Expertise

What we do and how we work with clients

Elgin & Co. combine expertise in communication, heritage and tourism. We work with cities, regions,  countries, public and private organisations on optimising their strategy and communication for the purpose of visitor experience development, preserving cultural and natural heritage, reputation management, stakeholder engagement, content and conversation strategy and planning.

Strategy tells you where to go. Communication inspires people to go there with you. It’s the only thing that ever does. We enjoy assisting people in achieving their goals. 

We feel privileged to have (had) the opportunity to work with organisations such as the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), UNWTO Themis, European Travel Commission (ETC), UNCTAD; Hotelschool The Hague, Rotterdam School of Management / Erasmus University and other educational institutions; a wide variety of DMOs and governmental organisations.
