12 Sep 2018
The hospitality consulting company PKF hotelexperts introduces the launch of its affiliated firm PKF tourismexperts.
The new company, specialising in tourism consulting, is headed by Christopher Hinteregger.
PKF tourismexperts aims at being a professional and reliable partner for public authorities, DMOs and project initiators when developing tourism destinations. Christopher Hinteregger and his team bring a vast knowledge in the field of tourism destination development (for numerous types of destinations) on a local, regional and national level. Considering the increasing demand for consultancy services in this field, and the complexity of tourism destination development, the establishment of PKF tourismexperts will become a meaningful enrichment to the already well-established PKF hotelexperts brand. PKF tourismexperts offers a full range of services for tourism destinations: from comprehensive tourism master plans and tourism development strategies to digitalisation and marketing strategies along with seminars, trainings and presentations.
Christopher Hinteregger is an expert in tourism destination development with more than 15 years of experience. Christopher implemented more than 50 tourism development projects in 20 countries, including tourism master plans for the Republic of Macedonia, Tatarstan Republic in Russia, Split-Dalmatia County in Croatia and the Mountain Resort Jahorina in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Furthermore, Christopher is a lecturer of destination development at the IMC University of Applied Science in Krems, scientific director of the UN World Tourism Organization Congress on Snow and Mountain Tourism in Andorra and a regular speaker at international tourism conferences.
Michael Widmann, Managing Director of PKF hotelexperts: “For more than 90 years, PKF has been a market leader in hospitality consulting. Consulting for large-scale resort developments has been a key service. The focus on destination development is thus a logical step in providing, amongst others, comprehensive hospitality & tourism master plans.”
Christopher Hinteregger, Managing Director at PKF tourismexperts: “Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. On the one hand, a sustainable and successful tourism development can have many positive effects on destinations. On the other hand, it is a very unique industry which needs specific know-how about the necessary mechanisms to be successful. I am very much looking forward to my new task of developing PKF tourismexperts and working on upcoming tourism development projects in which we will be involved.”
