We work with travel brands of all sizes
We’ve been in the industry for nearly 20 years – connecting people within the travel world is what we love!
About us and our journey
TCG was formed in 2017 by Howard Salinger. Known for his extensive travel industry network, he wanted to create a company where people across the industry could connect with media through events, whilst offering a simple PR soluation to SMEs on a limited budget.
As the Covid pandemic hit in 2020, TCG moved all operations into managing online events. We launched the Social with Media programme, which has expanded over 3 years to include a popular monthly webinar and quarterly networking events in London.
As the pandemic continued, more companies came to us for assistance, and we started managing virtual media events for Destination Canada, Israel Tourist Office and the German National Tourist Office to name a few. We were also approached to manage virtual agent roadshows for the likes of Gold Medal, Kerzner International and the AMR Collection.
We soon became known as the virtual events experts!
2022 saw our first Media Getaway event – a travel industry networking event deliberately hosted outside London, bringing travel companies from all over the world together with travel media from across the UK & Ireland. Our event in Manchester was a huge success and we’re looking forward to being in Leeds in 2023.
Our purpose is to connect Travel PR and Marketing representatives with Travel Media – in an innovative, accessible, flexible and sustainable way.
We work with travel brands of all sizes – to enhance your tourism and travel marketing strategy by putting your brand in front of specialist media who have access to the audience you want to reach.
We’re known for our ability to sort out the nitty gritty of event management and to curate exactly what’s needed to create the best possible connections for everyone involved.
PR representatives trust us to assist with expanding their media network – through us they can meet potential new clients, learn from industry professionals and enjoy networking opportunities with other PRs.
Travel Media professionals come to us to expand their networks – both in the UK and internationally. We’re often the first to hear the latest exclusive industry stories. We assist in making other professional journalist connections and connecting media with the PRs that can help them with their content.
Our Event Management service takes care of everything – whether it’s a virtual, face to face or a hybrid event. To free up your time, we handle social media and email marketing, presentation training, technical arrangements, breakout rooms, and post-event attendee data. We’ll help you present your brand in the best possible way, leaving you to focus on making those connections and enjoy the event!
Travel Connection Group have been our saviour during the Covid pandemic. We held several international webinars with them, of all different sizes and formats.
Their collaborative approach and calm direction always gives us the reassurance to deliver brilliant events.
