Stopover Buddy

Stopover Buddy has been the most successful global campaign to date for Icelandair, undoubtedly achieved through a strong content rich strategy. With a share of voice of less than 1% against big spending competitors, Buddies delivered 1014 pieces of earned coverage estimated to be worth over £252 million in media value. The campaign increased Stopover bookings by a record 42%, creating incremental value for the business and achieving record recommendation levels of over 90%.

Ask Guðmundur

The power of a content-led approach and seven Icelandic Guðmundurs.  With a budget of only $2.1m, Iceland created a radically new type of tourism campaign using Responsive Content rather than traditional communications to rapidly change the attitudes and behaviours of tourists, adding $44.7m to the economy with a ROI of 21.3:1. "Iceland invites you to send your questions to #AskGudmundur. I gather that Iceland has a lot of folks called Guðmundur and they'll answer." President Barack Obama
