KURTZ-AHLERS & ASSOCIATES TODAY
Representation and consulting for exceptional hotels, resorts, yachts, and destinations. We have been in business for years; it is our passion. We thrive in establishing partnerships that will bring in revenue and introduce unique products to a new market, a market where Kurtz-Ahlers & Associates already has long-standing relationships with savvy travel professionals who have a true appreciation for emerging destinations and exciting new travel experiences.
At Kurtz-Ahlers & Associates, we believe giving back is an integral part of the travel experience. Our programme, Going There, Giving Back®, enables us to make a donation to a charity in the country your clients are travelling to, a donation which will make a difference in the lives of many. Kurtz-Ahlers & Associates donates funds to the charity of choice from our list (which may be found on our website).
