With 30 brands and more than 8,000 properties in their portfolio, Marriott encompasses every style of travel, from luxury to extended stays. The Marriott International team partnered with the digital marketing experts at the Publicis entity, M1M, who developed an audience-centric global marketing approach for this campaign. Both turned to Sojern to help them bridge walled gardens and reach the growing leisure travel audience.

Marriott International and M1M partnered with Sojern to run a multichannel campaign in the EMEA region, combining upper and lower funnel tactics. By exposing travel audiences as soon as they showed intent through to conversion, more bookings and searches for Marriott were seen per traveler. Additionally, multichannel exposure led to shorter booking windows, and earlier engagement promoted deeper relationships - on average, from last impression to conversion - travelers remembered Marriott 20 days later when they went to book their trip.

  1. 40% better conversion rate among users exposed to both the upper and lower funnel campaigns
  2. 6% higher booking activity and 21% higher search activity on by serving display, video, and native ads in combination
  3. Users booked 5 days earlier when exposed to both campaigns compared to the brand awareness campaign only
