European Cities Marketing announced new President

June 8, 2017
European Cities Marketing announced new President, Executive Committee and Board Members reflecting on strategic focus on City Marketing
ECM General Assembly last week saw the implementation of ECM Strategy 2017-2020 first steps, with the creation of an additional Vice-President position dedicated to City Marketing.
 
During ECM International Conference in Dubrovnik gathering 200 persons last week, Dieter Hardt-Stremayr (Graz, Austria) was elected the Association’s President for a duration of 2 years. The General Assembly also appointed Petra Stusek (Ljubljana, Slovenia) as Vice-President dedicated to Leisure & Tourism and Eduard Pieter Oud (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) as Vice-President dedicated to City Marketing.
 
The newly elected board members are as follows: Ignasi de Delàs (Barcelona, Spain), Bettina Reventlow-Mourier (Copenhagen, Denmark), Barbara Jamison (London, United Kingdom), Nicolas Lefebvre (Paris, France) and Marta Stawińska (Poznań, Poland).
Bettina Bunge (Dresden, Germany) pursues her role as Vice-President dedicated to the Meetings Industry and Philippe Vignon (Geneva, Switzerland) carries on with his role as Treasurer. Pier Paolo Mariotti (Bolzano, Italy), Erwin Van de Wiele (Ghent, Belgium) and Goran Pavlović (Opatija, Croatia) continue their mandates as ECM Board Members.
It’s a real honour for me to have been elected ECM President once again. It really shows the trust that ECM members have in me. But this responsibility is also a challenge considering the difficult times and the transformations that DMOs are facing. But I am convinced that our strategic approach focusing on city marketing and the balance between residents, business travellers and visitors will help our destinations in their holistic position to stand still. I am really thrilled to take part in this adventure.” said freshly elected ECM President, Dieter Hardt-Stremayr.

Mindfulness, interaction & common goals for TIC leaders – innovative ways to develop destination experience

October 31, 2016

Mindfulness, interaction & common goals for TIC leaders – innovative ways to develop destination experience

83 TIC managers and staff representing 49 leading European cities recently met in Dublin for the third edition of the TIC Expert Meeting to exchange knowledge and best practices on Tourist Information Centres (TIC).

The ECM TIC Expert Meeting is targeted to TIC managers and staff, whether they are ECM members or not. This initiative from European Cities Marketing (the only membership association strengthening city marketing in Europe with 100 cities onboard) is providing participants with an opportunity to improve their knowledge and also to share information on Tourist Information Centres with other destinations. For the third year in a row, the event was fully-booked showing once again the interest of TIC managers and staff in exchanging to improve their TICs.

Gabriela Schweinberger, International Business Coach and Consultant, hosted a workshop where attendees were divided into groups and given different problematic regarding TICs. This workshop was a platform for learning: attendees outlined common problems, goals and clients/visitors with nearly identical requirements. Together they searched for solutions and exchanged their experiences.

A panel discussion on mobile TICs (or itinerant TICs – Ed.) was also organised with Johanna Laxén, Tourist Information Advisor at Visit Helsinki and Federica Borini, TIC Coordinator at Turismo Torino e Provincia. Johanna described the mobile TIC system used during high season in Helsinki with staff walking around specific touristic areas providing maps and brochures to the tourists in need. While Federica explained that in Turin the mobile TIC system is used during events and volunteers help the tourists.

Last but not least, attendees were given the opportunity to work on personal development thanks to Buddhist monk Gelong Thubten who provided a masterclass on mindfulness. Did you know that you only need 10 minutes of meditation per day to feed your brain and it helps people overcome stress, develop greater mental focus and better interaction… which are important when you work in a TIC.

Richard Windischbacher, TIC Knowledge Group chairperson and TIC Manager at Graz Tourismus explained: “Tourist Information Centres are a source of inspiration for visitors in a city. The aim of our yearly event is to offer a mix of incentive and exchange opportunities for all the TIC experts’ attendees from large and small cities, from public and private organisations. The exchange of best practices, experience and know-how is the key to improve cities competitiveness. The TIC Expert Meeting allows attendees to benchmark themselves by learning about other TIC.”

The fourth edition of the TIC Expert Meeting will be held on October 26-27, 2017 in Budapest. Details will follow on European Cities Marketing website: www.europeancitiesmarketing.com

Apple Wine Festival 2016 | Frankfurt Tourism

August 11, 2016

Apple Wine Festival 2016 | Frankfurt Tourism
12th to 21st August 2016 in Frankfurt

Frankfurt’s apple wine culture has been playing an important role in the city’s social life for hundreds of years. Every year, locals and visitors come together in the Main metropolis to celebrate Frankfurt’s most popular beverage with their very own Apple Wine Festival, which is traditionally accompanied by a highly entertaining stage programme. Typical Frankfurt folklore and dialect poetry provide old-school entertainment for both the young and young at heart, while nearby Hessian cult bands get their audiences singing and dancing. Relaxed lounge music is also on offer, providing the perfect atmospheric background for enjoying an unconventional apple wine cocktail.

Many excellent types of apple wine are available for tasting at the festival’s numerous trendy booths and vintage stalls. Traditional apple wine made from time-honoured apple varieties is just as much a part of the offer range as are the trendy mixed blends and popular apple wine cocktails. Festival visitors will also find an excellent selection of apple wine merchandise on sale at the Roßmarkt, where the event is held. Those of you interested in taking back your very own apple wine “utensils” will find everything you need – from the typical ribbed apple wine glass to glass covers and, of course, the famous “bembel”, the blue-grey earthenware jug from which apple wine is traditionally served.

Hamburger Tourismusbranche freut sich auf das neue Wahrzeichen der Stadt

March 15, 2016

Hamburger Tourismusbranche freut sich auf das neue Wahrzeichen der Stadt:
Elbphilharmonie Hamburg eröffnet im Januar 2017

Hamburg, März 2016 (HHT) – Hamburg hat sich als eines der beliebtesten Städtereiseziele in Europa etabliert. Mit der Eröffnung der Elbphilharmonie Hamburg am 11. und 12. Januar 2017 bietet die Stadt einen neuen, einzigartigen Reiseanlass mit internationaler Strahlkraft. Auf der Internationalen Tourismusbörse (ITB) in Berlin präsentiert sich Hamburg als Kulturmetropole und stellt das einzigartige Konzerthaus der Reiseindustrie und den Fachmedien vor.

In der HafenCity Hamburg, zwischen dem UNESCO Weltkulturerbe Speicherstadt und dem Hafen, von jeher Herz und Motor der Stadt, steht die Elbphilharmonie Hamburg mit ihrer einzigartigen Architektur für das kontrastreiche und maritime Flair der Hafenstadt, die aus Tradition und Moderne mit Mut, Kreativität, Innovationsdenken und Weltoffenheit immer wieder ihre Zukunft erfolgreich neu formt.

Über dem ehemals als Tee-, Tabak- und Kakaolager genutzten Kaispeicher A schwingt sich heute eine schillernde Glasfassade bis zu 110 Meter hoch in den Himmel, um zum neuen Anziehungspunkt für alle Hamburger und Gäste zu werden. Drei Konzertsäle mit einem vielfältigen Musikprogramm, ein großer Musikvermittlungsbereich, die öffentliche Plaza, die den Besuchern auf 37 Metern einen überwältigenden Blick über die Stadt bietet, ein Hotel und Gastronomie werden in einem einzigartigen Gebäude vereint, wie es so nur in Hamburg möglich ist. „Das Fundament der Elbphilharmonie bilden das vielfältige kulturelle Leben in der Stadt und ihre lange Musiktradition. Die Elbphilharmonie wird ein offenes Haus für alle. Die öffentliche Plaza wird für alle Hamburger und ihre Gäste ein spektakulärer Ort der Begegnung, von dem man die Stadt in ihrer ganzen Vielfalt erfassen kann“, so Olaf Scholz, Erster Bürgermeister der Freien und Hansestadt Hamburg.

Impulsgeber für internationale Bekanntheit
Die Elbphilharmonie wird maßgeblich dazu beitragen, Hamburg weithin sichtbar zu machen und weltweit als Top-Ziel auf der touristischen Landkarte zu etablieren“, so Dr. Rolf Strittmatter, Geschäftsführer der Hamburg Tourismus GmbH. Darüber hinaus setzt die Hamburg Tourismus GmbH seit drei Jahren eine Internationalisierungsoffensive um, die die Servicequalität und Infrastruktur Hamburgs an die Bedürfnisse internationaler Gäste anpasst.

Konzerthaus mit klangüberwältigender Architektur
Nicht nur die beindruckende Silhouette begeistert internationale Gäste wie Hamburger – im Inneren überzeugt die Elbphilharmonie Hamburg mit klangüberwältigender Architektur. Im Herzen des Gebäudes liegt der Große Saal. Wie Weinbergterrassen sind 2100 Plätze um die zentrale Bühne angeordnet. Kein Zuhörer ist weiter als 30 Meter vom Dirigenten entfernt. Hierdurch entsteht eine intime Nähe zur Musik. Für die perfekte Akustik haben die Architekten gemeinsam mit dem Star-Akustiker Yasuhisa Toyota eine besondere Wand- und Deckenstruktur entwickelt – die Weiße Haut.

Der Große Saal wird Hamburgs vibrierender Klassikszene und Stars aus aller Welt eine spektakuläre Bühne bieten. Intendant Christoph Lieben-Seutter hebt den musikalischen Anspruch hervor: „Mit der Elbphilharmonie beginnt für die Musikstadt Hamburg eine neue Zeitrechnung. Das Konzertprogramm präsentiert die besten Künstler und Orchester aus aller Welt und bietet den Hamburger Orchestern eine internationale Plattform in der eigenen Stadt. Zielpublikum sind gleichermaßen die Hamburger Bürger und Gäste aus aller Welt. Angezogen von dem neuen architektonischen Wahrzeichen, finden sie hier vielfältige Anknüpfungspunkte für einen Konzertbesuch.

Ausblick: Positives Investitionsklima im Tourismus hält an
Dr. Rolf Strittmatter blickt optimistisch auf das Tourismusjahr 2016: „Wir gehen von einem Übernachtungswachstum von 3 bis 5 Prozent aus und peilen mehr als 13 Mio. Übernachtungen an.“ Neben neuen Reiseimpulsen und der Schärfung des Qualitätsprofils setzt Hamburg dafür auf einen weiteren Ausbau von Fluganbindungen. Spannende Konzepte bietet der wachsende Hamburger Hotelmarkt. So werden bis 2018 insgesamt 31 Hotelprojekte mit einem Investitionsvolumen von 1 Mrd. Euro realisiert. Darunter auch das mitten in der Elbphilharmonie gelegene Hotel Westin mit 244 Zimmern, das im November 2016 eröffnet
