Kuala Lumpur, 8 January 2019 – Carlsberg brought to LIVE “Prosperity Begins with a POP!” this Chinese New Year (CNY) wishing consumers an abundance of Prosperity, Happiness, Wealth and Good Luck in vibrant red, green, pink and blue colours across its limited-edition packaging, promotions and campaign activities.
Held at Hao Xiang Chi Seafood in Pudu, KL, Carlsberg Malaysia feted approximately 500 trade partners and media guests to an enthralling and sumptuous CNY campaign launch gala dinner. Guests were captivated by the adaptation of the vibrant and colourful bottle caps and cans in red, green, pink and blue which painted a colourful ambience and celebratory festive mood.
Guests experienced the true CNY festive cheer as they engaged in the ongoing activities and promotions of Carlsberg’s “Prosperity Begins With A POP!” campaign carried out across pubs, restaurants, food courts, coffee shops as well as super-and-hypermarkets.
