HMS signs MoU with Turismo Andalucia to navigate China’s spending boom

Attracting Chinese tourists is important for Turismo Andalucía. With the Ministry of Culture and Tourism reporting a 47.3% growth in Chinese tourism receipts to 632.6 billion yuan ($89 billion) this past Lunar New Year, the opportunity to engage with this market is more promising than ever. While festivities may have ended, the momentum continues, providing an ideal occasion to deploy innovative strategies and appeal to Chinese travellers who are actively planning their post-holiday adventures.

The MOU seeks to enhance HUAWEI Mobile Services and Turismo Andalucía’s cooperation in promoting Andalucía as a tourist destination and experience in the Chinese market, and to achieve mutually agreed goals through this strategic collaboration.

This will be accomplished through a cooperative framework that includes various co-marketing initiatives. Turismo Andalucía’s cooperation framework comprises direct campaigns, co-marketing activities, events, and partnerships with third-party entities. Meanwhile, Petal Ads will provide resources such as the Petal Ads platform, broader marketing cooperation, technology support in China and Europe, and tailored project solutions.

Both organisations are dedicated to advancing their cooperation throughout 2024 to elevate and showcase Andalucía as the leading European destination for Chinese travellers. They envision developing successful co-marketing and broader partnership strategies, as they continue their collaborative efforts in the years ahead.

“Teaming up with a robust mobile advertising platform is key for us to understand Chinese customers better and strategically engage with them,” said Gomez. “This agreement builds upon the strong ties between Huawei Mobile Services and Turismo Andalucía in working towards driving inbound tourism to the dynamic holiday destination that is Andalucía.”
