As Europeans were getting ready to travel again in the summer of 2021, ETC conceived, developed and implemented the campaign #OpenUpToEurope, a pan-European awareness-raising campaign with the objective to reinforce consumer confidence and stimulate pent-up demand for travel.
The campaign, led by ETC and co-funded by the European Union with the support of more than 30 destinations and travel brands, was steadily rolled out across 13 European outbound travel markets as restrictions were eased and countries opened up to visitors again.
As part of the campaign, ETC and partners developed the microsite OpenUpToEurope.eu which served as a one-stop-shop for those considering their travel plans for summer 2021. It included the latest updates and information about travel experiences that consumers could enjoy in Europe with a focus on nature, culture and gastronomic experiences. The microsite also offered practical tips and advice about how to travel in Europe, including important information about the EU Digital COVID Certificate and the European Tourism Covid-19 Safety Seal.
The multi-channel digital campaign ran throughout the whole summer and reached over 30 million travel intenders across Europe.
Get involved in the #OpenUpToEurope campaign with free-to-use downloadable materials, toolkits and more great assets.
