CatalunyaExperience, a new way to promote Tourism through Instagram

..

Last week end, our team of @IgersCatalonia organized a wonderful trip for 11 Instagramers through Catalunya beautiful landscape (Catalonia). The team was invited by the Catalan Board of Tourism in view to promote the region as a main tourist destination in Europe. The #CatalunyaExperience turned to be the really first time Instagram is used as platform for promotion of Tourism.

During all the week end, our lovely team posted pics about their adventures. Trekking, Biking, Flying in a Balloon or in Helicopter were just some of the many activities included in our busy week end planned by our hosts.

In the pic, the team of 11 Instagramers who promoted the tourism in Catalonia through a great trip and photos in Instagram tagged with the #CatalunyaExperience hashtag. The team was composed by @timbrado (France) @goldie77 (Germany) @ria (Norway) @ilarysgrill (Italia) @herbertschroer (The Netherlands) @monikaurrutia (Catalunya, Spain), @chrisozer (U.S.A) @auroramichavila (Madrid, Spain), @kainxs from (Alicante, Spain) @julioestrela (Catalunya, Spain) and finally me, @philgonzalez founder of @Igers (Instagramers Network).

As a lucky participant in this amazing journey, I want to personally thank the entire team The Barcelona Football Club, the Agencia Catalana de Tourism and Qatar Fundation. Without forgeting our fabulous @martaar and @mery_tweety from Instagramers Catalonia by the level of organization and quality of the proposed activities.

  1. Hi Phil!

    Great article! What an amazing trip it was.

    Only “(in the right side,pics by @kainxs @timbrado @chrisozer and @herbertschroer )” isn’t right. I think there’s only one from @timbrado in there.
