As one of the longest standing UK trade representatives for luxury Caribbean hotels, Essential Detail announces a merger with Brave Marketing Solutions, effective 01 November 2019.
The team will expand with 4 new sales and marketing specialists including regional Sales & Marketing Managers toprovide more regular, dedicated support for the company’s trade partner tour operators and key travel agents throughout the UK.

I look forward to rekindling past relationships and making new friends.”
