The Challenge: Samsonite seems to struggle when it comes to attracting a younger audience. With a generic online presence, their brand recognition is non-existent. Our goal was to create a digital-first campaign to encourage more young travelers to choose Samsonite.
The Insight: Social media, particularly Instagram, made traveling a lot less special. In the age of influencers and trendy getaways, it became harder for people to have a unique traveling experience.
The Idea: It’s the savvy way.
We created a campaign that applauded travelers, who are looking for unique and savvy ways to travel and encouraged them to do that in the company of the savviest travel bag yet - Samsonite.
Introducing Sir Nite
We partnered with IBM Watson to create Sir Nite - the AI that can help you upgrade your travel plans from scrollable to thumb-stopping. The AI bot scrapes the most untagged and undiscovered locations to offer you a truly unique travel itinerary.

Instagram Suggestions from Sir Nite:
Traveling to trendy locations can be quite disappointing, especially if what inspired you to go in the first place was a photoshopped influencer post. Sir Nite will scrape Instagram to find the most disappointing travel posts and DM those travelers with ideas on nearby places to visit instead.
