THE RESULTS 2019


For over 10 years, The Travel Marketing Awards has recognised and acknowledged outstanding marketing in the UK travel and tourism industry, during which time we have experienced profound change. From the rise of digital marketing, audio and visual search, to the increasing use of artificial intelligence, chatbots and the implementation of GDPR, the marketing profession has had to respond to a multitude of new and potentially far-reaching developments over recent years. As a result, marketing is now taking many different forms and often operates with a wholly new vocabulary. Judges commented that the entries this year were of a very high quality and showed fantastic energy, creativity and flair, so bravo to you all. Within this year’s winning entries, there were 15 prestigious Gold Standards, nine Silvers and one Bronze.

We have seen mass disruption within our industry. With increased legislation for major booking sites, illegal drone activity affecting thousands of holidaymakers, and Instagram becoming the new shop front for international travel, marketing has truly been thrust into the limelight. Within the marketing profession, it is now more important than ever before to maintain and restore trust and transparency amongst customers looking to travel. Professional marketing is a vital driver of business advantage across the travel sector –

On behalf on the CIM Travel Group, I would like to thank every single one of you who entered. Whether a winner or not, all entrants should be commended for their incredible work over the course of 2018. Marketing professionals enjoyed a wonderful evening together as we celebrated the fantastic achievements made within our industry. Here’s looking forward to next year! Richard Carrick President CIM Travel Group

boosting commercial outcomes and growing talent. The role of the professional marketer is becoming more demanding, competitive and varied as it expands to encompass data analysis, commercial awareness, business development and customer experience. One thing is for certain, and that is that marketing has definitely stepped up to this challenge. The competition for this year’s Travel Marketing awards was so strong, to win an award meant showcasing talent, innovation, bravery and an ability to make a genuine difference and deliver tangible results. I would like to offer my congratulations to all who made it to the finals; they reflect the very best in global marketing talent. Chris Daly Chief Executive CIM

MATTHEW HAMILTON-DALE CRAFTED

RICARDO GATO COOKSON ADVENTURES

While serving eight years in the army, Matthew spent any free time he had developing his digital skills.

As Cookson Adventures’ Marketing Director, Ricardo is responsible for all aspects of the brand, communication, partnerships and business development team.

A job as a Junior Developer at Spicerhaart gave Matthew grounding in email marketing strategy before he moved to ROL Cruise in 2015 as Digital Marketing Manager, where he was soon moulding digital channels for the travel industry. In 2017, Matthew joined Crafted as a Senior Advertising Strategist. Crafted’s partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts saw Matthew work on the European market, managing paid search, social, display, and video. Successes include Matthew delivering an average ROI of 15.4 against a target of 7.1. After these impressive results, Matthew set up the strategic planning of Preferred’s global account, combining dynamic display, Google Ads, Facebook and YouTube via the Google Marketing Platform and third-party publishers. He advises Preferred’s global marketing team on longer term paid strategy, offering customer insights and data on international markets that are performing particularly well. Matthew also plans the strategy of all paid search activity for Harbour Hotels, St Michaels Hotel, and Assembly Hotels. Victoria Gray, Director, Marketing Europe, Preferred Hotels and Resorts, said: “Matt has been a true pleasure to work with – he is strategic in his thinking, pro-active in his method and has a real hands-on approach to managing our account. He is always there to provide support, advice and recommendations and isn’t afraid of testing new ways of thinking. He challenges the norm and works endlessly to get our campaigns in market to deliver impactful results. We have seen our digital results increase YOY thanks to Matt and the team at Crafted and I couldn’t be more thrilled to recommend him for any award.”

Ricardo has been the driving force behind Cookson Adventures’ transition from a founder-led business to a professionalised and highly investible market-leading enterprise. In the space of nine months, he has re-branded and re-positioned the business, relaunched the website and recruited a PR agency the first in Cookson Adventures’ history. He has also engaged in their first digital campaigns, building the first steps of SEO, PPC and e-mail campaigns. Ricardo’s successes include single-handedly managing a GDPR campaign, significantly building engagement with valuable customers, and improving sales techniques and processes. Adam Sebba, Cookson Adventures, CEO said: “He has taken us from a business with zero leads to one with $9m of hot pipeline in 2019. He managed the build of a new website that has been the converter for 95% of our traffic, and transformed our CRM almost from a pen and paper list to a best practice digitised database. Also, he has, completely in house, using our own photography, and writing the copy himself, created an Ad campaign in How to Spend It, that has delivered a significant number of new clients. On top of this, he has proved an outstanding manager, leading a team from poor morale and low focus, to a group of high performing and highly satisfied professionals. He is a great team member, an incredibly valued contributor and is respected by his peers – frequently being nominated for the internal ‘employee of the month’ Above and Beyond award. He is above all, a decent, fun, likeable man with a stellar career ahead of him.”

TOMORROW’S TRAVEL MARKETING LEADER

JEMMA MAGRATH GRAYLING

LAURA STONE PRINCESS CRUISES

After achieving a first-class honours degree, Jemma joined McGrath as a Junior Account Executive in 2017, before progressing to Account Executive and Senior Account Executive in 2018. She was recently voted the Grayling Consumer team’s ‘Star of the Year’ for 2018 by her colleagues.

With a business and marketing degree, a CIM diploma, and over eight years’ experience in marketing roles, Laura now works at Princess Cruises (Carnival UK) as a Senior Marketing Manager.

Jemma has worked on projects such as Hilton’s The World is Right Here campaign, heavily involved in the media strategy ahead of the campaign launch as well as being a key member of the sell-in team, helping to generate coverage across national and consumer lifestyle media. She managed the relationship with the UK influencer, Jack Morris, dealing with initial fee and scope negotiations, working on creative briefs, planning the trip itinerary and working through video edits. She also managed the two other markets working with hero influencers, Germany and UAE. Kate Dwyer, Associate Director, Grayling, said: “Jemma is an incredible asset to the Grayling Consumer team and was very quickly identified as a rising star, despite joining straight from university with no prior experience. Adept at juggling multiple client demands, with solid attention to detail, a brilliant attitude and a very proactive approach, she is everything you could want in an Account Executive and has risen through the junior ranks at speed. Jemma is a completely trusted pair of hands with an excellent understanding of client needs and business objectives, which belies her experience and level. From solid media relations (and racking up the most media meets in the team this year), to solid influence marketing know-how, she is keen to learn. She continues to show increasing industry knowledge, accountability and management skills which will ensure she continues to skyrocket in her PR career.”

Laura supports Princess Cruises’ commercial priorities and campaigns across numerous digital marketing channels, delivering the ambitious passenger plan and increasing bookings via princess.com, which experienced a significant 27% growth YoY. A key driver of this success is her creativity and desire to innovate by trialling new formats, channels and creative ideas. Her career highlights include working with the agency VideoSmart to create personalised emailable videos for re-permissioning Princess Cruises’ database. This campaign, which received 45K views, helped to retain around 25% of the existing user base. Laura also led the appointment of an influencer events agency called Traverse who helped to plan and host two very successful campaigns this year, one onboard a Baltic cruise and the other in the Mediterranean. Suzanne Korff, Director of Marketing Communications, Princess Cruises, said: “Laura is creative and tenacious – and these qualities have enabled her to lead a number of challenging projects such as the automation and personalisation of our basket abandon programme, as well as bringing together innovation and compliance to create a successful personalised video campaign. The success of the digital team can also be attributed to her agility and perpetual thirst for knowledge, which ensures Princess Cruises is able to stay ahead of its competitive set. Laura has really gone from strength to strength this year, growing in confidence and demonstrating all the qualities that tomorrow’s marketing travel leader requires.”

Le Boat: Driving awareness through muLti-screening

The challenge Established over 40 years ago, Le Boat is Europe’s leading boating holiday company, offering an incredible fleet of canal boats and a stunning range of destinations. as part of a partnerships programme, their products were due to be featured on two popular canal and barging shows: channel 4’s ‘great canal Journeys’ in november 2017 and channel 5’s ‘celebrity 5 go Barging’ in February 2018. to capitalise on the extra publicity, they tasked us with delivering a multichannel campaign that would elevate brand awareness, drive online traffic and - of course - generate enquiries.

02 Le Boat: Driving awareness through muLti-screening

The countdown begins to build early interest in both shows, we created and delivered a series of engaging Facebook ads. these news Feed and carousel formats provided teasers of what would happen in each episode to drum up excitement around Le Boat’s placement, encouraging them to tune in to see more.
