The project manager will discuss requirements and ideas from inception to identify the most appropriate destination for your product and brand.
They will consider not only specific product and project requirements, but also take a wider industry view identifying geographic trends and ensuring there is no overlap with competing brands.
The project manager will work with the brand, creative consultants and ground teams to refine the brief and develop the concept into a workable itinerary which best meets the project needs.

BRAND CUSTOMER EVENTS
Yeti Cycles has a large following of dedicated customers known as ‘The Tribe’. Building this family of like-minded fans is hugely important to the brand.
Over the past 4 years Yeti Cycles has tasked H+I with creating the most awe-inspiring customer events in the world’s finest destinations.
In 2015 the first International Yeti Tribe Gathering saw 25 Yeti ‘freaks’ take to the Himalayas of Nepal. As a result of this hugely successful event gatherings have subsequently taken place in Chile & Patagonia, New Zealand and Scotland.
BRIEF DEVELOPMENT + SHOOT
Shimano’s marketing strategy for their latest XT Di2 electronic shifting system was to show it excelling in the most extreme riding conditions.
We identified the harsh environs of the Scottish Highlands as the ideal location and led the developments of the project brief with Anthill Films and facilitated all aspects of the video and photography shoot.
As expected, conditions were challenging but with expert production from the industry’s leading film-maker, the results speak for themselves.
As the leading brand in protective sports packs EVOC are design champions, requiring the highest quality media for their marketing.
For product brochure shoots they have repeatedly chosen H+I to identify the perfect locations and, critically, to ensure all in-country logistics are seamlessly managed.
From the depths of the Scottish wilderness to the ash slopes of one of the world’s highest active volcanoes, H+I has successfully delivered their projects in some of the most extreme environments.
FOX is one of the leading brands in mountain bike suspension and operates at the highest levels of the sport.
As mountain biking develops from a niche to mainstream sport, FOX has identified the need to develop a marketing approach focused more on product experience over technical detail.
We are now working closely with FOX producing high quality media and web content, helping to increase brand awareness to a wider and more diverse target audience.
For over a decade Matt Hunter has been pushing the boundaries of mountain biking in his work as a Specialized brand ambassador and most significantly in his ‘Trail Hunter’ film series.
In his latest film project we aided Matt in identifying the perfect regions and trails for him to express true adventure through his riding and organised all in-country logistics.
With fellow shredder and video supremo Matty Miles along for the ride the outcome is a wild and rugged visual feast.
