NEW YORK, NY (Dec. 15, 2014) — The Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) will recognize Exclusive Resorts with three Bronze Adrian Awards for public relations and digital marketing excellence at the 58th annual Adrian Awards, the largest and most prestigious travel marketing competition globally.
This year’s contest garnered more than 1,200 entries from around the world, with entries judged by top executives throughout the industry.
At its core, Exclusive Resorts comprises a carefully vetted collection of more than 300 privately managed villas in iconic destinations from Cabo to Vail, Costa Rica to Paris and the Bahamas to Tuscany. During the 58th annual Adrian Awards, the Club will be recognized with Bronze Adrian Awards for two of its public relations campaigns, the “Exclusive Resorts Gateway Product Launch” with the support of NIKE Communications and Siren Communications and its strategic “Locked In” partnership with Barneys New York supported by The Brandman Agency and The Eighth Floor. Additionally, the Club will be recognized with a third Bronze Award celebrating its innovative “Destinations in Focus Photo Contest” in partnership with Leica Camera and Sparkloft Media for digital marketing excellence in the social media space.
“It is an exciting time for the marketing team at Exclusive Resorts as we prepare to launch a new brand campaign and website in 2015 that will touch on the transformative power of travel and the unique experiences our guests collect along the way,” says Kristen Nolte, Chief Marketing Officer of Exclusive Resorts. “This recognition from HSMAI reinforces our commitment to finding innovative and engaging ways to generate awareness for Exclusive Resorts in the ever-evolving luxury landscape.”
HSMAI will pay tribute to Exclusive Resorts during the annual HSMAI Adrian Awards Gala, a black-tie affair attended by more than 1,000 hospitality, travel and tourism-marketing executives at the New York Marriott Marquis on Feb. 23.
“We are continually amazed by the creativity of the Adrian Award submissions,” said Fran Brasseux, HSMAI executive vice president. “We saw imaginative campaigns that got results in all categories, and we’re excited about honoring this year’s Adrian Award winners in February.”
