For our valued clients

Hogan and Associates offers a comprehensive range of marketing services to our clients.  Our key point of difference is that we have extensive experience in all facets of the travel industry that we can call upon.  We have the support staff to ensure that the office is manned consistently so that even during roadshows or sales trips, the office is still ticking along.  We can have Mike in a product meeting, Susie doing the sales calls, Heather creating a flyer and updating websites and Shar sending out specials ... all for you, all at the same time.

We realise that your requirements may not be the same as someone elses.  Therefore our services can be tailor-made to suit your needs - you may need a full sales, marketing and representation presence in the New Zealand market or you may just need someone to assist with some retail sales calls.  That's your choice and we will tailor-make your representation package to suit you.  Our commitment to our clients is absolutely paramount therefore we do make an undertaking that we will represent only non-conflicting clients.  We also pride ourselves on our uncompromised service levels - therefore we won't over-commit ourselves to too many clients and let those standards drop.  We have a limited number of client spots available so will only take on another client if a spot becomes available.
