The 2021 Adrians Has Four Focus Categories:

  • Recovery Marketing – Brand positioning/motivational messaging that made the travelling public know that the hotels and destination were open for business and ready to safely welcome guests for business and leisure.
  • Recovery Campaign Evolution – Campaigns entered in the 2020 competition will be eligible again if the new entry shows how the campaign evolved as the industry moved into recovery and conditions changed.
  • Technology Innovation – In cooperation with HFTP, this category will honor innovations in sales, marketing & guest satisfaction, and revenue optimization technology and platforms that are powering the recovery.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility – Being a good member of your community has never been more important. This category will honor how brands, properties and destinations supported people and communities impacted by the pandemic into their recovery efforts.

Top entries in each of the four categories will receive Platinum Adrian Awards and will have case studies written to be included in a Special Report.
