2. “Neamţ Land” – European Destination of Excellence

Neamţ County has become a member of the European Destination Network of Excellence – EDEN, in August 2018.

The EDEN project – European Destinations of Excellence AISBL – was launched by the European Commission and the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW) in 2006. Being an international non-for-profit association, the EDEN Network aims to become one of the most important contributor in consolidating the image and profile of Europe as a collection of sustainable and high-quality tourist destinations.

The main objectives of the Association are to increase the visibility of non-traditional destinations, to raise awareness of the diversity and quality of the European tourist offer, to reduce seasonality, to develop sustainable tourism and to encourage collaboration between destinations.

Neamţ County ranked fourth in 2008 for the theme “Tourism and local intangible heritage”, and fourth place in 2015 for the theme “Local tourism and Gastronomy” in the annual competitions organized by the national tourism authorities of each state participating in the project, being designated “European Destination of Excellence”, which later gave our county the right to register, as a member, in the EDEN Network.

Neamţ County hosted the 13th EDEN Network Meeting in Piatra Neamţ, between 10th -12th of April, 2019. 85 attendants (representatives of the EDEN destination, as well as representatives of the European Commission and national tourism authorities) from Serbia, Belgium, Ireland, Austria, Latvia, Slovenia, Malta, Portugal, Croatia, Italy, United Kingdom, Finland, Turkey, Poland, and Romania participated at the event, which was co-organized by the European Commission (DG GROW and the Executive Agency EASME) in cooperation with the EDEN Network Association AISBL, the Ministry of Tourism of Romania and Neamţ County Council.

The inclusion of Neamţ County in the elite of European tourist destinations represents an important stepping-stone for noticeably increasing the tourist attractiveness of Neamţ County, with its places full of beauty and legend, numerous historical monuments and monastic settlements, surprising festivals and celebrations over the year, and, last but not least, the traditional customs, traditions and crafts, impeccably preserved. Being a member of the EDEN Network provides free and easy access to various projects and contests initiated by the European Travel Commission, since the EDEN Network has established a long-term strategic partnership with the European Commission to promote Europe as a tourist destination.

The receptivity of the foreign tourists towards “Neamţ Land” has significantly gained ground since Neamţ County had joined the EDEN Network, as highlighted by the conclusions of several marketing researches conducted by European Best Destinations.

The official page of the EDEN Network, Your EDEN Experience, promotes the most attractive European tourist destinations to millions of travelers, mass-media and professionals in the field. The featured content on Your EDEN Experience page displays the tourist potential of Neamţ County to millions of travelers, influencers, media and tourism specialist all over the world. In 2021, Your EDEN Experience was the most visited website dedicated to sustainable tourism in Europe, for 10 consecutive years. Not to mention the high exposure of EDEN destinations in national newspapers, specialized press, blogs, tourism sites, television and social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest), but also in prestigious global publications (Forbes, Conde Nast, Lonely Planet , El Mundo, Vogue, Travel, Leisure, Euronews, Daily Mail etc …) and more.

Thanks to its innovative communication techniques in the virtual environment, European Best Destinations plays an important role in promoting European destinations, even those destinations less known to the public. The platform has become a meeting place for travel agents, travelers and tourist professionals, constantly evaluating and revealing the most attractive destinations through its website and social networks (in 2021, there were over 6 million visitors and thousands of followers on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and over 80 million euros invested in media coverage).

According “My EDEN Destination 2021” report, published in December 2021, Neamţ County still occupies the first place in the ranking of YouTube videos watched and also hits favorable positions in terms of page views for www.visitneamt.com, and page views and followers for our Facebook page.

4. Video Storytelling about Neamţ County

You Tube is the 2nd most popular social network in the world, after Facebook. It was scientifically proved that our brains processes visual information 60,000 times faster than words, and one minute of video is considered equivalent to around 1.8 million words.

In tourism in particular, stories make for better marketing because they elicit emotion. They can influence what holiday destination we choose, what service providers to trust, play on our nostalgia, and help us make sense of complex information. A really good video content can communicate the entire character of a tourist destination in less than two minutes, and clever images can be especially persuasive.

In order to considerably increase the visibility of Neamţ County as a tourist destination and to highlight those elements that differentiate and add attractiveness to Neamţ County, Neamţ County Council signed a contract for video production, consisting in creating a tourist promotion film about Neamţ County and six short clips, representative of the most known tourist objectives in the county.

The services were contracted in June 2019, and now all the twelve short promotional clips are available for wide audiences. You can catch a glimpse of the videos by clicking the links below:
