We have access to experts in all travel sectors from accommodation to ground transport, and every marketing discipline from research to social media. However our clients pay only for the expertise they require.

Graham is a very experienced business travel sales professional, having worked with TMCs, HBAs and in the meetings sector, winning and implementing major contracts. Over the years he has built up a formidable network of contacts at corporate, supplier and intermediary levels, joining TIN in 2017.
As Head of Sales, he is responsible for driving sponsorship and advertising income from TIN-commissioned projects, as well as developing new client relationships for the business. ‘Cookie’ (as he’s universally known) is a big Everton FC fan and once met is never forgotten!
Natalie looks after the events TIN manages on behalf of our clients. After entering the industry at the tender age of 18, her go-getting attitude has seen her progress quickly.
As well as many annual hospitality events, Natalie runs event management and production teams for some of Europe’s most popular festivals including Glastonbury Festival of Music and Arts, Outlook Festival and Snowboxx Festival. In her spare time you’ll either find her sliding down a snowy mountain or visiting a new corner of the world.
Each is a specialist in their field, with an immediate grasp of current thinking around the issues affecting travel buyers, suppliers and intermediaries. By harnessing this resource we can offer TIN clients an informed assessment of the opportunities to enhance their brands with compelling content that will engage and inspire their audiences.
