Peter Antoniou, Country Manager in UK & Republic of Ireland for SWAROVSKI OPTIK
“SWAROVSKI OPTIK has worked with the GEC PR team for many years and I have always been impressed with their professionalism and creativity. They generate impressive media coverage across a wide range of publications and platforms, and continuously initiate premium partnership opportunities that deliver the results that we need.”

Laura Bartlett, CEO and Editor-in-Chief for House of Coco
“A number of writers from House of Coco have worked closely with the team at GEC PR for several years now on a wide range of editorial features and press trips, including to locations as fabulous as the Maldives. It’s always a pleasure to work with a PR agency that understands our luxury lifestyle focused audience, and GEC PR achieves this effortlessly through the tailored content they provide and opportunities they pitch to us.”

Faith Yi, International Communications Manager for Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants
“Sarah and Fiona have been an integral part of Kimpton’s international PR efforts in the U.K. market. As savvy publicists, they were always proactively trendspotting, sharing the latest consumer reports, and identifying clever ways to leverage the Kimpton brand with target business and consumer media. Their efforts have garnered qualitative brand awareness in the U.K. despite our historically U.S.-only footprint.”

Izumi Nakagawa, Hotelier, Kyoto Traveler’s Inn in Japan
“I met Fiona in Kyoto several years ago, so when I decided to come to London to attend a travel trade fair in 2019, I got in touch with Fiona again to see if GEC PR could help me with UK media and influencer meetings and press trips and hotel reviews. GEC PR worked with me to identify ways to engage with our target UK audiences before, during and after my trip to London, and I’m very pleased with the media and influencer contacts gained, trips carried out and media coverage generated. The results covered the PR fees and cost of my trip several times over.”

Alessandra Alonso, Founder of Women in Travel CIC
“GEC PR assisted Women in Travel with the successful launch of our international Forum at the start of 2020. I found the team’s energy, creativity, and enthusiasm invaluable in terms of getting media partners and event sponsors on board and promoting the event across the UK and internationally. As a social enterprise, we do not have large marketing budgets, so utilising GEC PR’s great media relationships and focusing on engaging editorial to promote the event was paramount – and it worked.”

Graham McKenzie, TravelMole
“I’ve worked with the GEC PR team for many years and have always found them to be a highly professional and experienced PR agency. They are quick to respond to editorial requests and always provide relevant, engaging news stories for our readers. They are a joy to work with.”

Nick Caunter, Managing Director of Airport Parking & Hotels (APH)
“The GEC PR team has represented APH for many years now, They always respond quickly and creatively to requests and truly understand our needs. The team are a joy to work with, and respond to PR challenges creatively and strategically. APH look forward to working with GEC PR for many more years to come.”

Annie May Byrne-Noonan, The London Journalist
“I just want to extend my thanks for the fabulous event you organised. It was really top-notch and by far the best organised and highest quality press event I have ever attended! Thank you again and I hope to meet/work with you again very soon.”

Benjamin Bryant, Director of Benjamin Bryant Creative & Outsider
“As the UK representatives for the Maldives Tourist Board, the GEC PR team have provided me with many partnership opportunities to work with the destination including introductions to their wide database of resort contacts, as well as invitations to take part in panel discussions at events such as World Travel Market and the recent hugely successful Maldives Facebook Live event. I have always found the team extremely helpful and look forward to working together on many more opportunities in the future.”

Sarah Morgan, Travel Editor at The Review Magazine
“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for inviting me to your press event yesterday. I had an absolute ball and think it was one of the press events I have attended – so congratulations to all involved.”

Azzy Asghar, Publisher, Epicurean Life
“I have known Fiona and Sarah for several years now and have worked with the whole team at GEC PR on press trips and product reviews for their travel and lifestyle clients. I’ve always found them to be the most responsive of PRs, as well as a pleasure to work with.”

Amit Patel, Managing Director of Simply Maldives
“Simply Maldives has nothing but positive things to say about GEC PR. We have a great working relationship and think it’s important to work even more closely in the future to help bring the Maldives travel business from the UK back to its heights.”
