Tourism Focus

We work exclusively with tourism clients. We do not work in any other industry. Break the Ice Media's clients benefit from our deep knowledge of the tourism industry. It's the difference between going to a brain surgeon over a generalist. By working in the tourism industry every single day, our team is the most informed on current trends and understands a wide variety of destination marketing strategies and tactics.

With a single focus, we go deeper, spend more time in the tourism industry and ultimately deliver maximum results to our clients.
