Marriott Moments: Marriott Bonvoy offering virtual interactions with Mumbai Indians

Marriott Bonvoy, the loyalty programme of Marriott International, was born out of the merger of Starwood Preferred Guest, erstwhile Marriott Rewards and the Ritz Carlton Rewards programme over the last few years. The merged and rebranded programme, which was launched in 2019, had new status tiers, hotel categories and other changes building upon the success of Starwood Preferred Guest and Marriott Rewards.

Last year, Marriott Bonvoy tied up to sponsor the Mumbai Indians Team as the Loyalty Partner of the team, which is a partnership they used to leverage and get more people to sign up for Marriott Bonvoy in India, and offer Bonvoy members an opportunity to interact with the team members as a part of their partnership. While the original intention was to do these interactions in the flesh, with the pandemic, these have moved to virtual interactions. Here is a picture from one of the Marriott Moments I participated in last year with the Mumbai Indians team.
