The Passport2Europe contest is brought to you thanks to…
The European Travel Commission (ETC) is a non-profit making organisation with its headquarters in Brussels. Its members are 33 National Tourism Organisations (NTO’s) of Europe. Central to ETC's strategy is to market and promote tourism to Europe in general, raising the awareness and interest of Europe as a tourist destination in long haul markets. ETC does this by initiating marketing activities to promote pan-European products and themes, which are complementary to the individual marketing actions of its members. For more information please visit www.etc-corporate.org
The ‘Europe – a never ending journey’ brand and the www.visiteurope.com portal are key instruments in building the awareness and effective promotion of ‘Destination Europe’, through a research led marketing strategy and coordinated cross-market approach.
‘Destination Europe 2020’ is an 18-month programme of activities that will be carried out with the support of the European Commission. The initiative will include a series of consultation and communication activities with the travel trade as well as the end consumers in the key long haul markets, the United States, Canada, Brazil and China. The main objective is to define a common long-term strategy to strengthen Europe’s competitive position and brand proposition in these source markets. One of the campaigns of this programme is the Passport 2 Europe competition which is part of the online strategy for the promotion of destination Europe 2020.
