The new KimptonHotels.com website and Life is Suite blog have racked up their share of recognition and awards since launch. Most recently, both won Gold in The HSMAI Adrian Awards, the hospitality industry’s highest honor.
The Adrian Awards honor "creative brilliance and best practices in hospitality, travel, and tourism-related marketing". For 58 years, the competition awards the best of the best, renowned for the prestigious nature of its crownings in advertising, public relations, and digital marketing.
More than a "beauty" competition, the Adrians judge based on a full and detailed case study of campaign strategy and results, in addition to creative tactics and execution.
