One Day Brand Retreat

This energizing and stimulating Retreat features discussions and interactive workshops to jump start your brand planning. It address the critical issues for revealing  a compelling and competitive brand for the city.

A One-Day City Brand Retreat is custom-designed to get your leadership team onto the same page to commence your brand journey. We simplify destination branding - what it is, its benefits, how it works, spotlight the steps for success and uncover key issues specific to your city. This includes an exploration of your brand strengths and challenges, and the critical marketing issues and barriers to be addressed.

We conclude the day with an in-depth briefing and Q&A session with senior executives to share observations and discuss ideas for addressing brand and city image related issues.


The Retreat takes one day, plus pre-event research and preparation.
