Either for a new travel product that targets the end-travellers or a new B2B service that comes to provide a solution for global Hoteliers, Destsetters plans and strategically develops new dynamic Tourism Brand Concepts. In close collaboration with the brand’s owners or directors, the Destsetters experts study the features and characteristics of the new product or service, and specify the most original and dynamic Concept that would make it stand out and become a case study for its industry.

 
 

What we do:

 
 
  • Examine and evaluate the current competition with similar products or services.

  • Study the desired target groups and determine whether the provided features will satisfy the audience.

  • Conduct the Concept Manual, which documents all those details and characteristics that will make the new product stand out and become a 'case-study’ example.

  • Work closely with all other parties involved in the project (depending on each case, third-party collaborates may include architects, interior designers, software designers, photographers, graphic designers etc) and make sure that the results of their work will be in line with the specified concept.

  • Plan and make an initial set-up of the product’s online positioning and branding (supervising the website design and development, social media accounts set-up, media platforms presence etc).

  • Determine the initial online and offline strategy that need to be followed, in order for the new product to penetrate the desired market more easily and effectively.

TRAVEL BY INTEREST

January 2012 — Present

For this innovative startup, Destsetters studied the needs of the tourism and travel industries and created a platform that targeted travellers based on specific and popular travel interests (Gay, Luxury, Food, Wellness). 

The hotels are promoted through original and impressive content, which is always 'bookable’ (meaning that the hotel’s official booking engine is integrated in each piece of content). 

In its latest update (to be released in Nov. 2018), Travel by Interest will gather the hotels into themed collections, narrowing the choices and making the hotel market research for the travellers much more easy and specific.

Revenue Sources:

  • Search campaigns: For Hotels that want to be presented and promoted within the travelbyinterest.com platform.

  • Dedicated articles/special content: For Hotels that want to develop unique and exclusive SEO-friendly content, with back links and integrated booking engine.

  • Sponsored collections: For Hotels that want to be on the top of the list within dynamic hotel collections.

  • Advertising opportunities: For companies that want to be featured within the travelbyinterest.com pages, either in the form of advertising banners, or through dynamic widgets with a 'search to get instant results' functionality.

RHODES MEDIEVAL GARDENS

Rhodes Island, Greece | June 2018 — May 2019

For this project, Destsetters works with Stirixis S.A., one of Rhodes’ most well-established construction companies. The project is about the re-operation of one of the city’s most iconic spots, the municipal gardens, just outside the Medieval City walls. 

Since the 1960s, and for approximately 50 years, the municipal gardens had been operating as a 'Sound & Light' spectacle, attracting thousands of spectators from all over the world. Since 2006 the park has remained unused, with plans to open again in May 2019. 

The new concept for this project talks about a public Garden in the city centre, with several recreational and entertainment possibilities. Local flowers, trees and herbs will guide the visitors through a fun garden full of activities for children and relaxing spots for adults, while the different F&B outlets will be offering quality options for food & drink. Last but not least, the traditional 'Sound & Light' spectacle revives, through an impressive 3D mapping projection on the walls of the medieval Palace of Knights.

For this project, Destsetters is in charge of:

  • General Concept Manual development

  • Individual Concept Manual development for each individual business or activity

  • Supervision of all third party collaborators (landscape architects, lighting architects, interior designers, graphic designers etc)

  • Strategic specification of the general as well as the individual websites that will be developed

  • Specification and supervision of the garden’s photo shoot

  • Development of the main presentation video’s storyline

  • Initial set-up and supervision of the Garden’s entire online presence and communication
