Courtyard by Marriott/TownePlace Suites by Marriott

Goal

Continued visibility and brand recognition

Solution

Striving to remain a key player in the saturated hospitality marketplace Courtyard by Marriott provides their sales representatives with promotional items to use as leave-behinds when they visit with clients and prospects. Identifying items that were well suited for an office (and hence keeping the Courtyard name visible on the client’s and prospect’s desks), Courtyard by Marriott opted for several cost-effective items that would have a big impact. Mouse pads and sticky note pads remain popular choices for many companies and a coffee mug and tote bag are always perfect and especially for a company involved in the hospitality space. The beautiful engraved Herman Miller clock was used for holiday gifts.

-Full Color Graphic Mouse Pad
-Full Color Sticky Note Pad
-10 Oz. Ceramic Mug w/ Spoon
