Showcasing the best of the St Kitts and Nevis holiday experience in branded London taxis
The tourism authority of St Kitts and Nevis have recently launched a "mobile" promotional campaign by dressing up a London Taxi with images of the twin-island nation evoking the perfect holiday experience in St Kitts and Nevis. The new move will see the branded London cab circulate London streets for the next 12 months and promoting holidays in St Kitts and Nevis to all on-lookers and cab riders.
In order to entice more British travellers (particularly from London) to go on holidays to St Kitts and Nevis, the Caribbean nation’s tourism authority has recently launched a new promotion campaign by dressing London cabs with idyllic images of the islands, evoking the true St Kitts and Nevis holiday experience.
The new marketing campaign will make the Caribbean twin island nation of St Kitts more visible to Londoners and tourists touring the capital city in a time when London is at its busiest with hordes of visitors coming to participate in the London Olympics 2012.
The new branded cabs will portray the best St Kitts and Nevis has to offer to holidaymakers with panoramic shots of the islands and its beaches, portraying the island’s beauty in a unique and “mobile” fashion. Thanks to this latest move, millions of London residents and foreign visitors will not only get to see the St Kitts and Nevis London cab but they will also get to ride in it and learn more about the islands thanks to the help of the knowledgeable driver, who has been employed for the important role of helping promote tourism to the islands.
To ensure a well-rounded promotional campaign and further tempt cab riders with St Kitts and Nevis holidays, the driver of the St Kitts-Nevis Taxi will play a key role as an ambassador for the destination, highlighting both islands’ attractions to his passengers as they travel around London. Tip-up seats inside the taxi cab will also showcase St. Kitts tourism partners, while the outside of the cab displays the website addresses of both islands
The campaign is the result of a joint effort between the St. Kitts Tourism Authority and the Nevis Tourism Authority which have both jointly launched the campaign and unveiled the fully branded London Taxi, featuring the twin island nation’s warm and vibran colours. The branding on the London cab will last for a period of twelve months as agreed with the London Taxi Advertising company.

Displaying the eye-catching imagery featured in the recent brand refurbishment of St. Kitts and Nevis, the liveried Taxi has now officially taken to the streets of London, to promote and raise awareness of the destination during the all-important London Olympics year and through to 2013.
CEO of the St Kitts Tourism Authority, Rosecita Jeffers added: “This is an exciting promotion for St. Kitts and Nevis, particularly when all eyes will be on London and the Olympics in the coming weeks. The iconic status enjoyed by the London black cab makes it an ideal platform to promote and raise the profile of the destination and we are looking forward to noting the reactions of Londoners as well as the thousands of visitors due in the next few weeks.”
“London Taxi Advertising is proud to launch a twelve month taxi advertising campaign for St. Kitts and Nevis, one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. The campaign launch is timely with the influx of visitors expected in London for the 2012 Summer Olympics and will raise awareness of the destination with the largest ever outdoor audience in London.”, added Paul Tremarco, sales director at London Taxi Advertising.
“We champion travel and tourism clients using taxi advertising, the unusual advertising space showcases St. Kitts and Nevis’ beauty, igniting the public’s interest in the destination. The vibrant taxis are sure to tempt Londoners away from the rainy July weather!”
With the hope that more Londoners will be seduced by the prospect of spending relaxing holidays in St Kitts and Nevis the taxi campaign will be supported by a number of other marketing initiatives during the course of the year, including Caribbean Month in September, St. Kitts Tourism Week in October and during the lead up to World Travel Market. It will also be incorporated within travel agent incentives in 2012 and 2013.
