Another Tourism Slogan That Ignores the Tourist
In a June 2 blog post, I wrote that the new VisitPhiladephia slogan was like a manufacture saying “Buy Me”. There is really nothing in the slogan for the tourist target market.
It looks like a country “across the pond” is falling into the same trap. The Swedish Travel & Tourism Council has changed its name to “VisitSweden”.
Admittedly, Sweden has much more to offer than Philadelphia, in my opinion – beautiful Stockholm, its many breathtaking lakes and forests, mountain hiking and Swedish culture.
Having said that, in my opinion, VisitSweden is as wrong-headed as VisitPhiladelphia; neither gives the tourist a tangible reason to visit, unlike the nixed Michigan slogan of ”Find Your True North”.
