Real Families at the Heart of Center Parcs Campaign
Center Parcs launches a new £4m integrated marketing campaign led by a new TV commercial starring real Center Parcs guests.
The campaign will run across both offline and online channels and was launched through Center Parcs’ social media channels at midday on Friday 20th December. The 50 second TV advert, which premieres during Downton Abbey on Christmas Day, is at the forefront of a campaign designed to showcase the quality and range of experiences available on a short break at Center Parcs and within its unique forest locations. This message will be reinforced by a series of online films, depicting a ‘day in the Center Parcs life’ of each of the six families used in the advert.
Sales and Marketing Director Colin Whaley said; “With the opening of our new Village at Woburn Forest only a few months away, we are launching our biggest and most integrated campaign ever. The end line ‘Your Family, Your Time’ encapsulates the endless opportunities there are for families to spend fun time together and enjoy a short break in a way which is very personal to them”.
The six families were chosen to star in the advert after casting sessions earlier in the year and represent a cross section of ages and family groups, from grandparents to pre-school aged children.
“Center Parcs targets affluent time-pressured families and provides an oasis of calm, a place to try new experiences and enjoy being with those close to you – so important in our busy lives. It is for this reason that we have used real Center Parcs guests. To keep the campaign real, we will also be encouraging others of our guests to share their own personal Center Parcs family experiences through our social media channels, such as Facebook, Youtube and Twitter”, Whaley added.
