21 January 2011, Singapore – HSBC’s involvement in the sport of Golf globally will be offering golf enthusiasts two major tourmanents within two months.   The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in the Middle East is happening this week from 20 to 23 January 2011 while the HSBC Women’s Champions will be back in Singapore from 24 – 27 February at the same venue as the last 3 years at Tanah Merah Country Club Garden Course.

 

The world’s best women golfers will be in Singapore to vie for the increased prize purse of US$1.4 million.   Will last year’s winner, Japanese Ai Myazato be able to keep her title as the champion of the HSBC Women’s Champions tournament this year?

 

The Marketing Campaign
This year’s advertising campaign by advertising agency JWT showcases insights on the champions and knowledge surrounding the tournament in a fresh and engaging way. The players will remain as the key focus, with those closest to them furnishing little nuggets of information and insights into their lives.   This reinforces the brand idea of how HSBC provides customers a platform to discover a world of opportunities by providing them a chance to get closer to the international golfing elites such as Ji Yai Shin, Paula Creamer and Michelle Wie.

 

This year, HSBC has utilized the print, broadcast and outdoor mediums including buses, trains, billboards and digital platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, mobile applications, online banners and a specially created microsite.  This through-the-line campaign includes on ground activities such as the HSBC Golf ‘Live’ Challenge held from 21 – 23 January 2011.

I was at the media preview held on the first day together with other official bloggers Angela, Holly and Fazillah.  While I was busy snapping away with my Sony Alpha A33 DSLR, the girls had a great time trying out the iPhone application and you can read about their experience in their blogs.  Among some of the other activities that I witnessed included a photo session with the youth players from the HSBC Women’s Champions Qualifying Tournament 2011.
