In 2007, 4.0 million passengers took a cruise.<br />In 2007 the most popular country for cruise ports of call in Europe was Italy with 8.0 million passengers.

  5. 5. THE COMPANIES IN THE CRUISE INDUSTRY<br />We can estimate 500 cruise ships operating around the world but only between 350 and 400, will remain operative in 2015 due to technical requirements.<br /> There are around 80 cruise companies operating in the market.<br /> Two companies handle 65% to70% of the market basically operating in US/Latin America and Europe:<br /> - Carnival Cruises (US).<br /> - Royal Caribbean (US).<br />

  20. 20. MARKET SUMMARY<br />The advertising industry has not consider seriously cruise market as a potential growth for their business mainly due to a lack of information.<br /> Latest ships are like big neighborhood spaces.<br /> In 2007, advertising investment in out-of-home media worldwide was <br /> $29 billion while on-line reached $30 billion. In Spain, outdoor was € 600 million and on-line € 400 million; being the only two media gaining market share in advertising industry.<br /> In four to five years, Europe will have 150 cruise ships and more than 7 million passengers embarking in a growing market.<br /> CRUISING CAN BE AN EXCEPTIONAL PLATFORM <br /> TO MEET ADVERTISERS EXPECTATIONS.<br />
  21. 21. THE ADVERTISING<br /> It is responsibility of advertising experts to organize<br /> advertising / communication plans for the cruise industry.<br /> The ship has to be considered and treated as an advertising support <br /> and a plan to exploit it is needed in order to generate additional income <br /> for the cruise industry.<br />
  22. 22. ADVERTISINGTHE KEY CONSIDERATIONS<br /> The advertising can not be intrusive during the cruise time. Advertising and promotional activities should fit into the leisure atmosphere.<br /> We will be working in the advertainment - digital communication world.<br />
  23. 23. THE ADVERTISING<br />Advertisers are demanding new media opportunities to reach their targets. <br />The cruise industry, through 300, ships is reaching more than 13 million people.<br />The conditions offered by a cruise is unique in the advertising industry. <br />You have a captive target, in most of the cases for 3 to 7 days, ideally positioned to receive messages in a relax atmosphere.<br />You can reach all members of the family<br />You can interact with them and obtain valuable data.<br /> You can also make consumer segmentation trough the price of the cabins and the cost and type of the cruise destination.<br />You can impact the target on board through different support activities.<br /> It is necessary to work on the data to introduce advertisers and media to our potential as a new advertising support. <br /> Cruise marketing has to lead the advertising/communication business and play an important role in the advertising market.<br />
  24. 24. THE ADVERTAINMENT<br /> THE ADVERTISING OF THE FUTURE <br /> THE ADVERTAINMENT<br /> Agustín Medina <br />“To mix or to melt advertising with the entertainment, the message of the contents of the media, is the common denominator of this way of facing up the advertising communication. <br />The dream of every advertiser. His advertising has to be an indissoluble part of the content, without interrupting the enjoyment of the audience, but oposite side, contributin to encrease the realism of the proposal of the entertainment.”<br />
  25. 25. The concept advertainment comes from the combination of two words in English, advertising (publicity) and entertainment. The idea of this concept is to advertise at the same time you entertain<br />FUNDAMENTALS<br />In general, the ADVERTAINMENT entertains, and while it entertains you, his potential client or consumer, fixes his brand, and it generates an exchange, entertainment for brand, brand for entertainment. For the attention of the users, the supplier of the entertainment has to generate interest in the participation of the users through the offer of a prize, competitions, rankings etc. The games are generated based in concepts of the product or event, to become a communication system. <br /> The power of the Advertainment <br />The Advertainment allows introducing corporative values and attributes of the products between the attention fields of advertising favorable to a consumer segment very similar. It binds the brand with an exclusive experience in a market of clone products. It links up with the most elusive audience to the traditional media. <br />It loyalties his audience and it fulfills into virtual communities build looking forward to his brand. <br />Once it is locate, it can develop several bi directional strategies of communication and marketing in the web. <br />It allows generating a user’s base, with a little engagement with the brand.<br />

  41. 41. THE ADVERTISING ON BOARD<br />MOBILE ACTIVITIES<br /> With the objective of combining passenger leisure and generate income we can create different alternatives through passengers phones creating, for instance, on board clubs so they can know the passengers with same hobby (cards, sailing, travel, reading, etc.) and make specific meetings with them.<br /> A list of mobile capabilities will be developed.<br /> Additionally we will create a data base for marketing purpose.<br />
  42. 42. THE ADVERTISING ON BOARD<br />SAMPLING<br />Sampling is a growing practice amongst advertisers. <br />A cruise is the perfect place to try the product at all levels. <br />You can interact with the product in an exceptional relaxed situation.<br />A captain’s welcome pack can be created where the passenger receives<br />product samples like soft drinks, cosmetics, snacks, magazines, coupons, etc<br />
  43. 43. THE ADVERTISING ON BOARD<br />MEETINGS WITH PASSENGERS<br />Advertiser use groups to sell their products, especially when they need to explain in depth about its benefits.<br /> 25 person conference rooms can be rented for that purpose having daily meetings which allow passengers the opportunity to learn about interesting new products in a relaxed atmosphere..<br /> For instance, Nestlé launch a new chocolate and, through videos, explain the history of chocolate and offer product trials. Or a bank card company explains in depth why they should join them. A publishing company might invite authors to read extracts from their new books. <br />
  44. 44. THE ADVERTISING ON BOARD<br />Travel Incentives.<br /> The incentive is a way to integrate, motivate and engage the objectives of the company to the employee is being referred to lately as one of the best weapons in the HR department. Tailor madepresentations should to be prepared for Human Resources managers.<br /> The cruises have to play a much more active role by opening customer opportunities it can offer and its contents.<br />
  45. 45. THE ADVERTISINGHOW TO EXPLOIT THE NEW AREAS<br /> The fixed outdoor will be offered as an exclusive to main outdoor companies. <br /> As they do on land they will have to pay a fee if they want to operate on our ships. <br /> They will have to install the digital supports (with naval accommodation supervision) maintain and commercialize the spaces.<br /> To make this operation successful we need to offer them the number of ships, destinations, space per ship, passenger and port data, length of the cruise, capacity per boat, technical data, etc. so they can judge media potential.<br /> The part of entertainment will be coordinated from the marketing dept. of the cruise company rating the different activities.<br />
  46. 46. ACTION PLAN<br /> Study Carnival’s current work and activities implemented in marketing / advertising area at international level while defining opportunities.<br /> Prepare a document to be presented to outdoor media companies and advertisers to get their reactions and offer.<br /> This document has to be done with a global perspective for the future with a potential of 350 ships around the world used as advertising support and a growing market of 15 million passengers.<br /> Use Spain as a test market implementing an advertising plan on selected<br /> ships. <br /> If successful Spain will develop the European on-board, cruise advertising.<br /> This study can be done through consulting services or through the creation of a new job inside a client structure.<br />
  47. 47. REVENUES FROM ADVERTISING<br /> We will have to develop rates for all different levels support and activity.<br /> We will present to the 3 international leading outdoor media companies our plan and will listen to their comments or proposals regarding the fixed outdoor on decks. <br /> The rest of the activities to be rated for advertisers consideration.<br /> Our objective is to consider the ship as one of the least expensive media in terms on cost per impact due to his unique and outstanding benefits.<br />
  48. 48. INTERNATIONAL OUTDOOR COMPANIES<br />JC DECAUX with € 2 billion billings operating in Europe, the U S, South America and Asia ( 54 countries and 9.000 workers).<br />CLEAR CHANNEL with income of $3.3 billion operating in Europe, the US, ASIA and South America (in 64 countries).<br />VIACOM OUTDOOR with income of $2.0 billion operating in North America, Europe and Asia (10.000 workers).<br /> They reach around 150 to 175 million people.<br />
