Treebo Hotels announces Irrfan Khan as brand ambassador; launches first 360-degree brand campaign

Treebo Hotelshas roped in actor Irrfan Khan as itsbrand ambassador for its first 360-degree brand campaign. Treebo will roll out its integrated campaign with TVC, print, digital, and OOH advertisements.

Through this campaign, the hotel brand wants to reiterate its focus on bringing a revolution in the hotel industry by assuring quality experience and providing value for money to guests at its 250+ properties in over 50 cities in India. 

Treebo works on a technology-dependent, scalable model that allows the brand to have an absolute control over the properties’ service quality, ensuring a delightful experience for its guests. Catering to 70 per cent of the total hotel market in India, Treebo has built a robust ecosystem comprising multiple industry-first technology solutions and a strong on-ground team to maintain Treebo approved quality standards and guest experience across its properties.

Commenting on the campaign, Shubham Khurana, Director-Marketing, Treebo Hotels, said, “We are very excited about the campaign and our association with Irrfan Khan. Irrfan is a rare blend of talent and versatility and his personality mirrors Treebo’s brand persona.”

He added, “The budget segment hotels have always been perceived as the ugly duckling in the hotel industry and rightly so because of the quality of experience they offer. Through our campaign, we want to make people aware of Treebo’s promise of delivering a quality stay at our properties, which is one of the aspects people are most suspicious and unsure of. We want the suspicious ‘shaqi’ people to experience a Treebo because there is nothing like getting a validation from the ones who are hardest to please.”

Irrfan Khan said, “It's great to be a part of the Treebo family. Everyone has experienced the pain of staying at a budget hotel during family vacations and has unpleasant memories of not receiving the promised quality. I believe these experiences trigger suspicion and doubt amongst consumers and it is commendable to see a brand addressing that emotion. It's great to see the commitment of these young leaders to change the way the hotel industry functions, having already built Treebo as India's third largest hotel chain in a short span of two years. I believe in their ambition of bringing quality and consistency into the budget hotels segment in India, and I’m happy to be part of such an endeavour.”

Ashish Khazanchi, Managing Partner, Enormous Brands, added, “The Indian traveller often experiences a dichotomy when it comes to value-for-money or budget hotels. Buying into ‘Best Value’ comes with an implicit sense of compromise on quality of service and amenities. Overall, the budget stay experience is driven more by doubt than delight.Treebo, being India’s best-rated hotel chain comes with the reassurance of being approved by fellow travellers. It reflects the brand’s commitment to quality and service at affordable prices, putting all doubts and dichotomy to rest. The film showshow Treebo leaves no room for doubt while welcoming doubters.”
