Webinar: Tips for Planning Your Content Calendar In Uncertain Times


On Wednesday April 28 at 2PM (CET), we will host a webinar as part of the “Power of Community” communication series.

As the world begins to open up, many destination marketers are faced with the challenge of planning their marketing strategy amid the uncertainty.
What kind of content will speak best to visitors right now? How can you keep your locals engaged? And how are other destination marketers staying agile when it comes to content planning?

In this workshop, we’ll teach you how to save time and plan smarter when it comes to every stage of your content process—from planning to sourcing and publishing.

We’ll cover:
– How to stay top of mind with visitors while safely promoting the city to locals
– Ways to source visual content you can repurpose across your marketing channels
– Strategies to stay flexible and agile when thinking about your 2021 content calendar

ECM & DTTT Trend Chat - "The Future of Urban Tourism"

ECM & DTTT Trend Chat – “The Future of Urban Tourism”


The Monthly Trends Chats are regular live catch-ups for the members of the DTTT Community. This month, ECM & the DTTT partnered up to bring you a discussion on one of the most debated topics in the industry: The Future of Urban Tourism. The Trends Chat will take place on April 29 at 16:00 (CET).


What is the future of Urban Destinations?

For this live event, we will explore the opportunities to innovate and recover for urban destinations, bringing to you the diverse perspectives of different but equally thriving destinations. We foresee a very exciting discussion aimed at trying to define where city tourism is heading.

If you expect to simply take away a list of ingredients to drive recovery, we have to warn you, this call won’t give you that: there’s more! We want to challenge the view of ECM and DTTT Members through a very thought-provoking and forward-looking debate.
