One hour away from you
is the first campaign performed to attract tourism off seasonality in the UK beyond the summer season. The objective of this initiative is to promote Corunna´s position as a destination within the British market and strengthen existing ties with the United Kingdom.  

The digital nature of this campaign marks a beginning in the use of new technologies by Turismo da Coruña that from now will increase its presence in social networks, since most of the tourists access to their vacation destination via internet. On this occasion two aspects have been taken into account: on one hand, the profiles that are targeted in the campaign (families, youth, couples...) and secondly, the fact that Corunna is only an hour away  from London.    

This initiative is part of the Plan to Promote Tourism Product (PDPT) in the metropolitan area and has a budget of 27,730 Euros.
