The Story Never Ends: Campaign Update

After launching in May2021, Edinburgh’s The Story Never Ends campaign has entered its fourth and final phase in October 2022. Here is a quick overview on the campaign’s success to date.

To date, the campaign has delivered incredible results with nearly all channels delivering above market average. The Story Never Ends microsite has inspired 500k visitors with bespoke blogs generating 42.3k business referrals - hundreds of thousands more across the website. Campaign videos were viewed 2.7million times with 462k complete views.

Resident Rewards Edinburgh, which launched December ’21, has also been a success with the Resident Rewards website welcoming 121k visitors and generating 12k business referrals.

As we enter the final phase this winter, we patiently wait to hear if the campaign will win the two CIPR Awards that it has been nominated for. Stay tuned for an update.  

The final phase will focus on Dark Edinburgh, Entertaining Edinburgh - Winter Sparkles, New to Edinburgh in 2023, and Evenings in Edinburgh as well as top performing summer themes including Neighbourhoods and Fame and Fortune.

Accessibility & Inclusivity Survey

Is your business inclusive and accessible for everyone?

A reminder that the Forever Edinburgh Accessibility and Inclusivity Tourism Questionnaire will be closing on 15 November.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. The results will be an invaluable source of information about what Edinburgh’s tourism businesses offer both visitors and residents.

Insights generated will be used to promote your accessible and inclusive services across the Forever Edinburgh platforms as well as in paid campaign activity next year.

Thank you in advance for your time and participation.
