Kartagener Associates Inc.Go to All Members
Kartagener Associates Inc. (KAI) specializes in promoting the travel and tourism industries. KAI was founded in 1995 with the idea of creating marketing solutions for travel companies looking to increase sales in North America. With 20 years of success it is clear that this idea has been embraced within the travel industry. The KAI team has built a strong network of contacts that enables the firm to deliver travel and tourism information to the North American marketplace with unparalleled success. In addition to traditional methods, the KAI team regularly introduces creative and innovative ways to ensure that clients are increasing exposure and realizing increased sales.
KAI has assembled an award-winning collection of Hotels, Resorts, Safari Lodges & Camps, Trains, Destination Management Companies (DMCs), and Cruise Lines. Their partners represent travel brands with a presence in 33 international countries. But a company is only as good as its people and KAI has a top notch team with various backgrounds and expertise.
In early 2015 KAI introduced the KAI Foundation which is managed by Chairman Henry Kartagener. The KAI Foundation was created to undertake larger initiatives which can make a significant difference to a community in need. There are so many areas that have played a major role in allowing KAI to enjoy 20 years of success that could use some help. The first project which is currently underway is constructing a maternity ward in Mugarameno, a small village in Zambia. We anticipate that it will be completed by mid-2016.
In addition to sales & marketing representation and philanthropy KAI owns their own travel trade show, the Tour & Travel Exchange or TTE (www.tourandtravelexchange.com). TTE is an annual show that was started in 2011 and takes place in June in Scottsdale, Arizona. The boutique event focuses on upscale long haul travel and utilizes marketplace appointments and networking events to create working relationships.
