Travel and Tourism

Our travel and tourism clients depend on us to help define and continually communicate with their target markets in a positive and memorable fashion. One of our most effective strategies for showcasing a destination is the impeccably planned, well-coordinated Travel Journalist Trip, hosted by the destination in conjunction with HensleyFontana principals. These trips give working journalists a first-hand introduction to and in-depth experience of the client, highlighting the offerings of the destination while allowing the media free time for exploring, interviews, photography, and videography.

We are an associate member since 1988 of the Society of American Travel Writers, the largest and most prestigious professional organization of travel journalists in the world; as well as the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association; Society of Professional Journalists; and Skål International Association of travel & tourism professionals.
