Heineken Launches 2018 Retail Programming for Tiger Beer, Celebrating Year of the Dog

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Tiger Beer, Asia’s premier beer brand, is uncaging celebrations in 2018 for the Lunar New Year through retail and on-premise programming and festive artwork that celebrates the Year of the Dog. The bold, interpretive artwork tells a story that celebrates the old and the new in order to reignite the appreciation and understanding of festive traditions shared with family and friends.

Singaporean artist, Dawn Ang, known for her bold focus on creative storytelling, has transformed 2,000 red envelopes into a three dimensional Lunar New Year story featuring traditional icons in a creative new light with paper art techniques. Amy Tay, Tiger Brand Director, Five Points Trading Company commented, “Dawn’s artwork, formed from a curated selection of cultural symbols such as lanterns, firecrackers, blossoms and oranges, comes to life on Tiger packaging and promotional materials this season. These traditional symbols are believed to usher in greater prosperity and luck for those who celebrate the occasion.”

In addition to the limited-edition packaging, custom-designed retail and on-premise point of sale materials including posters, price cards, tuck cards, cooler decals, red envelopes, lanterns and playing cards are available to engage LDA+ shoppers and on-premise patrons and encourage them to choose Tiger Beer to celebrate and the iconic Lunar New Year feast of festive symbols, deep-rooted traditions and family reunions.

“Today, there are an estimated 21MM Asians in the U.S.,” Tay added, “This population segment is expected to make up 15% of U.S. population growth between 2010 – 2020 and will represent more than $1T in buying power in 2018[1]. Tiger Beer is an increasingly popular choice among

LDA+ Asian consumers and represents a significant opportunity for our retail partners to promote the brand and increase their bottom line. Our Lunar New Year program provides the elements they need to drive traffic and incremental sales throughout the 2018 Lunar New Year season.”
