Goals: Clearly state your marketing goals. What did you strive to achieve using this piece or program?
Award-winning Maine resort, Hidden Pond, partnered with American Menswear Designer Todd Snyder to re-launch its 20 one-bedroom bungalows in 2022, providing travelers with a luxurious upgraded suite option filled with exclusive merchandise. The Snyder team returned in August 2023 to recreate the Snyder’s Cabana Club experience. Originally debuted in New York City to celebrate the brand's summer collection launch, Snyder’s Cabana Club was a pre-summer cocktail party featuring a Menswear destination with Todd’s new seasonal collection. Launching the experience in Maine with a New England twist, Snyder recreated the Cabana Club experience in Hidden Pond’s rustic-chic Event Barn, complete with a rotating activity calendar for kids and adults during one the wettest seasons in Maine’s history. The marketing goals are as follows: (1) Create media interest, social awareness and entice travelers to book a stay at Hidden Pond; (2) Enrich guest experiences by relaunching the bungalows to create a one-of-a-kind stay in distinctly designed suites, as well as launching an immersive shopping experience, while attracting new key markets to the hotel and sustaining the property’s regulars; (3) To echo Hidden Pond’s ethos of rustic charm by partnering with Todd Snyder - known for his cutting edge design - and play off his expertise in fashion to provide exclusive shopping experiences within the suite and Cabana Club.
