Our Work

A Snapshot of what we do

What They’re Saying

ETC managed the complicated nine-week Space Studies Programme with the upmost professionalism. They understood what we as hosts needed and what our visitors from 26 countries needed. They ensured a legacy of impact way beyond the programme itself. In a word - brilliant!

Niall SmithCIT

We outsourced the marketing for Kilkenny Group to ETC for a year while recruiting, and thereafter we worked with them on our PR. During this time, we found Niamh and her team to be extremely efficient and responsive to the business needs. Her creativity and energy was evident through the many successful campaigns she worked with us on and her work contributed greatly to our business in 2017. I would have no hesitation in recommending Niamh and her team to anyone

Marian O GormanCEO, Kilkenny Group

We have worked with ETC on the organisation, event management and publicity of Gradam Ceoil TG4 which has been held in Cork for the past few years. Damien, Niamh and the wider team have been utterly professional in their approach to, execution of and delivery of the above services. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any business seeking the services of an events and communications agency that will present their brand in an effective, professional and creative manner.

We outsourced the marketing function for The Nightmare Realm, Ireland’s largest scare house attraction in Cork and Dublin, to ETC in 2016. 2016 was a pivotal year for us and Niamh and Damien never gave us less than 100% commitment and blended seamlessly into our management team. Their input and advice were key to the success of the events. The fact that ETC is on board again for our 2017 Nightmare Realm and iceskating.ie events speaks for itself

ETC has always ensured the Cork International Choral Festival's profiling objectives are met from the beginning right throughout the process. ETC will continue to have our business as we pride ourselves on achieving KPI's, which is made easy with a partner like ETC. Would highly recommend this company for all your PR needs.

Niamh's expertise, enthusiasm, commitment and incredible attention to detail ensures she consistently delivers results on time, within budget and beyond expectations. She is highly professional and has the ability to work with people at all levels of an organisation. If you require someone who has the capability and passion for undertaking a project as her own from inception to conclusion then you need look no further

Lawrence OwensCEO Cork Business Association

ETC has managed a number of projects for the Cork Branch of the Irish Hotels Federation and also for us personally at Trigon Hotels and during this time we found them to be excellent to deal with. Their attention to detail is second to none. They have a huge amount of experience in tourism and marketing and would be an asset to anyone in the industry looking for expert advice and assistance.

Aaron MansworthChairman IHF Cork Branch, Group GM & Director of Trigon Hotels

It has been an absolute pleasure to have worked with Niamh as Editor of Go Wild Tourism magazines. Go Wild magazines have gone from strength to Strength under her guidance and she is the best person for creative ideas and creative inspiration. She opens opportunities in business and PR that other people cannot see.

Bobby PowerPublisher Go Wild Magazines

I was delighted with the professional service delivered by ETC during our Wind Energy Science Conference. They listened to our story and expertly packaged it in a media friendly manner. They then generated enormous interest and guided me through the many resulting interviews and engagements with local and national media.

It was fantastic to have access to ETC experienced supported during what could otherwise have been a very stressful time.

Damien’s work on developing Cork as a Mecca for traditional culture is deserving of the highest praise. Pulses of Tradition and the Lee Sessions have brought a vibrancy to our city that has been sadly lacking for some time. Well done!
