Who We Are

Twenty31 is a new breed of consultancy that harnesses the power of strategy, communications, research and technology.

Over the next 15 years, global tourism will undergo unprecedented growth. With that growth will come massive change.
There will be winners and losers. Competition for travellers will intensify as will attention for capital, air routes, infrastructure
and investment. Traditional marketing channels will disrupt at an even faster pace. Yet getting the fundamentals of tourism — uniquely defining tourism for destinations — will be critical to succeeding and getting more than their fair, but sustainable share.


WHAT WE DO

Twenty31 partners with tourism leaders to help them navigate the next 15 years,
creating a unique competitive position and developing a strategic blueprint for their future.

TOURISM. DEFINED.

Twenty31 defines change. Few industries outside of entertainment and broadcast
have been impacted more by disruption enabled through digital technologies.


OUR WORK

We advise national and regional destinations, governments, hotel groups, convention centres, attractions and airlines
seeking to define and then leverage their competitive strengths to attain more than their fair and sustainable share of tourism growth, expected to double by 2031. We have worked with destinations around the globe including Australia, Banff Lake Louise,  Beijing,  Calgary, Canada, Dubai, Ireland, Nepal, Palau, Toronto, Victoria and many others.
