Entered in Facebook Campaign, Ambassador & Celebrity Campaign


Trump International Hotel Las Vegas - Boo "Worlds Cutest Dog" Facebook Campaign

We targeted Boo, "The World's Cutest Dog" for a media visit to promote a summer package "The Dog Days of Summer". We offered a free penthouse stay in exchange for editorial photography rights and a social media post on Boo's very popular Facebook page. That post is here:

In advance of their stay, we commissioned a plush dog bed, robe and slippers (which we now sell in our Trump Store) that we gifted to Boo as an amenity.
