Our Services

We’ll help you promote your company, offering or event. Or we’ll get you first-hand, personal contact with organisations that are relevant to your current goals.

Doors Unlocked.

Personal contacts are our speciality. Not lists of names and emails, but real people we work with daily or who we’ve successfully interacted with in the past. Over the past 14+ years we’ve accumulated social capital with both major and niche-leading players in the travel industry. We can open the door to the people you want to meet, or find you the perfect partners for that particular project you have in mind.

Know Your People.

As you may have surmised by now, it’s all about the connection. In the game of travel media and travel trade, brands reach far and wide when they have access to engaged and influential contacts. As our client, you’ll gain instant access to a vast network of UK-based and global contacts who will open new doors to your business success.

Your Brand to the Fore

We’ll work with you to ensure your brand is seen by the people you want to connect with.

This includes advising you on the partnership opportunities most relevant to your brand, helping you shape positioning strategies, select advertising channels and, ultimately, placing your brand in front of the people you want to meet.

Your Dream Trip across Travel Media

What your brand needs is media coverage that’s quick, easy and efficient. That’s why it makes sense to tap into the vast expertise and network of experts who’ve been there before – for many years. We’ll help you sell in your company or product to the publications you would like to appear in, or help you find a PR company to help you with your current project.

Born and Bred in Connection

The Travel Connection Group is a consultancy offering sales, marketing, event support and PR advice to travel companies. We also offer support to companies outside the travel industry that want to connect with travel brands.

Howard Salinger set up the company in 2017, after 14 years spent as a director at TravMedia, the travel industry’s global media network. While gaining a huge database of contacts and earning a name among top UK travel journalists and marketing and PR contacts, Howard knew there was an important factor in how the travel industry worked: a focus on personal connections.

After a lot of strategising, The Travel Connection Group was born, a full-service consultancy that blends data and human touch to deliver a superior experience in the business of travel industry networking and marketing.
