Travelling in Europe SMARTguide
INFORMATION AND IDEAS FOR TRAVEL AND TOURISM PROFESSIONALS
In this publication, we have attempted to bring together the key elements that may be used as planning support for you, the travel professional from anywhere around the globe. It aims to give you a firm overview of the ongoing evolution of Europe’s transport infrastructure, as well as a number of new ideas and initiatives, which we believe will result in improved planning for better targeted, or
more “intelligent” future itineraries.
Capitalising on the success of the EuroShorts Film Competition in 2013, we launched the My EuroShorts 2014 follow-up edition. This time all travellers from around the globe visiting Europe were invited to submit a short video about their personal journey showing what a unique, interesting or just pure fun time they had.
From a range of submissions from all 6 continents, “Le Cose da Fare” by Andrea Venditti was the best short film selected by a professional jury and public voting.
Check out the video compilation with all submissions. Thanks to all the participants!
Roll the Dice
The “Roll the Dice” campaign follows up on the invented board game developed for the EuroShorts Film Competition.
The campaign aims to educate, motivate and engage users to discover Europe as the most diverse travel destinations worldwide.
"Roll the Dice" in an online board game developed as a multiplatform application with strong focus on social media. Game players can create the perfect itinerary by answering quiz question about European destinations in a very entertaining way and share their travel experience with friends by sending funny postcards via different social media channels. The result is that these pan-European routes will inspire players and drive them to real action in Europe.
In summer 2013, ETC invited filmmakers across Europe to submit their ideas for creating a new inspirational video to promote Europe as a tourism destination. From a range of superb applications, ‘Rolli the Dice’ by Benoit & Detalle & Marija Jacimovic was the winning pitch.
Based on an invented board travel game, the film sees the two protagonists' journey through Europe as they roll the dice at every step of the way to determine where they will go next.
Get inspired by Europe
The “VisitEurope App” aims to lead users through the overall experience of the trip planning; from the initial inspiration phase through the research stage and finally the booking.
The interactive application allows users to easily discover the range of destinations and experiences that Europe has to offer by browsing high quality images, videos and user generated content in an interactive map. Besides searching for trip destinations, users are given the opportunity to plan their itinerary and directly book their flights, accommodation and various activities at the selected destinations. In addition, the “VisitEurope App” is supplemented with Facebook inclusion to provide personalised recommendations and enabling users to share their most inspiring images and itineraries on the social network.
The “VisitEurope App” is designed as both a tablet app for the iPad and a website optimised for any mobile device. Available globally, the application is optimised at an initial stage for the Americas, including Brazil Argentina, Chile, the US and Canada, where it is possible to compute the price of a long-haul flight to Europe.
