Simon Launches

Holiday Marketing Campaign

· Holiday,Simon Brand

This Holiday, Simon Malls, Mills, and Premium Outlets have developed multi-faceted marketing campaigns to drive traffic and sales conversions to our retailers through:

  • High impact creative assets featuring compelling storytelling across multiple channels.
  • Targeted media strategy to promote each of the centers, their brands and their holiday offerings.
  • Experiential activations and events to create a festive and fun holiday environment.
  • Services and amenities to make shopping easy and convenient.

Advertising Campaigns

Simon is again using video as the hero creative asset for the 2018 Holiday season. Each Simon platform (Malls, Mills, Premium Outlets) will run custom videos across paid digital and social media channels, in addition to streaming radio, print, OOH and television (Premium Outlets only). The campaigns will be further amplified through Simon-owned digital and on-mall channels, public relations, and influencer marketing efforts.

Take a look at our holiday videos:
