The Faroe Islands are a very special destination and as such also leading when it comes to making themselves known to the world! One recent campaign of the islands “closing for maintenance” showed once more the huge interest in the destination – seeking 100 volunteers to help with projects that needed repair or other attendance. The Prime Minister of the Faroe Island, Aksel v. Johannesen directly supported the “closed for maintenance” campaign, which was “sold out” in no time, in a short video
Visit Faroe Islands plans a campaign with their local ambassadors to promote the knowledge clusters on the islands to relate with organisers of international meetings in their space. Despite being a small community, many companies and organisations established on the Faroe Islands excel in their fields – like medical / health, sport events, all topics “marine” like fishery, marine technology and start-ups, gastronomy. Also Faroese telecommunication with it’s visionary projects plays a major role and helps the islands being #SoConnected.
Stay alert and make sure to set up a meeting with Annleyg Lamhauge, responsible for MICE in Visit Faroe Islands, at IMEX in Frankfurt where they will be exhibiting.
You can still register for IMEX as a hosted buyer in the tmf dialogue group! We look forward to introducing the special expertise on the islands to you and connect you with the key stakeholders.
