Ras Al Khaimah’s ‘Get More’ summer campaign generates tremendous response

Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has revealed the preliminary results of ‘Get More’, its brand-new digital-first campaign to position the Emirate as an attractive summer destination for domestic and international travellers.

Launched in April and running until the end of September 2023, ‘Get More’ has already seen exceptional results at the start of summer, especially in key markets India, Kazakhstan, Germany and KSA. Exceeding industry benchmarks, the summer campaign has generated more than 336 million impressions and seen high engagement with 1.2 million clicks to date as well as above 85% Video Completion Rates (VCR) in KSA and Kuwait. Seeking to increase summer bookings across Ras Al Khaimah’s stunning hotels and resorts, the multi-lingual campaign takes the entire travel ecosystem into account covering B2B and B2C marketing across 10 key markets, including UAE, UK, Germany, GCC, India, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Kazakhstan. Using a full mix of channels including social media, programmatic, in-flight videos, digital outdoor and OTA as well as highly nuanced campaign assets, ‘Get More’ aims to drive brand affinity in key markets, increase reach and awareness in new geographies and drive visitation in what is traditionally a low season.

“Through curated content designed to appeal to specific audiences and traveller preferences, ‘Get More’ perfectly brings to life the sheer breadth of experiences to be discovered in Ras Al Khaimah,” commented Raki Phillips, CEO, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority. “The post-pandemic travel experience has flipped the script on what a vacation should look like, calling for destinations that are more agile, relevant, and responsive in a highly dynamic sector. Through positioning the Emirate as accessible, down to earth yet brimming with things to do and see, we will resonate with a wider audience and draw more visitors to the destination this summer and beyond,” added Phillips.

Ras Al Khaimah, the Nature Emirate, offers a captivating range of tourist attractions to experience and explore, from mountains to mangroves, deserts to destination resorts, and beaches to bucket list thrills. With the ‘Get More’ campaign, RAKTDA is spotlighting the Emirate as a one-stop destination for fun, family, nature, adventure, summertime cool, and much more. Moreover, it highlights Ras Al Khaimah’s emergence as a regional leader in responsible, sustainable tourism, focusing on the environment, culture, conservation and liveability.

The Emirate attracted 1.13 million annual visitors – the highest-ever number of arrivals superseding pre-pandemic levels. Infrastructure-wise, it saw a 17% yearly growth in hotel supply to over 8,000 keys.
