Three Things to Avoid in Your Hong Kong Communications Campaign

Updated: Jul 2

Creating effective international communications campaigns requires a deep understanding of your audience and a commitment to sensitivity and respect around attitudes, values and beliefs. Global marketers should consider avoiding these three things in their campaigns:

  1. Religious Iconography: Avoid religious imagery, such as the Buddha, unless it is directly relevant and handled by local experts with the utmost respect and accuracy.

  2. Stereotypes and Idiosyncrasies: Avoid stereotyping or mocking cultural figures. It is not only offensive but can also alienate a significant portion of your audience.

  3. Stereotyping Gender Roles: Hong Kong is a modern metropolis with women leading several organisations, so avoid using outdated or stereotypical portrayals of gender roles.


Navigating cultural sensitivities with care and respect is crucial in communications campaigns. By avoiding these common pitfalls, brands can create campaigns that resonate positively with diverse audiences.
