From cane toad takeovers to goannas holding the loungeroom hostage, with over 100 years of helping Queenslanders get back on track, Suncorp Insurance has seen it all.
Leo Burnett has created a new campaign, “No One Knows Queensland Like A Queenslander”, that demonstrates Suncorp’s unique understanding of Queensland life and cover for life’s quintessentially Queensland moments.
Most Queenslanders know that being up north brings with it some distinctive challenges, and this integrated campaign aims to increase consideration of the Suncorp Insurance brand in Queensland by demonstrating that they truly understand Queensland life.
Suncorp EGM brand & marketing, Mim Haysom said: “As a brand and business born and bred in Queensland, Suncorp really knows and understands the unique and rather unusual insurance situations our customers encounter in our home state.
“Whether it’s big events like storms or those everyday quintessential Queensland claims, we’re definitely in the position to reassure our customers that we’ve got Queensland covered.”
Leo Burnett executive creative director, Grant McAloon commented: “Queensland is an awesome place to live. Beautiful beaches, a laid back lifestyle and the mighty Maroons.
“But Queenslanders also know that life up North brings with it some unique challenges.
“As Queenslanders themselves, Suncorp gets it.
“They’ve seen it all — with some truly bizarre claims from their long heritage in the Queensland market.
“We were able to bring to life some fun scenes that Queenslanders will really relate to, and show how Suncorp helps Queenslanders bounce back.”
“No One Knows Queensland Like A Queenslander” will appear on broadcast television, geo targeted OOH, programmatic display, social and radio.
