TV, Digital Opps: Best Western launches brand refresh to reach millennials
Subject: traditional, broadcast, digital, mobile
Company: Best Western International, which now has seven brands in its portfolio: Best Western; Best Western Plus; BestWestern Plus Executive Residency; Best Western Premier; Vib; BW Premier Collection; and the newly-launched Glo.
Opportunity: Best Western International is rebranding itself as Best Western Hotels & Resorts. The brand refresh includes a new brand master brand logo and the launch of a new hotel in its portfolio, GLo. Best Western’s SVP of marketing and sales Dorothy Dowling said: “It is really asserting our position within the market and claiming the space in a really visible, transparent way to our customers.” In an effort to reach more millennial travelers, Best Western will break ground on the new boutique hotel Glo in mid-2016. This concept is essentially a “budget-conscious suburban lifestyle hotel.”
This new concept comes on the heels of two other launches: Best Western Premier Collection (May 2014) and Vib (October 2014), a lifestyle brand aimed at urban millennials. Look for Best Western to employ brand building campaigns that are about “curating the message of relevancy.” Dowling points out that even though the message may be shaped to millennials, it translates across all ages. Note that display, TV and mobile have all increased in 2015 (even if only slightly).
According to The List, IPG’s Initiative handles media buying and planning for Best Western.
