MEMBERS

SO MUCH DIVERSITY UNITED BY A COMMON GOAL

Our members are Tourist Boards, Convention Bureaux and City Marketing Organisations represented by their CEOs, managers and their best experts.

ECM is committed to give equal benefit and profile to members from capital, leading and smaller European cities.
While keeping its focus on cities, European Cities Marketing proposes National Tourist Boards, National Convention Bureaux and Regional entities (whether it refers to Leisure, Meetings Industry or City Marketing) to tackle this perspective by establishing permanent contact and working together with cities, one of the basis to enhance national business.

European Cities Marketing is the only organisation to work with Leisure, Meetings Industry and City Marketing. We believe in the vision that “everyone in the city sells the city”.
