To mark the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024.

Allianz, to mark the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, has launched a brand campaign developed by Howatson+Company.

Allianz has been the Worldwide Insurance Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements since 2021, and in Australia a partner of Paralympics Australia since 2011 and the Australian Olympic Committee since in 2019.

The Allianz ‘Ahhh’ is one of Australia’s most memorable brand codes and ‘Ahhh’ also happens to be the sound Austraians make when they’re excitedly cheering on their favourite athletes.

The creative will use this simple but powerful truth to create a uniting cheer, celebrating those shared moments of everyday Australians cheering on their nation, and in turn make Allianz the brand Australians remember the most during the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024.

The campaign has two key messaging phases spanning across owned, earned and paid channels. Prior to the games, which will anchor Allianz in the community by building excitement and awareness of “Go Australiaahhh”.

During the games, it will connect Allianz to the games by celebrating all the moments, big and small.

The activity kicked off with a Teaser Campaign followed by a six-week burst that capitalises on key sporting and cultural media environments through TV, outdoor and audio, and reaches into our key partner locations through outdoor and in-lift activity.

The campaign will then be brought to life through live activations, a significant earned media execution, managed by Eleven PR, as well as social led activity.

“‘Aahhh’ is the sound we made when Cathy Freeman sprinted into history, it’s the sound that we made watching the Courtney Vine score ‘that goal’, and it’s how we will celebrate every time an Aussie achieves the remarkable in Paris," Allianz chief general manager consumer Shez Ford said. 

“Sport is a huge part of Australian communities and lives. And our Olympic and Paralympic partnership provides us with the opportunity to bring to life the every day Australians we serve that will be cheering our athletes on in their living rooms, in pubs and anywhere they can find a TV or Phone.”

Howatson+Company’s group managing director Renee Hyde said this campaign captures the joy of celebrating the country’s best.

"The Olympic and Paralympic Games unite our nation – bringing communities together all over Australia."

Earlier this year Allianz announced its new ambassador, swimming star Mollie O’Callaghan. She joins Allianz Australia’s cohort of ambassadors including Cate Campbell, Madison de Rozario, Nic Beveridge, Owen Wright and the Australian Steelers.
