Now that Wynn Resorts’ $2.6 billion Encore Boston Harbor has opened, the resort has introduced a guest-luring ad campaign to get the word out as it ramps up. 

Launching later this month, the “A World Above” campaign is anchored by a 90-second video set to “Nothing but the Best” by Frank Sinatra and features basketball icons Magic Johnson and Larry Bird and dance-music duo The Chainsmokers.

Television ads will air in Boston and surrounding markets in Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Jersey, bolstered by radio, newspaper and outdoor advertising in the same markets, as well as digital and print ads. West Coast execution of the campaign begins this month.
