Concept and design development is often underestimated on the Nordic market, although time and time again experience shows that the most successful companies are those who have from the outset carefully considered both design and concept. We develop the basis for such design processes and offer our advice and assistance throughout, whether developing overall concepts and designs or single products and events.

We cover the entire service and hospitality industry from concept development of in-house café/restaurant solutions and catering concepts for companies, conferences and events to hotels.
Our experience and knowhow is unique in the industry.



Our concept development methodology is unique in the industry, allowing us to implement concepts from the very inception and assist from the side lines during startup. In other words, we help ensure that your ideas and visions are brought to fruition, including adapting them to the special requirements and expectations that may apply to Nordic markets.

Equally, we offer customisation of existing concepts prior to implementation to ensure as successful an implementation and startup as possible. Together, we define and tailor the assignment according to your wishes and needs.

We undertake or contribute to the development of concepts as well as adapt existing concepts to the Nordic market.

Our expertise includes establishing short-term and long-term success criteria, market knowledge and analysis, emerging trend analyses, market and price positioning, competitor and target group analyses, development of service tenders and assessment of service levels, development of USPs, proof of concept, preparation of SOPs, development of requirement specifications for hardware and software, development of FF&E and SOE definitions and descriptions as well as active support during startup.


Are you seeking to refurbish and/or reposition your hotel or restaurant?

Telling & Nesager delivers the essential expertise when refurbishing your hotel, including the management of tenders among construction consultants, interior designers and FF&E fulfilment specialists. Telling & Nesager also offers consultancy on the organisation and optimisation of the refurbishment project as well as on the minimisation of business disruption.


We also assist with the selection of a service provider that matches the concept, culture and strategy. Often it is economically advantageous to outsource a specific service, and our specialists offer unique knowledge of the industry within F&B regarding services for hotels and contract catering suppliers for in-house catering needs and events, fairs and conferences.
