Place Branding

Place Branding

Just like companies and products, countries, cities, provinces and regions can also have distinct brand identities. Place Branding encompasses measuring that identity, evaluating its strengths and weaknesses and building and communicating differentiating and winning characteristics.

GfK delivers the Anholt-GfK Nation Brands IndexSM (NBI) and Anholt-GfK City Brands IndexSM (CBI). We assess, develop and implement brand strategies across nations, cities and regions, and provide the global and local insights needed to move a place‘s reputation forward. As well as increase the success of its business, trade and tourism efforts.

Anholt-GfK Nation Brands IndexSM (NBI)

We conduct the world‘s only comprehensive global nation branding survey. The Anholt-GfK Nation Brands IndexSM (NBI) helps governments, organizations and businesses understand, measure and ultimately build a strong national image and reputation. It measures the power and quality of each country‘s ‘brand image‘ by combining the following six dimensions:

  1. Exports
  2. Governance
  3. Culture and Heritage
  4. People
  5. Tourism
  6. Investment and Immigration

the flow of business, cultural and tourism activities. The CBI measures the following six dimensions:

  1. Presence
  2. Place
  3. Pre-requisite
