CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Regatta Travel Solutions
announced today that it has launched a new marketing campaign with Sojern for
Visit Seattle. The goal of the campaign is to leverage Sojern's sophisticated
data mining capabilities to search for and identify potential travelers to
Seattle, and attract them to book their hotel room on visitseattle.org.

"Our work with Regatta and Sojern supports our initiatives to increase
awareness of Seattle as a premier destination, highlight our incredible hotel
community and educate consumers about our booking engine,"said Tom Norwalk,
President and CEO of Visit Seattle. "We're always looking for innovative ways
to engage potentialSeattle visitors and the combination of Regatta and Sojern
provides insight and opportunity that we haven't been able to access or act
upon before now."

"Since Sojern has access to comprehensive travel intent data, we are able to
directly engage with people who have searched for a flight to Seattle, even if
they haven't actually booked anything yet," said Ashwin Kamlani, Founder of
Regatta Travel Solutions. "As a company we are constantly searching for
innovative methods to successfully identify and attract potential travelers
who are getting closer to booking their hotels on behalf of our CVB
(Convention & Visitors Bureau) clients. We are lucky to work with forward
thinking CVBs like Visit Seattle that are willing to try the most cutting edge
methods to increase revenue for their hoteliers."

"Regatta's 'Visit Seattle' campaign is a marketing trail blazer in the DMO
(Destination Marketing Organization) industry," said Mark Rabe, CEO at Sojern.
"We hope the campaign will show that when executed correctly, DMOs like Visit
Seattle can produce measurable, industry-leading campaign results by
leveraging their own 1^st party data. We look forward to collaborating with
Regatta on many other campaigns in the near future."
