Panama City Beach, Fla., Birmingham, Ala. – Visit Panama City Beach has named Luckie & Company their agency of record (AOR) after a months-long search for an advertising agency. Upon receiving the news, classic Beach Boys music could be heard up and down the halls of the agency’s Birmingham, Atlanta and Austin offices.
Visit Panama City Beach was seeking a partner adept at using data and insights to inform creative and media to help promote the Gulf Coast city as a year-round family vacation destination. “Luckie understood how to get us closer to our target travelers and presented effective solutions for expanding the reach and impact of our ‘Real. Fun. Beach.’ brand,” said Dan Rowe, Visit Panama City Beach’s president and CEO.
During the selection process, Luckie emphasized use of data and applied marketing science to help consumers select a vacation destination.
“We were searching for an agency partner who not only understood travel and tourism, but was also willing to help us move to the next level in attracting year-round visitors,” said Rowe. “We also knew that to accomplish our goals, we needed an agency that could dramatically elevate our use of digital media, and Luckie demonstrated exceptional insight and capabilities in that area as well.”
“Luckie knows travel because we’re all about the human experience,” said Tom Luckie, CEO of Luckie & Company. “Our goal is to position Panama City Beach as the top family vacation destination on the Gulf Coast by utilizing data to create and tell a compelling human story that people will instinctively identify with and will want to be a part of. That’s what Panama City Beach was looking for, and we are excited to be working with such terrific client partners.”
