— Following a multi-agency pitch, Banyan Tree has appointed VML Qais to lead and manage global SEO & Social Marketing Strategy in 2013 as it expands globally.
“Social, search, and content marketing are integrating and changing the game for marketing. With this, destinations have to rethink their relationships with consumers,” said Luca Deplano, Vice President Marketing for Banyan Tree. “We picked VML Qais because they understand the relationship between these and have the ability to create a holistic digital strategy that will help us realize our vision.”
“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with Banyan Tree. After building their websites, to be entrusted with the marketing of their destinations is an honour,” said Tripti Lochan, CEO VML Qais.
