Cititravel inks deal with Quintessential Productions’ founder Scott Ashton

In an effort to better serve the growing number of international corporate clients that require the highest level of technical and event production expertise in Spain and Portugal, Cititravel DMC has reached an agreement with creative event producer Scott Ashton, founder of Quintessential Productions.

Quintessential Productions ES will operate independently from Cititravel but will service clients via the DMC’s multiple offices in Spain and Portugal. When a client requires the services of both Cititravel and Q Productions ES, the companies will collaborate to deliver a comprehensive and high quality solution designed to fulfill and exceed expectations.

Ashton brings nearly 25 years of international production and event experience to Cititravel. He founded Q Productions in 2000 while working with some of the world’s leading and most demanding brands in Europe, the U.S. and Asia. His expansion into Spain and Portugal, with the support of Cititravel DMC, will permit clients to source all production equipment, supplies and services directly.

“I am delighted that we have managed to pull together what I am sure is going to be a very successful partnership between Quintessential Productions and Cititravel DMC. Quintessential UK has a track record of producing world class events for leading agencies and corporate clients including Grass Roots, Toyota, SONY, Yahoo!, etc. Cititravel has been delivering logistical, venue and accommodation solutions throughout Spain and Portugal to the highest standard for over quarter of a century” stated Ashton. “Quintessential Productions ES with the support and backing of Cititravel DMC offers an unbeatable solution to delivering our clients even higher levels of service.”

Ashton is known for his work on large-scale theme-intensive productions, including world concert tours, corporate conferences and product launches where he has travelled the world producing events throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, Middle East and elsewhere. Now based in Spain he is ideally placed to use this background to establish the new Spanish company in the quickest time possible.


Cititravel Managing Director Carlos Charters said: “We are delighted to be able to add another product to our range of services. We have recognized over the years that many of our agency and corporate clients prefer to source production requirements in their home country and bring material to Spain. By working with Scott we hope to be able to offer the highest level of expertise and equipment via a Spanish company thus offering a genuinely comparable product along with the cost savings that keenly negotiated local sourcing can achieve”
