Who We Are
We Connect Hospitality Oriented Businesses With Influential Audiences
We’re passionate about helping hospitality driven companies market to and connect with influential audiences that can impact their business. We leverage a variety of events, products and services to connect the right audience to our clients.
We were founded in 2001 by Tim O'Malley and Mike Magnusson and were formally known as "O'Malley Magnusson Publishing Group, LLC," makers of Concierge Preferred.
Our business relies on word-of-mouth and the relationships that we've built in partnership with Ateema over the years. We're really grateful to the concierges who have recommended Tortoise Supper Club to their guests.

In the past, we had tried digital ads and print marketing, but the ROI we received from your events was 400% more effective— It has been brick building results for us as a company

The concierge community is an important part of our business and we are grateful to the team at Ateema for helping us cultivate those relationships throughout the years.

Reach Visitors Closest To Your Business
“How do I get there” is the number one question at the concierge desk, which explains why maps are their most used tool. Make sure the visitors closest to your business see your business by putting an ad on the map used by your neighbor hotels.
Custom Content About Your Business
We create compelling articles and videos that make your business look outstanding. We then distribute that content through the channels that visitors choose to see it on, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and email in addition to the award winning Concierge Preferred Magazine.
Mobile Visitor Network
Place Your Ads On Chicago's Visitor's Phones
Target folks on their cell phones within specific geographic areas as small as a competitor's building, for example. We share a report that shows how many of your ads converted to people actually visiting your geographic location.
