Making that holiday XXL
The German travel agency Dicke Reisen specialises in planning travel arrangements for overweight people. It was created by a curvy lady fed up of encountering inconveniences due to her weight when travelling. The agency caters for customers by offering special discounts to fly in business class (where seats are larger), suggesting hotels with larger beds and proposing activities that are not too physically demanding.

Certain niche markets are growing considerably in size and voice. Does this warrant brands having to create specialised and tailored experiences for some of these groups?

A Portuguese digital photo album company created a campaign based on Angela Merkel's visit to Portugal in November. The campaign consisted of producing a gift basket with the country's best products, a photo album and a letter inviting the Chancellor to return. The idea was to publicise Portugal as “ The Best Destination” and the aim was to create the largest photo album in the world filled with contributions of the Portuguese people showing what they love about their country.
