Adrian’s level of insight and knowledge into matching us with just the right kind of client is unparalleled. I have been on several sales trips in the UK and Europe with Adrian, and almost every meeting is like being introduced to old friends. He’s also a great human being, a pleasure to work with, both in meetings and in the bar afterwards – where, let’s face it, all the best deals are made. Our UK business has increased massively in the now two years that Adrian and his team have been representing us and is now our number two marketplace, coming in only slightly behind the USA.
I have had the pleasure to work with Canopy Marketing since 2016 in my role as Cluster General Manager for our three five star resorts in the Maldives, and currently we are collaborating on our new five star Resort that has recently opened in Mauritius.
Not only does the Canopy team make it easy to work with them, but their professionalism, dedication and vast network within the Hospitality Industry makes them a true partner in all that we do. Canopy always ensure all actions are well executed, as well as often coming forward with proactive measures and actions that can drive business and revenues.
When looking for someone to represent Bangkok’s leading independent luxury hotel in the UK and beyond, a close colleague (whom I initially thought to appoint) recommended Canopy. Explaining further, she said there is no one with stronger relevant regional knowledge and they had the level of relationships that would help us to grow our business. She was right! Canopy are down to earth, professional, enthusiastic, ethical and always there to help whenever needed. Their initiative to take control of any issue and get things done sets a standard. It’s a pleasure to work remotely with them as well as conduct sales trips, we know we can always rely on their advice and guidance.
Adrian is someone who understands the UK travel market inside and out – he can represent all sides which is invaluable when it comes to negotiating contracts, offers and marketing proposals. He knows what works and what doesn’t – and understands the limitations. He makes sure he knows the operator’s business as well as he knows his accounts and he can accurately match them together. He always responds to any queries in a timely manner. Straight talking and trustworthy, he has never let us down – a rare find in sales!
Khiri Travel has been working with Canopy Marketing for a number of years. Over the years they have become an invaluable asset to our company. Their wide and diverse network has helped us greatly in developing & growing our business interests in the UK and other source markets. Extremely knowledgeable and dedicated make Canopy a critical factor in our success.
We have worked with Adrian for a good number of years now and he is well regarded by the team here at Select. Adrian strikes the right balance between professionalism and approachability, the team admire his quick responses and attitude to problem solving which goes a long way in earning our trust, given the high profile of some of our clients. His presentations are insightful , engaging and honest, he works hard for his clients and importantly he will not try and sell us something he knows will not work for us. It is a pleasure to work with professional partners and we count Adrian and team Canopy as one of these.
Canopy have been a key part of our success in the European Markets. They have a great network and their insights are invaluable to our strategies in these markets. Canopy are professional and dedicated to delivering results across their markets. Personable and a real pleasure to work with I look forward to continuing our relationship and success.
We have worked with Canopy since the company’s inception and with Adrian for a great deal longer. His knowledge of the market, booking trends patterns and the needs of operators like Turquoise makes selling the properties he looks after easy. Meetings are always highly insightful, I can’t think of a more passionate, dedicated and professional team.
I worked with Canopy from 2016 – 2019 during my time at Minor Hotels as head of sales and marketing for three resorts in South Male Atoll, Anantara Dhigu, Anantara Veli and Naladhu Private Island. Canopy represented the resorts in the UK and were instrumental to the exponential growth of the UK market to the resorts in 2018, which was overall very successful year for the resorts. I personally enjoyed working with Canopy’s team as everyone was well informed and always in-the-know what was needed to support our business. They had a great sense of responsibility and in-depth market knowledge that was essential to the success. Canopy has an excellent reputation in the industry, and I think there is hardly an operator in the UK who would not be familiar with them.
From the moment he joined the team he made a positive impact with his humble attitude and respect of different cultures. Regardless the pressure he structured his team in a way he could focus of the strategy for the hotel. Today the results are very clear looking at the occupancy, ADR and rooms revenue.
