See you at Stand 136 in Hall 6.1!
As always, we’ll have a stand in the eTravel World in Hall 6.1. Our stand number is 136 and we invite you all to pop by to say hello and to share what’s new with you. The stand is intended to be a space for travel bloggers and marketing/PR executives to meet, or to relax and have a cup of coffee. We are thrilled to have Emilia Romagna Tourism as the supporter of our stand this year!
We’re sharing the stand with our long-running partner TravelDudes, and their team has actually written up a useful guide to ITB which is a must-read for anybody new to ITB, or anyone who wants to know which events and sessions they shouldn’t miss, like the ITB Speed Networking.
In addition to being a networking spot, the stand will be utilised to promote the Blogville Network, an exciting project to nurture cross-border collaborations among tourism boards. With the Blogville Network, iambassador takes its relationship with Emilia Romagna Tourism to the next level after working together on the successful BlogVille campaign (this year marks the 6th edition). This relationship has created new models for collaborations between digital influencers and DMOs, for instance, co-branded content such as eBooks and informational websites (such as the new MotorValley website), and the EuroFoodTrip project, a collaboration between Emilia Romagna Tourism and Costa Brava Tourism. The Blogville Network aims to work on new concepts and tourism products at a cross-border level by encouraging ‘co-opetition‘ rather than ‘competition’ among tourism destinations. DMOs are invited to drop by the stand for more information about the Blogville Network.
