Tripadvisor has launched TripAdvisor Navigator, a proprietary first-party data platform delivering audience targeting, insights, and performance reporting.

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is one of the first clients to partner with TripAdvisor using this new data-intelligence solution for its latest campaign, which will be launching at the end of this year.

With the goal of promoting Abu Dhabi as a top destination to the TripAdvisor audience, the co-branded promotion will target high-intent travelers to discover more about the destination and deliver efficient conversions for DCT Abu Dhabi‌.

“With the pandemic impacting travel globally, now more than ever advertisers need timely and reliable first-party insights to ensure media is relevant and reflective of the fast-changing environment we’re living in today,” said Christine Maguire, vice president, Global Advertising Revenue, TripAdvisor.

“One of TripAdvisor’s greatest assets as a media platform is our wealth of first-party data. TripAdvisor Navigator allows advertisers to tap into this data intelligence to help brands understand audiences and reach them with the right message, in the right moment. We believe this behavioral data will enable marketers to determine where to most effectively invest their media budgets and therefore ultimately help toward the travel industry’s recovery.”

The campaign also incorporates a bespoke insights platform that enables partners like DCT Abu Dhabi‌ to monitor performance in real-time through their own performance dashboard, allowing them access to a market-specific understanding of the way users are engaging with the destination and how it stacks up against competitors.

‌‌Saeed Al Saeed,‌ ‌Destination Marketing Director, ‌‌ ‌Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi said: “As‌ ‌the‌ ‌world‌ gradually ‌reopens‌ ‌following‌ ‌this‌ ‌pandemic,‌ ‌real-time updates and active travel audience insights are more important than ever.‌ ‌The‌ ‌TripAdvisor‌ ‌platform‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌powerful‌ ‌demand-driver‌ ‌for‌ ‌our‌ ‌destination‌ ‌and‌‌ ‌a‌ ‌fantastic‌ ‌resource‌ ‌for‌ ‌decision‌ ‌making‌ ‌when‌ ‌it‌ ‌comes‌ ‌to‌ ‌our‌ ‌marketing‌ ‌spend. This is‌ ‌especially the case‌ when it comes to ‌tracking‌ ‌current‌ ‌trends‌ that ‌are‌ ‌changing‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌high‌ ‌level‌ ‌of‌ ‌frequency. We are‌ also ‌excited‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌launching‌ a new range of content‌ ‌— ‌aimed‌ ‌to‌ ‌inspire‌ ‌and‌ ‌drive‌ ‌even‌ ‌greater‌ ‌levels‌ ‌of engagement‌ ‌— ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌form‌ ‌of‌ ‌bespoke‌ ‌videos‌ ‌and‌ ‌podcasts that‌ ‌will‌ ‌inspire‌ ‌travelers‌ to ‌come‌ ‌to‌ ‌Abu‌ ‌Dhabi‌ once normal travel is resumed.”‌
