The Brazilian Tourism Board (EMBRATUR) launched the second phase of its “Brazil Sensational” advertising campaign with a total renovation of the Web site Significantly marked by digital media presence, this phase boasts an online media investment increased by more than ten percent as compared to the campaigns’ first phase and represents nearly 30 percent of the U.S. advertising spend of $13 million.

EMBRATUR President, Jeanine Pires, explains how the investments increase in digital media is based on key audiences increased use of the internet as their sole source of information when booking travel packages, airfare and hotels.

“Our objective is to show the public Brazil in real time through mediums that are already a part of their daily routine, while taking advantage of the innumerable possibilities the Internet offers,” Pires noted. “We want to make it easy for people to visit Brazil, but also encourage them to learn about all our country has to offer.”

The digital phase of the campaign includes a social networking presence on sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Hi5. Additionally, EMBRATUR created a YouTube channel with videos of Brazil and increased the country’s sponsored Google presence. EMBRATUR also notes the importance of traditional media Web sites such as CNN, The New York Times and Washington Post with presence in each.

“Not only does the Brazil Network provide information for the consumer, but it is also significant for business travelers, tour operators and travel agents,” said Walter Vasconcelos, EMBRATUR Director of Marketing. “The site provides agents with ample information, images and details, all of which help to excite potential travelers about Brazil.”


The Brazilian Tourism Board Web site,, was recently enhanced with major changes to the layout and content, offering a more pleasurable experience for visitors.

New features to the site include increased language options, promotion availability and high-resolution images and videos. Offering additional language diversity, the Web site is now available to more visitors globally with seven language options: Portuguese of Portugal, Portuguese of Brazil, English, Spanish, French, German and Italian.

Promotions, deals and exclusive travel services are now available on the “Brazil Now,” offering further reason to visit and seek the latest deals.

The new portal is also equipped with more than 6,000 high definition images and videos available for download. Logos and other promotional materials are offered as supporting materials for travel agents and tour operators as well.


“Brazil Sensational,” EMBRATUR’s international advertising campaign launched in September 2008 and is slated to run through June 2010, with a total investment of U.S. $88 million. Beyond the digital media, the campaign also includes traditional print media, out-of-home components on buses and within airports, among others.

The advertising campaign aims to show potential travelers how to “live Brazil” through various experiences and sensations. Each component highlights contrasting experiences throughout Brazil with historical and modern attractions, adventure and food, culture and beach, events and the Amazon forest. On the whole, this campaign works within the scope of EMBRATUR’s overall marketing campaign, The Aquarela Plan which centers around five key segments: Sun and Beach, Ecotourism and Adventure, Culture, Sports and Business, Events and Incentives.

The Brazilian Federal Government and EMBRATUR have implemented the Aquarela Plan which calls for generating consumer awareness about Brazil and attracting more tourists. The established target for the U.S. sector is increasing the annual numbers for tourists entering the country to 9 million, and attracting a total amount of $8 billion in revenue by 2010.
