Summary of the Campaign
The 2010 World Expo in Shanghai was visited by over 73 million people, included 246 participants and spanned 184 days. As the No.1 beer in China, Tsingtao needed to represent the nation during this once in a lifetime event.

China does not have a recognizable beer culture, so we gathered and owned all the unique drinking rituals and etiquettes from every region. Then we introduced China’s beer culture to millions of foreigners at the 2010 World Expo and let them experience it first-hand.

Over 22 million people participated over 184 days, sales in Shanghai increased by 72% and the campaign generated US $7.9 million worth of earned media.

Execution
Experience 30 different ways to drink at 50 different pubs and restaurants for free.
When people flew into Shanghai International Airport for the 2010 World Expo, they received Tsingtao’s Guide to Chinese Beer Culture. The guide directed them to the pubs and restaurants around the city where they could drink free Tsingtao and experience these amazing beer rituals and etiquettes. Subway, outdoor, print and a television program reinforced the campaign.
