To highlight the hospitality sector’s commitment to a conscientious approach in re-opening.

To provide industry support for the hospitality sector.

To encouraging consumers to be sensible and moderate in their alcohol consumption.

To raise awareness of the message among the target audiences.


The social media campaign, which was launched following the easing of the COVID-19 pandemic-related restrictions, highlighted the commitment of the hospitality sector to adopt a conscientious approach to re-opening while also encouraging consumers to be sensible and moderate in their alcohol consumption during the summer months. 

The idea was to use the best of what the hospitality industry had learnt from the pandemic situation and apply “must-have” working habits to engage consumers in a way that encouraged moderate alcohol consumption, and, to cultivate positive engagement the challenging period that tested everyone’s mental health.  A series of “stories and conversations” across multimedia, were used to send a much-needed positive message to targeted audiences to create a sense of fresh new beginnings, including moderate alcohol consumption.
