– National out of home advertising campaign live throughout October –
October 3rd 2012 – From 1st October Stella Artois launches a new responsible drinking advertising campaign. In keeping with the brand’s award winning “She is a Thing of Beauty” creative, the nationwide out of home advertisements feature the simple strapline ‘Like all works of art, one must take time to appreciate it. Please drink responsibly.’ The nationwide outdoor campaign will run throughout October.
“An important part of our dream to be the Best Beer Company in a Better World is doing all we can to ensure our products are enjoyed responsibly by consumers of legal drinking age” commented Phil Pick, Marketing Manager, Stella Artois Western Europe. “This campaign aims to deliver a very important message, whilst keeping with the same style and tone of advertisements that Stella Artois consumers know and enjoy.”
AB InBev’s dream to be the Best Beer Company in a Better World encompasses three pillars, responsible drinking, environment and community. As the world’s leading brewer, AB InBev encourages the responsible enjoyment of its products by adults of legal drinking age. The company works with its partners and customers to promote responsible attitudes toward alcohol consumption. At a global level AB InBev invested almost 55 million USD in 2011 in responsible drinking advertising and programs. It aims to invest at least an additional 245 million USD by the end of 2014.
