Experience the King’s Cross Station Philippine Takeover from the 20th to 24th of July

by | 13 Jul, 2016 | Travel Industry Updates

From July 1st to July 28th 2016, London King’s Cross station will be dominated by the Philippine Department of Tourism in collaboration with Round the World Experts.

As part of the Visit the Philippines Again 2016 campaign – and following the success of the recent London Waterloo station takeover – the Philippine Department of Tourism is launching its second station domination series at King’s Cross station. This event is out of a total of three station takeover projects, the final of which is to occur in November 2016 during World Travel Market.

Between the 20th and 24th July, a unique experiential zone will be activated at King’s Cross station where, once again, commuters will be able to have a taste of what the Philippines has to offer.

Central to this campaign is the newly founded partnership between the Philippine Department of Tourism and Round the World Experts which will promote packages to the Philippines throughout the duration of the campaign. Round the World Experts will also be present at the station to engage commuters visiting the experiential zone.

As part of the partnership with PDOT, the Philippines as a destination will be promoted throughout both Round the World Experts’ active networks during the campaign including their website and social media platforms, published newsletters and the “Experts” magazine of Flight Centre. Furthermore, the Philippines will also remain an “always on” destination on Flight Centre and Round the World Experts for additional marketing support until the end of the year.

During the King’s Cross domination project, consumers will have the opportunity to win a 9-day luxury holiday for two to the Philippines. The winners will initially stay at the exclusive five-star Conrad Manila Hotel followed by a selection of luxurious accommodations at two of the most beautiful island destinations, El Nido Resorts and The Lind Boracay. Patterned after Round the World Expert’s “Discover the Philippines” package, the prize also includes international return flights to the Philippines courtesy of Philippine Airlines as well as domestic return flights to Boracay by Flight Centre. Philippine Airlines, on its part, is supporting the campaign

by offering special fares and international air tickets for more competitions as part of their 75th anniversary.

Consumers can enter the competition during the station domination project by taking a picture of themselves (or elements of the campaign) at experiential zone at King’s Cross station and uploading it to social media with the hashtag #VPAholidaysUK. Alternatively, they can download Visit Philippines mobile app or simply enter via the official website at the following link: (More information can also found the Facebook/PhilippinesinUK

Winner of the competition will be announced on the 16th of August. Instant prizes will also be available daily during the Kings Cross takeover campaign, with social media live updates to follow.
