Welcome to Tennessee Experts Europe!
As of August 2022, we are available in Berlin and in Bielefeld to promote your Tennessee products or services to European audiences: with a focus on PR, social media and events, and particularly in the German-speaking markets of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are not the representatives of the State of Tennessee, but a private enterprise. Tennessee Experts Europe is a division of Textransfer Communications.
Our expertise is based on very solid knowledge of Tennessee, a deep understanding of Europe, and particularly its media, with unparalleled experience and success in promoting Tennessee to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Tennessee is precious to us, and we hold a unique set of resources to help Tennessee being successful in Europe.
- We launched the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development (TDTD) office for German-speaking markets in 1996 and pride ourselves of contributing to Tennessee having had the strongest growth in international visitation of all U.S. states, prior to Covid. After us securing Tennessee's market presence during the Covid pandemic, our suggestions for a full relaunch for post-Covid times were not accepted by TDTD. After 26 years, TDTD contracted with a larger agency. We are not happy with that decision, and don't understand its rationale, but we certainly respect it and see potential in Tennessee Experts Europe assuming an even larger role than what we used to perform for the state. Tennessee Experts Europe complements the activities of the state by offering enhanced resources, qualifications and experience in Europe.
- As experienced and well-connected we are in tourism promotion, we would also consider work in other fields, particularly economic development or services to the media.
- Our media expertise encompasses more than 30 years of experience in PR, but goes beyond mere know-how. We also have the know-what and know-why. Founder and Owner Dr. Wolfgang Streitboerger holds a Ph. D. from Dortmund Technical University in Journalism (summa cum laude), and an MA in Journalism from Munich University. He is an adjunct professor in PR and journalism at Ostfalia University in Germany, who are at the forefront of training young, new PR professionals in the latest of the trade, and he teaches Communication regularly at Bryant University, a renowned business school in Rhode Island.
- We own a photo database of more than 1700 high-quality Tennessee images with proven effectiveness in promotions. We also own the rights to the wealth of all Tennessee-related copy ever produced by us.
- And we own sophisticated media databases carefully built and maintained by us. Our contacts to journalists and other media with an interest in and knowledge of Tennessee is an invaluable resource.
Just a small selection of services:
- Representation of Tennessee-based DMOs and attractions. We have been the German tourism representatives for Memphis Tourism since 2006.
- Projects for attractions and DMOs.
