NEW YORK, June 7, 2018 – TravelClick, a leading global provider of data and revenue-generating solutions for hoteliers, and Millennium Hotels & Resorts, a dynamic global hotel company that owns, asset manages and operates over 130 hotels worldwide, have been awarded “Best Hotel and Lodging Integrated Ad Campaign” by the Web Marketing Association’s Interactive Advertising Competition (IAC) in its Hotel and Lodging Division this year.
“In today’s increasingly competitive hospitality landscape, we are always seeking out the most effective tools to win customers and drive our revenue, and this IAC win validates our strategy,” said Nayan Peshkar, Senior Vice President, Digital, Distribution and Revenue Management, Millennium. “Since 2013, we have partnered closely with TravelClick on market-leading digital media programs, and in this past year alone, we have seen a significant growth in performance marketing results. Moreover, our integrated, multi-channel online campaigns have enabled us to reach new customers very early in the travel research and consideration phases, which has led to increased online revenues.”
As an international company with hotels and brands in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America, Millennium needs partners that work seamlessly on a global basis. Millennium recently consolidated its multiple regional websites into a single, unified domain to provide an integrated experience for all of its guests, and TravelClick has partnered with Millennium throughout this process.
