More case studies


At a time when consumers have more choice than ever before about where and when to spend their hard-earned cash, and are more savvy about the type of holidays and experiences they are looking for, it is vital that a destination retains an on-going presence in its key markets, in both good economic times and bad.

A good representation company will keep a destination front of mind, open essential trade and consumer doors, and ensure a steady flow of media visits and coverage.

Hills Balfour’s reputation among UK travel professionals and the industry media is unrivalled. It has a track record of excellence that is not based on the impressive number of destinations it represents but on the quality, professionalism and sheer weight of innovative ideas that are contributed by its line-up of talented account executives
