Ann Scott Associates is globally acknowledged as one of the world’s most effective public relations consultancies, borne of our unparalleled knowledge and unique understanding of the luxury hotel and travel sectors.
Ann Scott Associates was established in 1982. Dennis Davidson had approached Ann to join the leading film industry public relations company, DDA, and after two years on the board she was offered the role of International Sales and Marketing Director by one of the company’s new hotel clients in Egypt. Two years on, Ann was approached by Geoffrey & Jorie Kent to launch Abercrombie & Kent as a major tour operator in the UK, including promoting their African ground handling companies to Europe, and setting up an new ground handling company in Egypt. Spurred on by her passion for the business Ann left to set up her own owner-led specialist travel PR company. With a team of ten individuals, Ann Scott Associates is small enough for Ann and her team to personally know all their clients and large enough to make a significant impact. Perhaps most telling of all, our clients have grown organically – with one recommending the other within the luxury market.
Our philosophy is to maintain both our clients and our staff over the long term in order to create and deliver highly focused and effective campaigns, predominantly aimed at generating more business and increased revenue for our clients.
