Albuquerque is an extremely competitive market, with Sandia, Isleta and Santa Ana Star casinos all better positioned geographically within the heart of Albuquerque. Combined, the four casinos saturate the market with gaming messages. Many of Route 66’s competitors have responded to recent declining economic conditions with discount offers and increasing reinvestment.
Leverage the property’s most ownable asset…Route 66. With a brand so intertwined with a rich part of American history, Concussion worked with our clients to create a distinct connection between the property and the pillars of the Route 66 genre – stylized graphics, fonts, colors, marquee lights and, of course…pinup girls. Led by our hero, “Miss 66,” the campaign has served notice to our competitors that Route 66 Casino delivers a unique experience that redefines entertainment in Albuquerque by leveraging the market’s location along the highway that made the city famous. We developed a marketing strategy that capitalizes on momentum gained in 2008, addresses competitors’ gravitation toward a price-driven value proposition and puts the brand’s external experience on an entirely different pedestal.
