  • U.S. Wine On-line Promotion 2022

    April – August 2022

    Seoul, Korea

    To help U.S. wine capitalize on new growth opportunities emerging in South Korea, ATO Seoul plans to organize a ‘U.S. Wine On-line Promotion’ in 2022 together with a group of wine import distributors. The promotion, managed by a professional wine market PR agency contractor, will engage with a large number of opinion-leading wine consumers via various on-line platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Blogs, and Internet homepages) for three separate seasons (six weeks each) – April-May, June-July, and July-August. Each season will have three designated themes and deploy on-line postings under each theme for two weeks. The themes designated will be creative, unique, and fun to attract quick consumer attention. Each on-line posting will feature a dozen U.S. wines suggested by the import distributors that fits the theme with links to retail shops where consumers can place ‘smart orders’. Consumers will be encouraged to react to the promotion by comments, re-twitting, or leaving tasting notes. Consumers who reacted will be offered a chance to attend complimentary wine tasting events organized by the import distributors at the end of each season of the promotion.
