“Ignite Sales & Marketing has done a phenomenal job promoting the New Smyrna Beach area in the UK market. Before working together, our destination was having difficulty reaching out to an International market that was unfamiliar with our area. However, their hard work has made a significant difference in our destination’s awareness in only a short period of time. The Ignite team has been a great communicator and partner to help us reach out to UK media and trade, we trust the Ignite team to represent our company professionally and establish new relationships and awareness in the UK market. It is so easy to communicate with them as they are a friendly and devoted group of individuals who will work hard to exceed your expectations. The New Smyrna Beach team is honored to have Ignite Sales & Marketing as our partner.”

Whether the partner products has been a hotel, a tour or a destination, Ignite have always understood the unique demands of Trailfinders business model and found a way to make it work for us (and the partner) whatever the challenges. North America is Trailfinders most important market, and has seen exponential growth over the past few years; Ignite Sales & Marketing has certainly aided this growth through its management of key hotel products and aiding the growth of destinations. I have always found Damian to be hardworking, honest, open and responsive and does not shy away from confronting difficult issues.”
