HWBK To Put Christchurch On The Map With Aussie Visitors

Award-winning creative communications agency History Will Be Kind (HWBK) has been appointed as the retained agency of record in Australia by ChristchurchNZ – the city’s economic development and promotions agency – following a competitive pitch process.

From stunning natural scenery to adventure, art and culture, the best in relaxation plus incredible food and wine, the HWBK team will showcase all that Christchurch has to offer, building destination awareness and driving visitation for Australian travellers to support the city’s post pandemic recovery and beyond.

ChristchurchNZ Head of Tourism, Kath Low said the organisation was delighted to appoint HWBK to build Christchurch’s reputation as a world class city and the gateway to explore New Zealand’s South Island.

“HWBK are experts at what they do with a strong network of contacts and the smarts to help put Christchurch on the map for Australians. The team demonstrated stand-out passion matched with sharp insights, integrated strategic thinking and creativity – all of which will help us supercharge awareness, curiosity and desire amongst travellers.”

It’s a brilliant opportunity to use creative storytelling to showcase a breathtaking and relatively undiscovered destination right on our doorstep.

It’s amazing to see the travel sector booming once more and we have loved being part of the industry’s story of recovery, resilience and resurgence.”
