With the increasing intensity of urban competition, city branding strategies are becoming more widely adopted by major cities around the world, including Jakarta. Despite experiencing political turbulence, the Plus Jakarta City of Collaboration campaign is considered a breakthrough amongst other Indonesian city brands. The aim of this study is to question the success of the campaign to Anholt’s city branding hexagon theory using explanatory research and qualitative approach. This theory discusses six variables that create a successful city branding: presence, place, potential, pulse, people, and prerequisite.
