buzz Korea’ on the world famous Piccadilly Lite digital screen. The advertising will launch on Monday 16th July ahead of the Opening Ceremony of the Games and run until the Closing Ceremony on 12th August.
“The London Olympics is a unique opportunity to raise the profile of our destination, with the ‘eyes of the world’ on London. Korea is a destination whose popularity is on the rise, not only as a travel destination, but in terms of popular culture from K-Pop to technology, film to taekwondo, cuisine to art; our creative campaign message reflects those elements. The Piccadilly Lite screen will provide an amazing platform to get people thinking about our destination and fully utilize the exposure that the Olympic party will herald.” Mr. Hongki Kim, Director - Korea Tourism Organisation.
