“We’ve invested more than ever in the brand with strong promotions in the on and off-trade to increase footfall, rate of sale and, ultimately, profit for our customers. We hope Corona fans will enjoy the ‘taste of Ibiza spirit’ that we’re bringing to the UK this summer and we invite them to step onto ‘Corona Island’.”

The campaign will be supported by print and outdoor activity, which will focus on the core idea that, “for the full enjoyment of Corona, it’s the attitude that matters, not the location”.
