About Brand

OYO, a trailblazing hospitality brand, has cemented its presence as a global leader in the hospitality industry. With an innovative approach and an unwavering commitment to guest satisfaction, OYO has redefined travelers' experience of accommodation. Established as part of the vibrant Indian business landscape, OYO has harnessed the power of technology to offer seamless and convenient stays for travelers worldwide.

The Brand Ask


With the return of travel in India following the easing of lockdown measures, OYO had a huge challenge: how to effectively express their constant commitment to providing passengers with secure and smooth holiday experiences. Interestingly, OYO's internal investigations revealed a widespread desire among potential tourists for promises of "safety" and "sanitization." To firmly answer this demand and create persistent faith in their brand, OYO launched two significant initiatives: the "Contactless Check-in" and "Sanitized Before Your Eyes" campaigns.

What Client Wanted

The need put out by OYO was understood by the Hindustan Times in collaboration with HT Media's integrated marketing solutions. The client's goal was to locate a media partner with a strong national presence and the ability to captivate their particular target audience—the young demographic between the ages of 20 and 34. OYO's extensive presence throughout India served as fuel for this project. Hindustan Times launched two effective campaigns to increase brand identification and raise product awareness for OYO while attaining an unmatched reach.

Target Group

Oyo's strategy goal is to captivate its target market, a young, active population aged 20 years to 34 years. The young crowd seeks experiences that reflect their contemporary and active lifestyles in addition to economical lodging.
