Co-Winner: R&R Partners Public Relations - Vegas Season

Las Vegas took the ultimate cross-country road trip to bring Vegas summertime bliss to New York, Chicago, Toronto and Los Angeles. The second year of the Vegas Season campaign surprised and delighted crowds in each city with alchohol-infused ice cream treats and tasty bites served from the larger-than-life gold-plated Ice Dream Truck.

R&R Public Relations created a compelling, engaging activation that provided consumers with tangible evidence of why Las Vegas is the best place to visit in the summer. As a result of the partners’ efforts, Las Vegas’ July visitor volume increased by more than 5 percent, totaling more than 3.7 million visitors compared to the previous year. Media coverage included outlets like "Good Morning America," New York Daily News and Chicago Tribune, among others.
