Explore the intricate wonders of NSW and feel new
Feel New, a government supported campaign, is launching a series of emotionally charged films exploring individual feelings experienced by travellers to NSW.
Produced by tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, the films shine a spotlight on seven feelings most sought after by consumers: joy, connection, freedom, awe, rejuvenation, belonging and adventure.
Minister for enterprise, investment and trade, minister for tourism and sport, and minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the time was right to take a more emotive-led approach to marketing the NSW visitor economy.
“The Feel New film series captures all the things I love about our State. It invites everyone to get out and appreciate the beauty and wonder of NSW and promises a return to the excitement and adventure that we all need to feel again,” Ayres said.
Developed by Destination NSW in association with Leo Burnett Australia, the Feelings Films align with the Feel New brand, developed to differentiate NSW from other destinations by focusing on its collision of unique and diverse nature and cultural offerings, which energise travellers long after their visit ends.
Destination NSW chief executive officer, Steve Cox, said the Feel New film series continued the fresh new approach to the tourism and major event agency’s strategy for promoting NSW.
“The strategic thinking behind Feel New was to tap into this consumer desire to feel; to build an enduring creative platform to market and promote NSW through its many and varied cultural and natural experiences, which are powerfully captured in these films,” said Cox.
