Leading online travel company Orbitz Worldwide and Energizer, a global leader in providing portable power, today announced the launch of an integrated media campaign designed to reinforce brand alignment between Energizer’s suite of Portable Power products and the act of booking travel at Orbitz.com. Research indicates that online travelers own an average of 2.7 web-enabled devices, with nearly four out of five using a mobile phone to view maps or get directions on trips and 69 percent logging on to a preferred social network at least daily1. Energizer’s Portable Power products provide instant, endless power to crucial electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets, empowering Orbitz leisure and business travelers to stay connected while exploring a world without boundaries.
The innovative marketing partnership runs through December 31 at Orbitz.com/Energizer and spans a variety of platforms, including “Orbitz Originals: The Cayman Islands,” a series of ten short films hosted by travel expert Richard Bangs available exclusively on Orbitz.com alongside a rich library of adventure travel content; fixed and dynamic media placements targeted to business, luxury, family and leisure travel audiences; and an Energizer-sponsored travel promotion offering up to 40 percent off Cayman Islands hotels booked through Orbitz.
“Orbitz provides outstanding reach to a broad range of companies looking to match their products with consumers passionate about travel,” said Josh Winkler, vice president of partner marketing at Orbitz Worldwide. “Portable Power products are tailor made for on-the-go travelers who want to stay connected through limitless use of their devices, so this partnership with Energizer is a perfect example of the synergies we offer companies with travel-related products. We are excited to kick off this integrated media campaign and look forward to connecting travelers with the tools that will keep them connected throughout every journey.”
Portable Power chargers are featured throughout all ten episodes of “Orbitz Originals: The Cayman Islands,” an Orbitz.com exclusive series hosted by travel expert Richard Bangs and produced in cooperation with the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism. Each episode weaves compelling imagery of beautiful island destinations with subtle examples of ways in which Energizer products enhance the travel experience – by keeping travelers connected to friends, family, even the office – at all times.
In addition to “Orbitz Originals: The Cayman Islands,” the integrated media campaign includes an Energizer-sponsored travel sale at Orbitz.com/Energizer, with discounts up to 40 percent off Cayman Islands hotels for travelers eager to replicate the experiences seen throughout the Orbitz Originals series, as well as dynamic media placements including Orbitz.com homepage takeovers, targeted email messages to Orbitz Insiders and strategic use of all Orbitz social media channels.
