The MLK Holiday Campaign was developed to educate consumers that 1) Park City offers great deals for the holiday weekend and 2) the Sundance Film Festival dates shifted, so Park City is completely available for skiing. The campaign primarily utilized digital media to convey the message: A 3-day weekend is great. A 3-day weekend in Park City is extraordinary.

The marketing significantly increased visitation for the holiday weekend and the estimated ROI for the campaign was a staggering 150.29%.


Among all the other entries, Park City’s MLK Holiday Campaign was honored based on its innovation, measurable contributions to the Utah Tourism Industry and utilization of creative elements. RIESTER is thrilled at the recognition of the campaign and is honored to do successful work on behalf of an incredible client.
