Have you seen the giant Amazon boxes that popped up around Birmingham last week? The boxes are a creative signal of the city’s official intent to pursue the tech giant’s second headquarters location.
The boxes are the first phase of the Bring Amazon to Birmingham – or “BringAtoB” – campaign, which will engage citizens in and around the city to share why Amazon should call the Magic City home. Citizens are encouraged to participate by using the hashtag #BringAtoB and tagging @amazon on social media, telling the tech giant why Birmingham is the perfect fit for HQ2. All #BringAtoB photos and comments will be captured and displayed on BringAtoB.com.
