Element Advertising has been selected by Charlotte’s premier boutique hotel, The Dunhill Hotel, as marketing agency of record. The two-year relationship will include a comprehensive brand planning process that will drive strategy for all marketing efforts on behalf of the hotel and The Asbury, the fine-dining restaurant located in the lobby.
“The team at Element has great marketing experience in the hospitality industry,” said John Beatty, General Manager of The Dunhill. “We put Element’s capabilities next to marketing firms in Atlanta and in our own backyard. They came out ahead. We look forward to this partnership.”
The brand planning process is expected to produce a number of strategic documents. The Brand DNA manual will define graphic standards, communication architecture and brand voice. In concert, the strategic marketing plan will identify target markets, set strategic goals tied to the business plan and identify timing for implementation. Element will provide a media planning and buying strategy that reaches across digital and traditional media through both print ads and SEM/digital banner ads. Finally, a Google AdWords campaign will grow The Dunhill’s online presence.
“Element is celebrating its second anniversary this month,” said Jack Becker, principal brand strategist and creative director. “I can’t think of a better way to mark that milestone than welcoming a client as prestigious as The Dunhill, in a market as important as Charlotte.”
