MAST Travel Network has launched its Tourism Strong campaign as a means to make resources available to travel advisors during the COVID-19 crises. This campaign, divided into two phases, includes social media and email marketing content that displays the value of using a travel advisor and inspires travel. 

Phase one of the campaign honed in on why eager travelers should use a travel advisor to plan their next vacation. Phase two focuses on what consumers feel when they have travel on their minds. The campaign provides social media posts, web banners, Facebook cover photos, letters to consumers, and an email marketing campaign. 

The At-Home-Guide was sent to the customers of MAST agencies. This guide focused on what travelers could do at home to stay in the travel state-of-mind. The five articles included at home workouts, travel inspired cocktail recipes, movies set in travel destinations, recipes from cuisines around the world, and books to inspire the next vacation destination.
