Heineken - Exploring the World's Cities

Heineken, a global beer brand, introduced the "Exploring the World's Cities" campaign featuring the Heineken Cities bottle edition and an adventurous journey through impressive cities worldwide. This initiative by Heineken aims to celebrate the boldness of men around the world.


According to a global brand survey conducted by BusinessWeek and Interbrand, Heineken is the only beer brand instantly recognizable by its label-free bottle. Heineken has become synonymous with beer worldwide. This success stems from the brand's early recognition of the importance of international business and building a global brand image. The company consistently sponsors renowned music and sports events such as the US Open, Heineken Classic Golf Tournament, Rugby World Cup, and a series of jazz music festivals.


  • Establish a strong connection between the brand and consumers.

  • Strengthen the brand's positioning and enhance its global reputation as a beloved beer brand worldwide.


Heineken portrays its target audience as ambitious men who strive to leave their mark on the world's major cities. They aspire to be known for their desire to "Open their world" and explore the world around them. However, they often struggle to break away from their local environment.

Heineken provides a solution through an integrated campaign with a single mission: to inspire and encourage individuals to discover the world within their own city. The campaign infiltrates the daily lives of Heineken enthusiasts through direct city-focused media.

The campaign's highlight is two "Sound of the World" grand events held in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi in early September 2015. These events promise to create explosive moments with cultural performances representing vibrant cities, accompanied by world-class lighting and music.


The TVC, titled "Explore the City," produced by Heineken and Agency Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam, depicts an exciting journey of a man following mysterious addresses found on a lost business card belonging to a woman named Eve.
