Marketing for your area

Each municipality, region or area has its own unique story. This story is the basis for attracting visitors, entrepreneurs and residents. But how do you tackle this? How do you make sure you tell the right story to put your municipality, region or area on the map?

Our founder Frits Huffnagel has extensive experience as an alderman and city marketing expert in putting cities, areas and projects on the map. Castro helps both municipalities, regions and project developers (including real estate) with city marketing.

Gilat Foundation | Communications

Making children in hospitals forget for a moment that they are sick. That is the goal of Gilat Foundation, interactive theater for children in academic children's hospitals. Almost immediately after Castro Communicatie started in 2019, we started helping Stichting Gilat with their communications. The foundation is now active in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, Nijmegen and on Curaçao.

"Gilat Foundation has the dream of providing interactive theater to all sick children in the Netherlands and in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom. Castro has been very involved in helping us for years with contacts with the government and putting our foundation well on the map."

Jair Eisenmann | Chairman Gilat Foundation

SpiritsNL | Communications & Lobby

SpiritsNL is the trade association of spirits producers, with members such as A Brand New Day, Lucas Bols and Hooghoudt. Since 2021, we have been supporting SpiritsNL with their communications, especially aimed at political-administrative stakeholders.

"Castro has been successfully helping us with communications and campaigns for several years. They have the right knowledge and expertise to get our message across. Our plea in particular not to increase alcohol taxes (then even more consumers will buy abroad) made the national media and led to a proposed increase being partially reversed."

Betty de Boer | Director SpiritsNL

ENERGYNEST | Communications

ENERGYNEST is a Norwegian energy company that uses heat storage to help make industry more sustainable. It engaged Castro to become better known and networked in the Netherlands:

"ENERGYNEST accelerates the energy transition of industry with thermal storage and renewable heat. Since 2023, we have also been active in the Netherlands. Castro helps us to become known in the Netherlands. They do that with a lot of knowledge of the energy sector and a strong network with the media and government. Thank you!"
