From Airline Roulette Stunts to Countrywide Tourism Listings

 - Jun 24, 2017
From airline roulette stunts to countrywide tourism listings, the June 2017 travel trends reveal a shift in the way airlines and hospitality groups are marketing to travelers. Instead of traditional commercials that promote the fun and excitement of travel, these brands are resorting to more creative efforts to capture the attention of consumers.

West Jet is no stranger to creative marketing and this year's campaign was no exception. Celebrating the fact that it had been transporting Canadians to and from Las Vegas for 21 years, the airline set up an enormous prize wheel visible from its planes. The prize wheel then revealed the seat number of a winning passenger, who received an extravagant Las Vegas vacation.

Taking a different approach than West Jet, Sweden's tourism board teamed teamed up with Airbnb to list the entire country on the home-sharing platform. This stunt helped to highlight some of the country's beautiful outdoor destinations to those who may be unfamiliar.

Indeed, the June 2017 travel trends reveals that travel marketing is quickly evolving as more consumers have the opportunity to take a vacation.
