Marketing Strategy for Shandong tourism master plan China

The marketing strategy proposed a dual positioning of Shandong being both the heartland of Chinese wisdom (Confucius, Sin Zhu, sacred Mt Tai and others) and an area of much enjoyment (Tsingtao beer, 40% of China's wine production, a long and varied coastline, great food, etc.)  We proposed 2 campaigns: one aimed at the domestic market during the winter and shoulder seasons when they need more tourism traction and an international campaign to promote the learnings and wisdoms of Shandong.  Online marketing was proposed as a key focus of market awareness and conversion and there is a big opportunity for MICE development and promotion
