‘Live with no excuses and travel with no regrets’
Travelling always adds for an adventure in one’s everyday lives, but when travelling is your career you are brought where the winds take you… or sometimes where your editor sends you! This year, Hornblower Niagara Cruises has welcomed hundreds of travel writers, producers, T.V. personalities and social influencers thanks to the support from tourism industry partners including Destination Canada, Destination Ontario, The Niagara Parks, Niagara Falls Tourism and Tourism Partnership of Niagara. This year we’ve had the pleasure of hosting a number of media that communicated our #inthemist story on many different communication platforms, for example, film, radio, social media and one of the biggest for us this year, on National television. Although there were many to choose from, below are some of our media highlights from 2018.
ESPN Genesis Halftime Show with Bush
Monday Night Football has a new marquee sponsor, the luxury brand car, Genesis who joined as the sponsor during the network’s 49th season, making it sport’s television longest running series. As part of the Monday night shows, musical performances offer a bit of additional halftime entertainment including past performances by Lil Wayne, Tori Kelly and most recently English, rockband Bush who performed their smash hit, ‘Come Down’ at Hornblower Niagara Cruises in October.
