#SOmething Special About Southampton
Visitors and locals alike are being encouraged to share their #SOmething Special about Southampton as part of a major new destination marketing campaign launched by The Marketing Collective during English Tourism Week (March 14 – 22).
Whether it’s the best place to stop for a cuppa and a cake, the most romantic spot in the city or the coolest vantage point to see the cruise ships come sailing by – The Marketing Collective want to hear from you.
“We want to hear from locals and visitors about their recommendations for the city – the #SOmething they love about Southampton.
“ The idea for #SOmething draws on the SO postcode and we want to find out where people go for a lovely walk – which cafes serve the best coffee ... and who sells the tastiest cakes?” explained Jo Andrews, Managing Director of The Marketing Collective.
“Let us know your favourite places by sharing your photos and likes about Southampton using the #SOmething15 hashtag
“ We will be collecting #SOmethings throughout 2015 and sharing the recommendations during the year as part of our campaign.”
The Marketing Collective has over 12 years marketing and management experience specialising in visitor destinations, arts and entertainment industries, working in both the public and private sector.
Already well known for producing the city’s official Pocket Guide, the #SOmething campaign is just another innovative example of how The Marketing Collective is putting Southampton on the visitor map.
“There’s no better way to get under the skin of a city than to ask the people who live there for their recommendations – and also find out from visitors too.
“The city has a nationally acclaimed art gallery, great museums and an old town with fascinating medieval walls.
“There’s already a great deal to shout about – and with the new Cultural Quarter taking shape along with Ocean Village and Watermark WestQuay, we believe even more people will be choosing to spend time in Southampton,” said Jo.
