Vera Bradley Launches International Marketing Campaign

This spring, Vera Bradley, Inc. (Nasdaq:VRA) is embarking on a new initiative to expand brand awareness in Japan. The branding campaign is designed to create recognition among Japanese consumers as Vera Bradley takes its first steps toward being a globally recognized brand.

As part of this initiative, the company plans to host a private media event on February 7 followed by a public event in Tokyo on April 1 and 2. Ongoing marketing plans include the launch of verabradley.co.jp as well as pop-up stores.

“This campaign is part of an ongoing effort to connect with the Japanese consumer,” said Michael C. Ray, CEO. He added, “Our designs have sparked positive response from Japanese tourists in our Hawaii and northern California stores and consumer research we’ve conducted in Tokyo indicates opportunity. Therefore, we plan to employ initiatives to develop the same level of brand enthusiasm in Japan that we enjoy in the states.”
