TAG Heuer

To promote “La Maison”—TAG Heuer’s touring museum—the Swiss luxury watchmaker has launched an online-to-offline campaign titled “Treasure Hunt in the Chamber of Secrets” to engage its fans. The brand encourages those who visit the touring museum in Shanghai and Beijing to scan a QR code provided at the exhibit to access to the campaign webpage, and answer questions on “the chamber of secrets.” Participants with correct answers are eligible to redeem a gift on-site; those who wear their TAG Heuer timepieces to the exhibit can receive gifts as well.
