The perception of tourism and hospitality around the globe is in constant movement and new consumer needs challenge traditional methods. It’s paramount to stay curious. To stay open. We believe that success is nothing more and nothing less than the admirable ability to work together. Move people, projects and ideas – and share a vision.
Let’s start a conversation. Ask the questions. Be mindful of the past, present and future. What shaped your business, what drives you and what legacy do you want to leave behind? How can we be visionaries?
Our passion is to drive collaborative developments within diverse teams and groups – en route to explore the unexplored. We help leverage individual potential and assets, proactively connecting and guiding them through a structured process of co-development.
We want to inspire discovery and development within the tourism and hospitality industry. Let’s aim to explore the unexplored. Together.

The Co-Development Concept includes a toolkit. The Co-Development Toolkit is tailored to lead diverse groups and teams through the process of discovery, creation, and completion of innovative products, offers or services. The Toolkit is just as well suited for improving existing products, and the tools can even be combined in different ways according to the need.
The Co-Development Toolkit is divided into 5 modules. Combined they give you a complete framework to cover all aspects of the development process.
Each module consists of hands-on tools and exercises. They all contribute to a coherent step-by-step process making progress easy.

A crucial factor in developing a destination is to have tourism businesses (and preferably non-tourism professionals as well) commit and participate. Help shape the destination brand and develop offers that matches the brand and the ever-changing market.
The Co-Development Concept is ideal for this. We can facilitate a series of workshops implementing all our modules for a full exploration of collaborative business development. Or you could kick off destination collaboration with workshops based on our module 1 and 2: Making professionals get to know each other and explore their joint capabilities; And getting a common understanding of the customers and how to meet their needs.
The Co-Development Concept is structured for collaboration. You can benefit from it if you would like to explore the business potential of making different departments and competences in your company work together. Or perhaps you would like to explore the business potential of collaborating with other companies in the same town or area or with the same mission and vision as you.
The Co-Development Concept can help you make this happen with a facilitated process, hands on tools, and dynamic interaction.
No matter where you’re from, it could be a hotel or an attraction, we would be happy to tailor a process for you.
New networking and collaboration need a good start. A facilitated event using a few of the tools and exercises from the Co-Development Toolkit module 1 can give you just that. The benefits of a 3-6 hours workshop would be:
