Our Approach


Our unique destination marketing approach is founded on decades of experience in the travel industry, excellent contacts and a passion for what we do. This, coupled with our knowledge of the travel world, means we “get it” in a way others often don’t. And our commitment, determination and strong work ethic mean we don’t just get it… we get it done!


Decades of experience

The Tourism Portfolio approach is founded on the strong client-side background of our founder and Managing Director, Donna Kessler.

With over 25 years’ experience, we provide:
■ an understanding of what our customer needs
■ connections to the world, building global partnerships
■ a commitment to delivering exceptional, creative proposals and competitive pricing
■ solid destination and venue/ resort knowledge
■ tailor-made, customer driven solutions
■ attention to detail – and to you.



Donna and her team are true professionals who share the same business ethic as Chateau Élan. They are a perfect match and I know our clients are in the best hands.
