Harbour City is the FIRST shopping mall in Hong Kong to win this international award. The “VIVA” in the VIVA Best-of-the-Best Award represents Vision, Innovation, Value and Achievement. The Award honors and recognizes the most outstanding examples of shopping center design and development, sustainability, marketing, and community service worldwide. Shortlisted campaigns include gold award winners of ICSC Shopping Center Award competition in other regions (including Canada, Latin America, Europe, North Africa and Middle East). “Rubber Duck @ Harbour City” was the shorlisted campaign for Asia-Pacific region as it received 2 Gold awards in “Public Relations & IMG_9703.CR2 5/18/2014  --  3:29:12Events” and in “Social Media” Category in the 2013 ICSC Asia Pacific Shopping Center Awards.

“This center is an exceptional example of an innovative marketing campaign that merges both traditional and digital marketing. With their ‘Rubber Duck @ Harbour City’ campaign, this center showed how to bring an idea to life,” said Michael P. Kerchval, president and CEO for ICSC.

Harbour City’s  creativity and execution helped spread joy around the city by inviting a gigantic inflatable rubber duck exhibition to Hong Kong.  To raise the online presence of Harbour City locally and internationally, the center invited internationally acclaimed artist Florentin Hofman to exhibit his masterpiece, a 16.5 meter large rubber duck at Victoria Harbour.  With Victoria Harbour as its giant bathtub, the rubber duck was literally a maritime art exhibition, attracting global media coverage, and further establishing Harbour City as the destination in Hong Kong .  The integrated campaign increased mall traffic, and achieved the goal of bringing joy and happiness to the city. “Rubber Duck @ Harbour City” has won local and overseas awards including 4 awards in Hong Kong, 2 awards in mainland China, 8 awards in Asia-Pacific and 1 international award.
