Sponsored by Businesswire

The Field Museum, one of Chicago’s premier cultural institutions, has
selected Target Data as their strategic marketing partner. Target Data
will be responsible for marketing strategy and campaign execution across
online and offline media channels. Utilizing a data-driven people-based
approach, Target Data will help increase attendance and drive awareness.

“We are very excited about this partnership. Cultural institutions such
as the Field Museum are very important to our city and helping them
innovate in their approach to marketing is really special,” said Target
Data CEO Ross Shelleman. “The Field Museum will have a true people-based
marketing solution that will utilize data in a way that will be more
advanced than many deployed by for-profit institutions.”

Target Data will leverage the museum’s visitor data to focus marketing
efforts on reaching the right consumers at the right time. By placing
data at the center of their marketing strategy, they will work to
increase awareness and purchase consideration through strategic
audiences that range from local residents to international travelers
visiting Chicago.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Target Data. Their ability to develop
and efficiently target strategic audience groups will extend the reach
of the museum’s message across the Chicagoland area and beyond,” said
Field Museum’s Chief Marketing Officer, Ray DeThorne.
