Not only does this campaign champion local emerging artists from various cities around the USA, but it uses its musical culture to engage with international travellers, and this is all made possible through a strong brand partnership.

Tracy Lanza |Brand USA

Being the backdrop of one of the most watched TV shows today means one thing for the featured destination, people want to visit. To be able to experience the locations they've seen on screen first-hand, explore in the footsteps of their favourite characters and to feel part of the magic themselves has seen a surge in visitors across these locations. Game of Thrones is a truly global phenomenon, and the many iconic scenes have been filmed in destinations around the world from Croatia to Northern Ireland. This panel will discuss the impact of screen tourism, and how to leverage the power of this to maximise the benefits and opportunities for your destination.
