Flamingo Marketing Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Happy Birthday to us!
Leisure and tourism specialist agency Flamingo Marketing is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Created by Nikki Smith in 2009, Flamingo is a marketing agency specialising in visitor attractions.
Since its launch, Nikki has grown the business from a one person operation to a team of 10. Newest team member is Yasmin Balcombe, based in London, who joined recently to head up travel trade sales and partnerships.
Flamingo works with businesses across the UK ranging from iconic visitor attractions like Blenheim Palace and the Mary Rose to heritage sites such as Charlestown Shipwreck Treasure Museum, brand homes – Beefeater Gin as well as theme parks, wildlife parks, special events and experiences.
Nikki and her team are also working with leading events promoter Raymond Gubbay Ltd to launch a series of Christmas themed experiences including festive light trails at Dunham Massey, Stourhead, Bedgbury and Belton and the Alice in Wonderland experience at Blenheim Palace.
“I originally set up Flamingo Marketing to offer experienced hands on support for visitor attraction marketing from a team that really understands the business,” said Nikki.
“Our success has been down to our flexible and results-driven approach which means we really do work in harmony with in-house teams.”
“When I began looking at potential clients it was my ideal to work with some amazing places and it is fantastic to see how we have grown and with such a diverse mix of attractions.
“The majority of our work now comes to us from recommendations and we are all really excited about our plans for the future as we take on new projects.”
As well as growing its client base, Flamingo has also created opportunities for growth and development within the team with staff members who joined as graduates successfully completing CIMs in digital marketing.
