Sheraton Hotels Pitch Brief

  1. 1. NEW BUSINESS PITCH BRIEF
  2. 2. Starwood Hotels & Resorts has put out two requests for proposals seeking creative agencies to support its Sheraton and Westin brands in the U.S., according to people familiar with the matter. According to a document obtained by Ad Age, Starwood is reaching out to a select handful of agencies to participate in the pitches, which are expected to conclude in March. It is understood that the review is being led by Avidan Strategies. "We are always looking for new ways to shine the spotlight on our distinct brands, but Starwood does not comment on any RFP processes," said Trey Sarten, VP-global brand communications, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, in an emailed statement. It was not immediately clear if Sheraton and Westin currently have creative agencies of record for their businesses. Last September, Sheraton hired Publicis Groupe's Marcel New York to work on its $100 million marketing campaign, "Where Actions Speak Louder." A month later, Westin worked with BBH New York on its "You Need Better Vacation Days" effort. Marriott International is in the process of buying Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. for $12.2 billion to create the world's largest hotel company. OVERVIEW 01 OVERVIEW

Sheraton 2020 is a 10 point plan designed to revitalize the brand’s global marketing over the next five years, including a goal to open more than 150 new Sheraton hotels worldwide. “Sheraton is Starwood’s largest, and most global brand, with a nearly 80-year history as a pioneer and true beacon of hospitality around the world,” said the former interim CEO, “With Sheraton 2020, we are marshalling the formidable might, muscle and creativity of our organization, which has famously distinguished itself as the industry’s premier brand builder and innovator. This is a top priority, and we will act boldly to put Sheraton back on its rightful pedestal as a global hotel brand of choice, everywhere.” SUMMARY 03 SUMMARY

  9. 9. WESTIN HOTELS & RESORTS BRAND Westin Hotels & Resorts is an upscale hotel chain owned by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. As of 2013, Westin operated over 192 hotels. Luxury and upper upscale full-service hotels, resorts and residences, Westin provides innovative programs and instinctive services designed with guests’ well-being in mind. Recently, Westin launched an integrated advertising campaign that reinforces the way Westin delivers better vacation days through wellness, allowing guests to get the most out of the little time they have to take off from work. The “You Need Better Vacation Days” campaign highlights the portfolio of resorts and underscores the commitment to guests’ well being when traveling for leisure. To launch this campaign, the company dreamed up a little something called the “Out of Office Generator.” They partnered with McSweeney’s (who produce a daily humor website) to develop a digital tool that will make custom, tongue-in-cheek automatic responses not only for outbox but also for social media channels. SUMMARY 08 SUMMARY
  10. 10. With an investment of more than $4 million in print and digital advertising over the next 12 months starting October ‘15, the new campaign captures ski and sun resort destinations and the moments that reconnect guests when they stay at Westin Hotels & Resorts; for instance, paddle boarding near The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Ka'anapali, skiing slope side at The Westin Snowmass Resort or hiking over beach dunes adjacent to The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa. These print vignettes will also come to life as 15 second videos on Westin’s social media platforms as well as on Delta flights throughout the country. The campaign has been launched in October issues of national publications, including bon appetit, Condé Nast Traveler, Departures and United Airlines’ Hemispheres Magazine and will continue next year in magazines, such as Travel + Leisure, Golf Digest and SKI,among others. The brand’s digital ad buy will include Flipboard, TripAdvisor and Fodors.com.
