Odisha Tourism promotes Hockey World Cup at Kolkata airport

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Tourism promoted its exclusive campaign ‘Odisha by Morning, Hockey by Evening’ for the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018 with OOH at the Kolkata airport.

The campaign hoardings are placed at Lightbox at the Arrival Aerobridge, Lower Arrival Lightbox, Gantry Outside Airport, Digital Screen at Conveyor Belt, Digital POD Across Airport and SHA Digital Wall at the Kolkata Airport to invite everyone.

‘Odisha by Morning, Hockey by Evening’ had received an overwhelming response in London where the campaign was placed on the iconic London buses and was also appreciated at various tourism events and roadshows in India and in Kuala Lumpur.

Sports and Tourism secretary Vishal Dev said, “We are perhaps the only state to push the agenda of sports tourism in its true essence. With less than 55 days to go for Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup Bhubaneswar 2018, we want to make sure we push the campaign at every location. We receive a lot of inflow of tourists from Kolkata and therefore, we decided to implement the OOH campaign there.”

The campaign is conceptualised by Goddess Advertising.

Sachin Das Burma, Director, Goddess Advertising said, “The Odisha Men’s Hockey World Cup 2018 is an exciting marketing opportunity for the state of Odisha. With thousands of fans from across the globe and across our country expected to come in for this event, this is a wonderful platform to showcase Odisha not just as a sporting hub, but also an amazing tourism destination.”

“The hockey fans are anyways going to come, but if we can excite their friends and family we would have done a good job. So, before the fans book their tickets, we have designed a campaign that showcases Odisha as a fantastic tourist destination, encouraging them to come in huge numbers. Odisha has the wares, it’s just a matter of showing them to the world,” he added.
