booking site wanted to boost their brand awareness in the United States, so they turned to out-of-home media to help. In early 2021, with news that domestic travel in the U.S. was expected to open

realized it was limiting their advertising reach. Instead, after a successful test pilot, Acronym unified Four Seasons' media buys, and the corporate office essentially gave them what amounts to a
"blank check," which enabled them to provide a more strategic and aggressive media investment.
