InterContinental Hotels and Resorts introduced its Department of Epic, saying it wants to help bring people’s travel dreams to life while making up for lost travel time during pandemic.

To underscore that point, the hotelier is holding a contest that will give one lucky person a year’s worth of hotel stays at various IHG properties.

“At IHG Hotels & Resorts, our teams connect people through travel and we’ve missed making that happen,” said the chain’s chief customer officer, Claire Bennett. “With the launch of our Department of Epic, we’re helping kick start the memorable and epic experiences people have been waiting for.”

Meanwhile, the contest winner will get some pretty epic perks. The list includes receiving a complimentary basket full of their favorite snacks every time they check into a new hotel, an invitation to dine at an IHG hotel’s restaurant once a month over the course of a year, and instant Spire Elite status in IHG Rewards, the company’s guest loyalty program.  In addition, at some hotels, the winner will have access to a house car for various local trips and errands, and will receive a set of Kimpton bathrobes and a new mattress similar to those found in IHG properties.

Travelers can enter the contest on either Instagram or Twitter and, using the maxim that a picture is worth a thousand words, “tell IHG why they need an epic vacation  – without telling IHG they need an epic vacation” by posting a photo with the hashtag #IHGTellMeConteset and tag @ihghotels. The contest will remain open through June 20 and the winner will be announced on August 2.
