Tiger Beer rolls in the Chinese New Year with web push
LONDON - Tiger Beer is honouring the start of Chinese New Year with an online guide, helping consumers understand the traditions behind the occasion.
The guide introduces 2007 as the year of the pig and provides a rundown of events being held throughout the UK. The festival kicks off Sunday February 18 with parades in London and Manchester.
Tiger Beer is owned by Asia Pacific Breweries and is brewed throughout the continent, with a large base in China. In 2006, the company introduced its largest on-pack promotion to tie in with Chinese New Year, offering consumers the chance to win a Chinese banquet.
In addition to the digital guide, the 2007 campaign also involves an online competition asking consumers to guess the number of fortune cookies in a jar. Prizes include a year's supply of Tiger Beer and Asian food hampers for runners-up.
Tiger Beer has heavily invested in marketing recently to increase brand awareness within the 18- to 34-year-old market. The company is currently running a national press and digital campaign through agency Golley Slater, offering competition winners the chance to travel in Asia for a month.
Steven Greaves, marketing manage at Tiger Beer UK, said: "We're delighted to be launching our first ever guide to Chinese New Year, helping people discover the rich history of the festival, and the superstitions and traditions that are behind this important occasion.
"With so many celebrations taking place across the UK, we'd like everyone to get involved so they can enjoy all that the festival has to offer."
