Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. announced that it awarded 60,000 resort certificates as part of its Reveal a World of Possibilities resorts campaign. The learning burst, which ended last week, educated travel professionals around the world on the more than 200 resorts in Starwood’s global portfolio. Travel professionals from more than 40 countries visited StarwoodPro.com to view a six-minute video that focused on the company’s dynamic resorts. After completing the learning burst, each participant earned $250 in resort credits to share with their best customers.

“We are very pleased with the success of our recently completed Reveal a World of Possibilities resorts campaign,” said Chris Austin, vice president, global retail leisure and luxury sales for Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “We attracted a large number of travel professionals who were eager to learn more about Starwood’s robust resorts portfolio, which spans the globe and features many award-winning hotels. Now, they can surprise and delight their customers with a special resort credit for their next vacation.”

Participants in the Reveal a World of Possibilities earned 10 resort credit award certificates worth $25 to present to their clients as a special gift when booking a resort vacation or to use for their own resort stay. Valid for travel through March 31, the award certificates can be used for bookings made via the GDS, call center, Web or preferred tour operators and wholesalers at participating properties. The certificates can be combined with current Starwood offers, including the newly launched SPG Kids Pass. www.starwoodhotels.com
