Allstate wanted to make authentic connections with boat owners while they were actively using their boats and deliver safety messaging that get them to think about their insurance coverage. Reaching boat owners efficiently is a challenge—there’s limited connectivity on or near water—no television, no terrestrial radio, no billboards, and limited internet.
American Park Network formed an exclusive partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers USACE—the world’s largest public engineering, design, and construction management agency and the nation’s largest
provider of outdoor recreation, operating more than 2,500 recreation areas at 463 projects (primarily lakes). The USACE hosts about 360 million visits a year across its facilities, many of which are leased to state and local park and recreation authorities or private interests. American Park Network partnered with the USACE to implement an Allstate-sponsored Safe Boating program that reached boat owners when they were visiting marinas generally and as they were backing their boats into lakes on boat ramps.
