Britain’s largest and fastest growing hotel brand, Premier Inn, today reveals it will launch a new multi-million pound advertising campaign targeting business travellers.

The new campaign is set to support the evidence that British businesses are now buying smarter and switching from 3 or 4 star hotels to the budget sector*.

The print ads will run for twelve weeks from March 12th 2009 across a range of national media, including The Times, Daily Mail, The Sun and The Metro.

Steve Conway, Head of Marketing for Premier Inn says, “This ad campaign highlights the quality and value of the Premier Inn brand, demonstrating that businesses need not compromise on quality when planning their travel.”

The campaign was created by Premier Inn’s advertising agency, Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe, and was built around a strategy of highlighting the key features and benefits of Premier Inn versus 3 and 4 star hotels.

Premier Inn recently won the Business Travel World Award for the Best Business Hotel Brand 2009 and Best Expense Management Solution for it’s Business Account Card. The brand was also voted as top in the customer service stakes in the Leisure and Tourism category, by the Institute of Customer Service Customer Satisfaction Awards.
