Karisma Announces Agent Sweepstakes


Not only is Karisma Hotels & Resorts reassuring agents and clients that the Riviera Maya is safe to visit, it is also offering them the opportunity to see for themselves.

It hasn’t been officially announced yet, but Travel Agent got the scoop on Karisma Hotels & Resorts new sweepstakes for agents.

El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels and Azul Hotels, by Karisma, announced the In-Store Sweepstakes Campaign for Gourmet Inclusive (GI) Vacation Consultants, providing agents with customized Sweepstakes Kits designed to showcase romance and family-friendly trip giveaways at local retail locations, as well as reach potential clients for agents and customers for store owners.

The In-Store Sweepstakes Campaign offers GI Vacation Consultants scrims to be placed in the storefront windows to generate awareness for the giveaways; up to five sweepstakes entry boxes for either El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels or Azul Hotels (which will arrive 30-45 days after ordering due to printing time of customized entry forms and shipping time); entry forms with detachable business cards including each GI Vacation Consultant's own information; and  six pre-addressed and stamped envelopes per box, to send back entries and customized e-mail blasts sent to all entrants advertising new promotions.

After receiving the Sweepstakes Kits, GI Vacation Consultants are encouraged to place scrims and tabletop collections boxes in retail and public establishments throughout their communities. Not only will customers have the chance to win either a four-day/three-night romantic escape to El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels or a four-day/three-night family-friendly trip to Azul Hotels, wherever the winners are selected, store owners will also win a trip of their choice.

Drawings will be held on the first Monday of every month for a couples-only El Dorado getaway and a family-friendly Azul Hotels vacation. After collecting entries and replenishing sweepstakes forms on the 15th of the month, GI Vacation Consultants should enclose forms in the appropriate, self-addressed envelopes (provided in the kit) featuring the resort logo and picture of the entry box that corresponds with either the El Dorado or Azul Hotels giveaway.

In conjunction with Brand Tango (agents must have a profile setup beforehand), leads are saved in each GI Vacation Consultant’s Brand Tango profile and immediately marketed to with customized promotions on their behalf. GI Vacation Consultants can order collection boxes online by visiting www.karismahotels.com/forms/en/karisma/SweepsBoxes.html.
