The Land of Legends
Inheriting a legend
Admired for developing iconic resort branded residences such as the InterContinental® Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort in the south of Vietnam, BIM Land is among Vietnam’s trusted real estate developers. Its second branded residences collaboration with the Intercontinental Hotel Group emerged in the north of the country at one of the world’s favourite UNESCO World Heritage sites—the famous and fabled Halong Bay. Sedgwick Richardson was engaged to develop an integrated brand marketing solution for the InterContinental® Residences Halong Bay—the first world-class branded residences in the north—and to create premium marketing collateral.
“We worked closely with the Sedgwick Richardson team on the strategic branding and communication of the InterContinental® Residences Halong Bay. We are very impressed with their strategic thinking and their creative solution for this prestigious development. Halong Bay is famous for its legendary limestone formations and the team have reflected this enduring legacy in a way that will appeal to affluent buyers.”
