      Luxury Vacation Rentals

      As countries around the world continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are seeking alternative ways to travel where they can stay-at-home in style. Luxury vacation home rentals have become one of the best ways for people to safely escape to a relaxing, new environment. There are limitless possibilities for travellers who work from home remotely, where a home office can be located anywhere in the world. Luxury vacation home rentals are one of the hottest travel trends to get you out of the house and into an extravagant retreat.

Luxury rental properties in Palm Springs are known for their quintessential, mid-century modern flair.

              A New Age in Advertising with Experiential Marketing

              experiential marketing

              Photo: Zocha Group – A New Age in Advertising with Experiential Marketing

               

              Experiential Marketing

              In an era where ads are considered more of a nuisance than informative, companies are exploring more creative avenues to reach their consumers in effective ways. One approach that has gained traction in recent years is experiential marketing—events where consumers have hands-on and in-person experiences with brands. These experiential marketing events allow direct engagement that inspires an emotional connection to users.




              It has become a recognized trend that millennials tend to spend more of their income on experiences in comparison to the product-oriented generations that came before them. With their eyes constantly seeking new activities, they invest their free time in taking trips, going to events, and socializing in public places. This modern pool of highly active individuals sets up a foundation for experiential marketing to be extremely effective for brands. The continuously growing social media landscape has also become a large aspect of why experiential marketing is so useful. The unique and artistic spaces created for events are often prime photo-ops for attendees. Interactive activities can inspire hundreds of pictures which users voluntarily post to their social media channels. Experiential marketing events often will include a custom hashtag promoted in marketing materials and signage that allow attendees’ photos to be grouped online to make them easily viewed by others.




              Experiential marketing campaigns can also provide a way for brands to learn more about their consumers. Analyzing consumer data and KPIs are a significant part of marketing and with experiential events, consumers are often willing to provide relevant information about themselves in exchange for the opportunity to experience a fun event. These events act as a modern re-imagination of the classic focus group style of market research that proves to be more effective as it generates both in-person and online engagement while making a positive impact on the participant.




              Ultimately the most beneficial part of experiential marketing is the personal connection consumers are able to make with a company and more specifically, their brand. These events help illustrate the brand’s narrative and integrate consumers into the story. Their in-person memories of experiencing the event are far more impactful than a billboard they pass on the street or an ad before an online video. These opportunities for direct engagement create a relationship where after attending an experiential event, the consumer is more likely to develop brand loyalty than through traditional means of advertising. This two-way relationship where both brand and consumer are learning about each other is an invaluable method that has plenty of space to flourish within the marketing industry.

                For lovers of all things artistic, travelling can be the perfect way to spark your inspiration as you indulge in the life of another culture. While more popular vacation destinations can be fun, sometimes taking the road less traveled will lead you to enlightening adventures in artistic expression. Take a unique trip to an art-centric locale to gain some inspiration on your next getaway at these artsy vacation spots.




                Sedona, Arizona

                While many tourists head to the Grand Canyon, only those in the know will travel south to stop by Sedona for a retreat into a rich history of indigenous American artistry paired with a breathtaking landscape of natural red sandstone rock formations.




                Berlin, Germany

                This city’s mix of old world masterpieces and contemporary creations makes it the perfect place to take in the urban landscape of street art, murals, museums, and a signature alternative music scene.




                Jackson Hole, Wyoming

                A rugged city perfect for a winter escape, Jackson Hole is worth visiting for its ski resorts, art and performance venues, and a National Museum of Wildlife Art home to pieces by Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keeffe.




                Havana, Cuba

                Havana’s rich culture has been left untouched for decades and is now a hot spot for those looking to learn about Cuba’s colorful history through museums, architecture, and murals found throughout the city.

                Portland, Oregon

                A hub for all things ‘weird,’ Portland boasts an eccentric identity tied to its population of creatives that have cultivated a lively art, music, and theater scene in addition to a growing craft beer and coffee industry.

                Tulum, Mexico

                The bohemian vibe of Tulum draws in visitors who aim to experience the serene landscapes and chic social scene. The hippie-inspired boutiques, creative restaurants and nearby ancient Mayan ruins will have you living in paradise in this cultural getaway.
