City With No Limits (Houston slogan)

The Greater Houston Partnership (GHP) announced a 2014 campaign for a new slogan for the city of Houston—“Houston: The City With No Limits.” The campaign sought to highlight Houston as a great place to live and to visit in addition to being a city where one could find a job.

Killeen, Texas, had the slogan “City Without Limits” in the 2000s.

Houston is the seat of Harris County, and its metropolitan area is the fifth-largest in the U.S., with over 6 million people.

No Limits: New image campaign highlights Houston’s high points
By David Kaplan | June 3, 2014 | Updated: June 3, 2014 6:11pm
Many outsiders see Houston as a good place to find a job but not a great place to live, officials with the Greater Houston Partnership say.

So the economic development group is touting the city’s quality of life with a new image campaign unveiled Tuesday on the jumbo screen at NRG Stadium, featuring the slogan “Houston: The City With No Limits.”

The debut was accompanied by a video showing split-second images of the skyline, ballet dancers, the first moon landing, the galleria and smiling faces of Houstonians.

Here’s a better way to sell Houston

Last week, the Greater Houston Partnership unveiled a multimillion dollar, multiyear image campaign to convince businesses to relocate here and to lure talented workers to live here.

The campaign slogan is “Houston: The City With No Limits.”
(...)
Add those to previous slogans like, “Houston: Expect the Unexpected” (I hated that one), and “Houston is Hot,” and “Houston: Infinite Possibilities” and “Houston: It’s Worth It” and “Space City: a Space of Infinite Possibilities.” The last one doesn’t even make sense.

Basically, we’re throwing every cliché against the wall and seeing if anything sticks.
