“Xola has been growing slowly but steadily since we launched; each year we’ve added new people to the team to respond to what our clients most need,” said Heyniger. “For 2011 we’re looking at emphasizing marketing services to support entrepreneurs and emerging destinations. We’re connecting the longer-term policy and product development work with more immediate milestones for our clients – building awareness and educating travelers through public relations campaigns for new destinations is one great way to achieve that.”

Christina is a frequent public speaker at such events as World Travel Mart in London and the annual Adventure Travel Trade Association Summit, which will take place Oct. 17-20 in Chiapas, Mexico.
