Global James Bond Day, whatever next? Ahead the release of Skyfall, the 23th spy film  James Bond, as well as to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the character on 5 November, Britain's national tourism agency VisitBritain launched its biggest ever film tourism campaign to encourage all fans to come to Britain,  the home of Bond. Bringing up the slogan “Bond is Great Britain”, the national tourism agency rolled out various campaigns, among others:
  • To carry out the first ever film tourism ad which will be shown in cinemas in a number of countries like Australia, Brazil, Germany and the US.
  • To spread the campaign through the digital and social media world, including to offer an online experience called “Agent UK” that allow people to complete five online missions. The winner will be granted a luxury trip to the UK on a British Airways Flight.
  •  To hold a sweepstake competition in each of the 21 markets in which VisitBritain operates and winners will win visits to the UK where they will get the chance to “Live Like Bond”
The long-waited movie Skyfall is scheduled to have its UK Premier on 23 October 2012 and will play in UK Cinema starting from 26 October. I don’t know if it’s the whole Olympic Legacy thing but I seem to be mad into anything British at the moment.  I think it’s great to promote our film industry and who better than Bond.  I know the British film industry has a bit of a reputation for Gangster type films and I guess Bond fits into that bill but we also do great comedy’s don’t we?  Anyway buy British I say! That said sometimes you can’t buy British as the raw material is not produced here.  In that case I say support small family British Businesses like Zebrano!  Each of our rattan furniture models are designed and manufactured to the finest quality. Just like this Budget Rattan Corner Sofa, for instance. This larger corner unit would enhance any garden or conservatory. With its modular units, you can even place each peace individually or together in perfect visual composition. And the available brown cushions make this beautiful corner set look greater with the look of luxury and style. I bet that Bond will be sitting on some rattan garden furniture in the upcoming movie.  I’ll be sure to point it out if I’m right!
