#S77 BALTIC STORIES - Event tourism in the Baltic Sea Region based on stories, traditions and common cultural identity (BALTIC STORIES)

Policy Area Tourism – Reinforcing cohesiveness of the macro-region through tourism

Baltic Sea Region is not perceived as a common tourism destination and has difficulties to promote its rich and diverse cultural and natural heritage even among citizens of the Baltic countries themselves. In the view of these challenges, all recent studies are pointing out an increased competition between different destinations. In search for optimal positioning, events are becoming more and more important in the tourism development of destinations, attracting visitors, encouraging investments, improving image and boosting the local economy. The main idea of the project is to promote event tourism and attract more tourists from the Baltic countries and outside to Baltic destinations thanks to a large number of events organised across the Baltic Sea region.
