Her strong tour operator, trade and travel agency relationships have helped to increase awareness for all our hotels in Canada.
It is a truly pleasure to work with Annika and her team and we look forward to a long lasting relationship!

VP SALES, MARKETING AND E-COMMERCE @ ELEGANT HOTELS GROUP

We have worked with Klint & Associates for the past five years. Klint & Associates took on the task of marketing Tranquility Bay Antigua to the Canadian travel market. I have been consistently impressed by their professionalism and performance towards their work. Klint & Associates interpersonal and communication skills have led to productive relationships with various tour companies, resulting in a much needed increase in occupancies for my company.
Ms. Annika Klint, the name principal of the company has demonstrated that she is quite competent in developing productive market relationships, thus improving the bottom-line. I highly recommend the services of Ms. Klint and her company.

CHAIRMAN @ TRANQUILITY BAY ANTIQUA

It has been a true pleasure working with Annika, who has us grown our Canadian business significantly over the past several years. Her professionalism and dedication to Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa is clearly demonstrated in her ability to successfully achieve the set goals of our organization.
We appreciate her enthusiasm and hard work in the Canadian market – her team is so passionate in what they do, which makes working with them such a great experience.

CEO @ STERLING HOSPITALITY

I have had the delight of working with Annika for over fifteen years. Initially, our relationship was as colleagues at one of Canada’s largest tour operators – now Thomas Cook Canada – where our roles as Vice Presidents with responsibility for marketing (wholesale and retail respectively) could so easily have been overly-competitive, but which in practice were mutually supportive.
Annika always puts the customer at the centre of all she does, with a single-minded focus that also leads her to some innovative out-of-the-box solutions to business challenges. Latterly I have worked with Annika as our respective organizations do business together and I value our on-going relationship greatly.
KAI is a first class marketing company and Annika is a class act: if you have an opportunity to work with her, grab it with both hands!

G.M. PASSENGER SALES CANADA @ AIR CANADA

MANAGER, REGIONAL SALES @ AIR CANADA

When Cuba Cruise first launched in 2011, one of our biggest challenges was to introduce a new, untested product to a very well-established marketplace. Everybody thought they knew what Cuba was, but we had something unique. We approached Annika Klint and her team at KAI to help us break down barriers and reach key decision makers at established Tour Operators large and small.
Annika and her team have been working in the Canadian tourism industry for many years, and their relationship network is very strong. They also see opportunity where others see difficulty, and were up for the challenge. They called on their contacts, found the right people, and very ably and persistently put this unique new product in front of buyers. For every concern expressed, they found a response that satisfied. When complications arose, she was quick and pragmatic in finding solutions and got results, building us a team of loyal sales partners.
Annika was not only successful, she was a delight to work with – optimistic and insightful, she consistently found the right way to get through the door and onto the agenda. If you are looking to build a marketing and sales presence in the Canadian tourism industry, I would not hesitate to suggest that Annika and her team deserve a close look.

PRESIDENT @ CUBA CRUISE

Our goal – to provide our clients with new, fresh, and cost-competitive options that deliver results.
