WHY WORK WITH BLACK TOMATO? •

With a focus on performance and innovation in terms of the product and service we offer and an unwavering commitment to our clients, today Black Tomato is a multi-award winning, fully-integrated travel and incentive company that has recently been recognized as the 47th fastest growing privately-owned business in the UK.

We currently have a multilingual staff of 55 based in our London Head Office, a small but fast growing team in New York and a trusted partner network throughout the globe, which allows us to service our truly global client base in a seamless fashion and provide 24/7 care.

We have experience of delivering events in the UK and Worldwide for between 8 and 800 people. True Global Reach – in 2010 we had 3000 people travelling to over 100 different destinations and we aspire to provide ‘one distinctive experience, wherever we are in the world’.

We are an Externally Audited and Certified ISO 9001 company meaning that our Internal Quality Management System (the way that we work!) meets and exceeds an Internationally recognised standard and benchmark for quality.

We are fully ATOL/ABTA/IATA bonded for complete piece of mind CREDIBLE – COMPLIANT – HIGH PERFORMING - SUCCESSFUL


WHY WORK WITH BLACK TOMATO? •

With complementary corporate and leisure travel divisions within the company, we combine the benefits of a high quality, volume leisure business with our corporate group business to offer our clients the most up to date advice and best possible rates.

We are also able to leverage our own brand – which suppliers, tourist boards and other global companies such as Dunhill are keen to be associated with – in order to deliver the most cutting-edge experiences and exclusive access to our corporate clients.

We are therefore uniquely positioned to provide more creative and differentiated travel incentives than our competitors, thanks to the unique relationships, expertise and approach we have developed in our quest to do things differently within the incentive travel marketplace.

Our corporate client base today includes many of the biggest brands and blue-chips on the planet, who we provide a huge range of incentives to, in order to help them stand out from the crowd in an increasingly competitive and complex climate. VALUE – PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE – EXPERIENCE - CREATIVITY


GENERATING COST SAVINGS •

Black Tomato is uniquely positioned within the incentive travel industry to offer the best possible value for your incentive programmes

Alongside our corporate division, we have a high quality, volume leisure business servicing high-end private clients. This allows us to obtain the most competitive rates from properties and suppliers that we are using for both sides of the business and also ensures a fantastic pool of travel knowledge within the Company, with leisure consultants specialising in different regions of the world on hand to support our incentive team.

Due to increasing awareness and recognition of the Black Tomato brand, we are able to obtain rates and access from suppliers and tourist boards that are equal to and often better than much larger companies are able to secure – as people genuinely want to work with us. Hotel groups such as W Hotels, for example, are currently paying us to have a brand partnership with them, so offer us superb rates and other benefits as a result.

We’ll also use our unrivalled travel knowledge to ensure that we absolutely maximise the impact of your incentives but minimise their cost, by ensuring you travel at the best possible time to a certain destination from a cost v quality perspective i.e. shoulder rather than high season.


GENERATING COST SAVINGS •

With an unwavering focus on client care, we’ll obsessively seek value for all your incentives and take the time to genuinely understand the needs of the group attending each one. We’ll then tailor-make a programme accordingly, saving cost wherever we can by organizing a stand-out experience, but one that is aligned to the expectations and experience of the participants.

In April 2010 we joined the Independence Group, which is a consortium of independently-owned and managed travel companies operating under one of the largest ATOL licenses in the UK. The buying power of the combined group ensures that we access the most competitive possible rates for travel elements, but also for credit cards and Foreign Currency – saving you money every step of the way.

Your business means a lot to us, so we’re flexible on management and retainer fees and will also offer ‘net net’ rates to you – allowing you to claw back budget through the hotel and other supplier commissions that most incentive companies will keep for themselves.

As a dynamically growing business with relatively low overheads, our fees and margins are lower than those of the biggest agencies – so we’ll ensure we’re supporting you and not the other way round.

THE WORD ON THE BLACK TOMATO VINE...

One of the 100 coolest things in the world. Don’t even try to live without them.

I really don't feel that any words can do Black Tomato justice but I can honestly say that with all the suppliers I have ever dealt with and on all the projects that I've worked on, this was by far and away the most happy I have ever been with the service I've received as a client.

Black Tomato’s input from the initial stages of concept development to final fulfilment have proved invaluable. Your creative suggestions for experiences were exceedingly beneficial.

Black Tomato has been phenomenal. Adding the extra wow factor seems to come as part of every project. The ones to watch. Black Tomato is part of the group of people redefining travel.

They deliver outstanding events which demonstrate they clearly understand the egg brand. Their range of ideas is always fantastic and they have an outstanding knowledge of destinations around the world.

ESSENTIAL EXTRAS – HIGH IMPACT LOW COST (just an idea!) Pre Event Teaser Postcards‌

Why not get your team in the mood for the event, ensure that they hit their targets and win their spot on the trip. We can design, personalise, produce and send postcards to each of your potential delegates ensuring you not only get the best from your team, but you get them excited about the event before it even starts!


ESSENTIAL EXTRAS – HIGH IMPACT LOW COST (another idea!) Back To Reality Post Event Pack

Mountains of e-mails, no food in the fridge, you can’t get back into your favourite TV series because you have missed episodes… The first day back after an amazing trip away is often a pretty depressing one! To counteract that, our “Back to Reality” service should hopefully help. Delivered to your doorstep in a nice shiny envelope, it is our antidote to that nasty first day back feeling. Our kit includes a DVD movie that is relevant to the Incentive Event destination and a copy of The Week magazine to reintroduce you to the real world. So sit back, flop in front of a film and catch up with world events at your own pace. It’s not another trip away, but as reality checks go we think it beats the boring stuff – so relax, that can wait until tomorrow… We see our ‘Back to Reality Pack’ as the perfect end to the trip and a great final branding opportunity. Black Tomato offers this service at a ‘cost’ price of: £20pp
