13.45 Shared historical roots are a natural focal point for large scale events. Viking history and culture offers a highly recognizable and attractive setting for such events. A large scale event or celebration could benefit from marketing efforts targeted at twin towns.
The group should discuss how to work this task out, how, where, what, whom and how often.
- Supply the respective twin town with printed material, such as brochures?
- Digital promotion?
- Twin town card, a discount voucher of sorts?
- Other ideas?
