Looking back on 2015 in travel, we have seen growth in many regions of the world and are privileged to play a role in partnering with great travel brands worldwide to continue to drive that growth.
For many, the holidays can be about hope and perspective, and with that we want to acknowledge some of the challenges many places around the globe have also faced this year. Like the holidays, travel also inspires hope and perspective by immersing people in unique experiences. We are fortunate to be able to help partners tell inspiring stories about their travel brands, to communicate the power of travel and remind travelers of that hope.
Through those partnerships this year we have had numerous campaigns recognized with awards in the travel and digital advertising industry. These accolades range from the best use of social media to best travel email campaign to best hospitality/hotel campaign and more. We also recently recognized seven of our North America and South America partners in our annual travel marketing award program at the Expedia, Inc. Partner Conference.
We look forward to continuing to partner with digital marketers to engage travelers across our platform in creative and innovative ways in 2016.
