Positive message for the traveller
Sunweb Group will start taking people on holidays again on Friday 19 June, one day before the summer officially start, the perfect time to celebrate the fact that travellers can go on holiday again.
Tim van den Bergh, CCO of Sunweb Group explains the campaign: “With The International Day of Holidays we want to send a positive message to everyone who loves to travel. As a travel organization, we think it is important to show that we can still welcome everyone to the most beautiful locations. ” The campaign was launched with SPARK, the internal Sunweb Group Agency. “We see the campaign as a new beginning and are looking forward to a great summer. This is not just for the Dutch, but for travellers all over the world. ”
