"In spite of changes in frequency programs throughout the airline and hotel industries, we're focusing on ways to add value and increase loyalty among frequent travelers," he added. "Our research shows that customers want immediate recognition for their loyalty to the brand -- and by sweetening the pot with triple bonus miles we achieve several objectives: -- reward our core frequent travelers with miles -- that's what they tell us they want; -- increase trial, or first time Radisson guests; and win continued loyalty through our 'Yes I Can' service initiative and hassle-free guest experience. "We understand the benefit of working cooperatively with our travel industry partners to provide value-added consumer promotions that are consistent with established corporate travel policies," Storey added. Storey said the promotion was designed to be an additional, meaningful benefit to one of the company's most important markets, frequent business travelers. "As Radisson continues to expand its worldwide organization, we are focusing on marketing leadership with aggressive and innovative programs," he said.
