SPRING UPDATE FROM LOTUS
The first quarter of 2022 has been brimming with activity here at LOTUS and it’s fantastic to be out and about again doing what we love.
As travel becomes easier, we’ve been supporting our destination clients with their reopening strategies. In the last few months, we’ve hosted a range of campaigns and events showcasing our travel and F&B clients. From new flight launches to rebrands, chef collaborations, sustainability initiatives and viral campaigns, it’s been encouraging to pick up the pace and see travel bounce back.
We’re delighted to share some of our highlights with you….
Double Award Win for LOTUS!
We’re thrilled to have new additions to our awards shelf.
Last week we won ‘Best PR Campaign’ at the TravMedia awards in collaboration with our client, battleface, for our work raising the profile of the travel insurer during the pandemic period. This was a data-led campaign entitled the ‘battleface barometer’ which resulted in more than 400 pieces of coverage with over 270 spokesperson opportunities and 12 pieces of broadcast coverage.
We were also delighted to see one of our Senior Account Executives, Matilda Haymes, pick up the award for ‘Best Rising Star’ for her incredible contribution to destination press office, social media and influencer engagement.
LOTUS was also shortlisted in another four categories, including PR Agency of the Year.
