Creating that value proposition to sell your business or destination is essential to increased visitation and sales. Airlines do it with rewards programs and the always-enticing seat sale. Destinations do it by offering something unique and different that the consumer can’t get at home. Give people great memories and they will be your number one sales people. It also never hurts to have a finely tuned message, a great website, and an endorsement in the travel section from a major daily newspaper to drive you business.

BC Hughes has teamed up with some of Canada’s most creative and skilled advertising craftspeople to deliver results for your campaign. Since we live and breathe all aspects of the tourism supply chain, we understand your product and target audience like no other. We deliver world-class campaigns that produce results.

Marketing Strategy Development & Delivery

Realizing that tourism agencies are not flushed with cash, drives our team to be even more creative and develop strategies that wont break the bank and will drive business. Let us dig into an existing strategy and help with the delivery or build a new one from the ground up.

Spectacular imagery sells. We work with several independent photographers that have created special contract rates to come to your location and get you some serious pics. Having an inventory of photos and video pays dividends.
