Frontline Media, the media independent born out of the ashes of GGK’s

media department at the beginning of this year, has scooped the new

pounds 2.25 million account for Queen’s Moat Houses UK without a

competitive pitch.



The work, which will be in support of individual hotels and hotel

groups, will be focused on press, radio and outdoor and brings

Frontline’s claimed billings to more than pounds 30 million.



Frontline already handles the pounds 1.5 million national corporate

advertising for Queen’s, having retained the business in March, shortly

after splitting with the creative incumbent, GGK. The national account

has since switched to Senior King, while SPS Advertising is the current

creative incumbent on the regional work.



The latest appointment is the first time the client has centralised its

regional spend in this way.



Queen’s owns 85 hotels nationally. The moat houses, similar in appeal to

Forte Posthouses, are mainly in urban conurbations around the country.

County hotels, such as the Royal Crescent in Bath and the Rose and Crown

in Salisbury, cover the more luxurious end of the market.



John Nichols, a managing partner of Frontline Media, said the win

justified the independent’s recent investment in bespoke computer

systems. ‘We have spent a lot of time and money developing a

sophisticated regional targeting application, which will be central to

this new business,’ he said.
