MGM Resorts International needed a web experience that reflected their world-class entertainment offerings.

With fifteen separate properties located throughout the world, each with their own digital presence and organizational challenges, they didn’t have the infrastructure or expertise to offer a truly world-class digital experience to their guests.

In order to bring MGM’s guest experience vision and digital strategy to life, they needed a best-in-class technology and marketing platform that would allow them to manage content efficiently in order to serve relevant content to guests across multiple touchpoints.
