Travel Connection Group was formed in 2017 by Howard Salinger. Formerly the Regional Director UK of TravMedia, he wanted to offer a service connecting travel companies of any size with travel media, either through events or simple PR activity for smaller companies on a limited budget.
Utilizing the relationships he’s built up over 18 years working with travel media, he’s able to get straight through to the people who can help to promote your brand.
When the Covid-19 pandemic arrived in March 2020, TCG moved all of its operations into managing virtual events. This began with the launch of Social with Media, a regular media event with top journalists on a panel. The company then started to manage virtual media events for travel brands, including the German National Tourist Office, Caribbean Tourism Organization, Israel Tourist Office, Destination Canada and Silver Travel Advisor, amongst others.
In 2021 they started managing virtual agent roadshows for companies such as Gold Medal and Kerzner International.
In the space of 12 months TCG soon became a leader in the world of managing virtual travel events and were rewarded with the Best Travel Networking Company award in the 2020 SME London Awards. They are up for Best Representation Company at the upcoming TTG Travel Industry Awards.
