Leading provider of film content for

Promotional opportunities for hotels

Many major films are available in special early windows, prior to home entertainment release, which means that your hotel can provide guests with their very own film premiere.

'62% of business travellers said that the quality of the in-room entertainment influences their perception of a hotel' *

Research has shown that in-room entertainment is one of the most important factors when guests are selecting their hotel. There has never been a better time to use the biggest Hollywood movies as the lead for a promotion in your hotel in order to generate PR, occupancy and more importantly, increase in-room spend.

Filmbank can work with hoteliers by promoting hit movies and packaging them in a way that is attractive to regular as well as potential guests. Many movies are available in a special 'early-window' period, 3-4 months before DVD release and just 10-12 weeks after cinema providing your hotel with a real marketing advantage.

Hotels with Filmbank content are able to make use of the following tools:

  • Trailers
  • Film poster artwork
  • Film stills
  • Potential 3rd party tie-ins (subject to studio approval) and brand association

There is an enormous window of opportunity for hotels to promote their entertainment to guests both prior to and during their stay. Consider the following:

  • Prior to booking
    - Banner advertising on hotel websites promoting the latest movies on offer or even streaming trailers.

  • Following online booking
    - Confirmation email including details of which films will be showing during their stay.

  • On check-in:
    - Branded room key wallets with the latest big release film showing in their room.
    - Reception staff letting guests know exactly what is available to them.

  • During their stay
    - 3rd party promotions

  • Make the most of PR opportunities
    - Filmbank work with William Murray PR, a specialist PR agency working within the hospitality industry, to drive awareness of the opportunities available to hoteliers as well as working with hotel groups to put together their promotions and maximise media exposure.

To find out more on how you can run these kinds of promotions please call +44(0)20 7984 5966 or email
