In a bid to woo North American guests, France-based Accor Hotels has launched an online game called Around the World Photo Hunt.
Accor is offering a free 12-day European vacation for two to the winner with the highest score - includes roundtrip airfare, first-class train tickets and stays at luxury Accor hotels in Paris, Berlin and Barcelona.
In addition, there’s a bucketload of prizes for the top 10 players including a SoBed package, digital cameras, flat screen TVs, DVD home theaters and more. Also, one randomly selected player will get a $50 Mastercard gift card every day until July 23rd.
How’s it work? You’re given two identical photos of an Accor hotel from anywhere in the world. The two photos have 4 differences, which you need to spot before the timer runs out.
Each time you spot a difference you win points. If you spot all four, you can move to the next round. The grand winner will be the one who notches up the most points.
The game started on June 24, and runs until July 23. So if you plan to be among the top 10 scorers, you need to start ASAP. Prizes aside, it’s a whole lot of fun, even if you just plan to play a couple of rounds. Also an excellent way for Accor to introduce their hotels to an American audience.
Gianna Rivera, Deputy Vice President, International Sales Division- North America, Accor Hospitality, says “The idea is to create a fun and engaging online game where travel shoppers can interact with our diverse collection of worldwide hotels… We believe this is an excellent way to raise visibility of Accor hotels while rewarding potential customers for taking the time to learn more about us.”
