CommunicationsPoint Limited was founded in 2002 as a PR/Marketing/Communications consultancy for the hospitality and tourism industry. Since then, it has branched out into arts and charity communications, adding FundraisingPoint as a legal branch in 2015.
Julian Demetriadi started his career in the hotel industry and became the specialist writer/journalist on The Catering Times. He went on to edit Hospitality magazine and manage the public relations for the industry’s professional body – Hotel & Catering International Management Association, and in 2006/7 managed the PR for the Association’s successful change of name to the Institute of Hospitality.
Julian was responsible for the PR for the highly successful, Government-backed Institute of Hospitality’s ‘Hospitable Climates’ sustainability awareness campaign, aimed at the UK hospitality industry. He went on to be the media consultant to the Considerate Hoteliers Association.
CommunicationsPoint was a key player in the acclaimed new image for the British Association of Hospitality Accountants (BAHA), which became HOSPA – the Hospitality Association for Finance, Revenue Management and IT Professionals. In the same year, the consultancy played a major role in promotion work for the re-opening of Blanch House – Brighton’s original boutique hotel.
In 2013, Julian founded and became Chairman of the Salisbury Fringe: bite-sized plays and monologues in pubs and cafes, written by new local writers and performed by professional actors.
More recently, he has been doing historical research and writing projects for the Dublin-based Mission to End Leprosy, and is communications consultant for the Farley Music Festival in Wiltshire, England.
