Marriott Debuts Omnichannel Media Network Powered by Yahoo
Marriott International has launched the Marriott Media Network, an omnichannel cross-platform advertising solution for brand advertisers, enabling curated content experiences and offerings to guests throughout their travel journey.
To power its network of owned channels, Marriott is exclusively collaborating with Yahoo, an industry-leading unified stack advertising platform.
The Marriott Media Network initially will offer brand advertisers exposure to travelers in the U.S. and Canada, ultimately expanding to travellers globally including all the more than 164 million members in Marriott Bonvoy, the company’s award-winning travel program.
The network is expected to feature premium inventory spanning its owned channels including display, mobile, video, email and digital out-of-home (in-room television and digital screens) when fully deployed.
For brand advertisers, the Marriott Media Network will offer an unprecedented combination of scale and personalized media to an audience of in-demand, high-intent travelers.
For travellers and guests, tailored brand experiences will drive smarter purchase decisions and a more fulfilling travel experience.
The Marriott Media Network will provide travelers with relevant products and services during their travel journey, including throughout their path of purchase, pre-arrival and during their stay. Marriott’s audience has intent, and travelers will be in the right mindset when receiving these offerings.
Marriott’s media partnership with Yahoo spans supply and demand with Yahoo SSP serving as the exclusive access point for activating the Marriott Media Network supply.
In addition, the global Yahoo ad sales team will lead demand generation and sales across Marriott’s paid media and the Marriott Media Network, leveraging Yahoo’s expanded Demand Side Platform.
The exclusive offering is one of Yahoo’s strategic full-stack collaborations, highlighting Yahoo’s unique ability to support advertisers and publishers in unlocking the full value of their content, audiences, and marketing.
Yahoo offers both buy- and sell-side capabilities as well as an exchange – all tightly integrated to work better together.
The Marriott Media Network will help open innovative opportunities to connect and personalize ad experiences across paid and owned media channels.
