Briefly describe this entry’s communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 125 words):


A Downtown Scottsdale landmark since 1956, Hotel Valley Ho (HVH) reopened its doors in 2006 and renovated its guest rooms and lobby in 2015. To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, HVH tasked The James Agency (TJA) to create a video showcasing its remodel. Also intended to serve as inspiration to employees, the video needed to be completed before the hotel’s holiday party.


Delivered on time and under budget, the video was unveiled at the HVH holiday party and the beauty of the final result brought many employees to tears. The video was then posted to HVH’s homepage, shared across social media platforms and included in employee e-mail signatures. HVH was extremely pleased with the end result and continues to receive positive feedback.
