Gravity Media will be responsible for coordinating all marketing and advertising initiatives including media strategy, planning, buying and public relations. In addition to Gravity’s principal mission of positioning Harrah’s as the leading destination for the Hispanic customer, their marketing and communications efforts will also be on raising awareness of the $150 million renovation project taking place at the property, which includes a 403-room hotel tower, expansion of the pool venue, new lobby lounge, convention and entertainment center, a new indoor/outdoor Mexican restaurant as well as additional parking. The comprehensive strategic campaign will place a heavy focus on engaging the Hispanic markets on the West Coast, namely, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Tijuana. “Gravity Media’s innovative and creative tactics, coupled with their cultural expertise, made them a perfect fit for Harrah’s Rincon,” said Darrell Pilant, Vice President of Marketing and Operations. “We are excited to employ the agency’s diverse methods toward making our property more well-known to the Hispanic community.”
