The SoHos come on the heels of the agency’s winning a Travel + Leisure 2012 Social Media in Travel & Tourism (SMITTY) award for the same campaign in the "Best Single Social Media Promotion: Individual Hotel/Resort, Global" category. During the awards, Travel + Leisure editor Rich Beattie stated, “Innovative efforts like yours are raising the social media bar for everyone in the travel industry.”
The firm developed a "personalized luxury" marketing concept around a series of mini indulgences. The campaign was launched with a tweetup at the resort for social influencers to generate more coverage and highlight the hotel's different indulgences. Other luxury brands were secured as partners including Virgin America, retailer Luxury Avenue and Hartmann Luggage. Total reach of the campaign was 14 million + impressions, corresponding to 1.4 million+ unique impressions, a record-breaking number for the #TNI Tweetup.
