IHG Hotels & Resorts launches ‘Department of Epic’ with chance to win a year of free hotel stays

Published on : Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Today, IHG Hotels & Resorts announced a contest that will give one lucky US-based traveler the chance to win back a year of missed adventures with 365 days worth of epic hotel experiences at various IHG locations, including InterContinental, Kimpton and Holiday Inn Express.

The world is a big and beautiful place, so for travelers ready to start exploring again and embark on over-the-top experiences – IHG is excited to be welcoming everyone back.

The contest, which aims to give guests back the time, memories and travel experiences lost in 2020, is part of IHG’s new Department of Epic – a program which will help guests bring their travel dreams to life. Whether it’s exploring the Grand Canyon, taking in the magic of Napa Valley with a hot air balloon experience or swimming with whale sharks in the Maldives – IHG has a hotel for wherever you want to go and for however you want to stay.

“At IHG Hotels & Resorts, our teams connect people through travel and we’ve missed making that happen,” said Claire Bennett, Chief Customer Officer, IHG Hotels & Resorts. “With the launch of our Department of Epic, we’re helping kick start the memorable and epic experiences people have been waiting for – strengthening family bonds, celebrating milestone moments, uniting far-flung friends, forging business partnerships – across our hotels around the world.”

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes with exclusive perks, such as:

In addition to these exclusive perks and as part of the Department of Epic, IHG will provide tailored experiences through a Surprise & Delight Program. All consumers who are “Epic’d” will be rewarded with “Epic Extras” – from plush hotel slippers to a penthouse booking, the program will help create more memorable moments.

To enter the contest, travelers with wanderlust are invited to take to Instagram and Twitter and ‘tell IHG why they need an epic vacation – without telling IHG they need an epic vacation’, using #IHGTellMeContest and tagging @ihghotels. The winner will be announced on August 2.

Those who can’t wait to take flight and want the instant vacation feeling can tune in to Clubhouse, the number one live social audio app, on June 22 from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. ET where IHG will host a hotel audio soundscape that will take listeners through a virtual journey of a hotel experience. From the moment guests enter the hotel lobby and hear light voices and casual greetings to the first dip in the pool with the sounds of water splashing and finally the music from the bar as you unwind with a night cap before heading to your room to fall asleep – all of the quintessential sounds of vacation will be one click away.
