Marriott International is holding its first-ever Global Travel Day block party, at iconic Rockefeller Center in New York City today, Friday, October 14th. Marriott will showcase its 5,700 properties across 30 brands, located in more than 110 countries, through an interactive 4,140 square-foot map. The walkable map will feature 30 larger-than-life push pins fitted with RFID chips that members of Marriott Rewards, SPG or The Ritz-Carlton Rewards loyalty programs can swipe with a provided key-card, for a chance to win exciting travel prizes.
In addition to the map experience, Marriott will place 250 larger-than-life push pins in front of all Marriott properties in New York City, signifying the vast array of brands and properties available to travelers now that Starwood has merged with Marriott International.
Loyalty members in the U.S. will also have a chance to win one of 30 travel packages through a unique social media “emojistakes.” For the week beginning on October 14, loyalty members will be able to enter by sharing their dream destination with @MarriottRewards and @SPG on Twitter or Instagram, along with the push pin emoji and #YouAreHere #Sweepstakes.
