Integrated Marketing Summer Promotion
I love Best Western International, Inc because not only do they want the best experience for their customers when they are traveling, but they also want the very best for the individual hotel owners. I also love the Best Western brand because they are a travel and hospitality leader in digital and social executions. I believe BWI has found much success in leveraging multi-platform marketing efforts to promote travel during summer months.
Their most recent summer promotion with Disney Media was anchored in the property Teen Beach 2. Looking to target moms and get their families excited about summer vacation, BWI offered a promotion for 1 lucky winner to have the opportunity to meet Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell at their very own dance party on the beach. BWI knows the keys to success when it comes to integrated marketing and spread the word about this promotion across linear, digital, radio, social and in the lobbies of their hotels across the United States and Canada!
Let’s take a look at some of the marketing they did this summer!
Custom television spots promoting the sweepstakes and chance to meet Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell.

Organic Fandom re-sharing of sponsored content and Teen Beach 2 content
In the lobbies of all Best Western’s in the US and Canada, you could find branded standees and tent cards. These in-hotel marketing pieces triggered an augmented reality experience allowing you to take a selfie with Ross Lynch and/or Maia Mitchell. The app also had custom content and a quiz featuring who would your travel BFF be from Teen Beach 2!
