Cornish Flamingo in the Pink!
Cornish-based attractions specialists, Flamingo Marketing are entering 2017 with a new team member heading up and strengthening its PR operations.
Highly-experienced in public relations, Drew Cunliffe has worked with a huge range of attractions including Longleat, Merlin Entertainments, Tractor Ted and Aspro UK – a leading leisure company which operates ten attractions including Blue Planet Aquarium, Deep Sea World, Bristol Aquarium, Blue Reef Aquariums, Oakwood Theme Park, and Smugglers Adventure.
Specialising in leisure and tourism, he has considerable experience working with visitor attractions; both in the UK and further afield.
“Results-PR has always been a major strength of our offer and with Drew joining the team we will be able to provide a significantly more comprehensive service to our clients,” said Flamingo Marketing Managing Director Nikki Smith.
“Drew has a background in journalism and knows what the media wants. He has huge experience, a wealth of media contacts and an ability to quickly identify storylines which work best for the client,” she added.
Since launching in 2009, Flamingo has quickly expanded from a one person operation to a team of eight.
During that time it has significantly extended its UK client base working with large visitor enterprises like Blenheim Palace and Treasure Houses of England; smaller heritage sites such as Newhaven Fort and Royal Gunpowder Mills to regional wildlife attractions – Birdland in the Cotswolds and theme parks including Cornwall’s Flambards.
“When I started the business I realised there was a niche in the market for a specialist agency for visitor attractions and museums who could work both with existing in-house marketing teams and also provide a one-stop shop opportunity for other clients,” said Nikki. “The key to our success has been our hand’s on practical approach and that we are grounded in our experience – we’ve been at the front end – having managed and marketed attractions.”
“From our base here in Cornwall we now work with clients across the UK and we are looking forward to continuing to grow the business in 2017.”
Flamingo Marketing is a dynamic, networked marketing consultancy designed to support tourism and leisure operators with solutions that work fast and deliver immediate results.
