Treasure Island Resort & Casino – Linnihan Foy

Creating an island of entertainment

Challenge

Since 1989, Treasure Island Resort & Casino has been known as Minnesota’s favorite casino. However, with a location just outside of the Twin Cities metropolitan ring and heightened competition within the gaming arena, Treasure Island was finding it increasingly difficult to attract new patrons and expand upon its market share.

As a result, “The Island” doubled down by taking steps to become a premier, regional entertainment destination. This included the addition of numerous non-gaming attractions, three hundred-plus new luxurious hotel rooms, the Lagoon indoor waterpark and an 18,000-seat outdoor amphitheater.

Action

Since partnering with Treasure Island in 2016, Linnihan Foy works in stride with the introduction of these new and ever-evolving objectives to construct and implement multiple integrated media plans. Plans that effectively and efficiently build upon Treasure Island’s brand, and achieve attendance and occupancy benchmarks. With simultaneous campaigns centered on events, concerts, hotel occupancy and more, Linnihan Foy helps turn the public eye to the Island’s amenities on a daily basis.

Result

In our first full-year of planning and placing media, Treasure Island Resort & Casino experienced a 31 percent increase in media impressions year over year – while spending 4.7 percent less.

The Treasure Island Amphitheatre has become widely recognized as one of the premiere concert venues in the Upper Midwest, continuously hosting international mega-acts and attracting tens of thousands of concert-goers each year.

With an incredible stable of highly-desirable amenities, increased hotel capacity, attractive gaming options and an always-on, multi-media campaign behind it, Treasure Island continues to sit in its rightful place atop the competitive landscape.
