For my part, I have the pleasure of participating as a speaker on the third day of the congress. My participation will be in the form of conference in which I will describe the major mistakes in online communication who commit companies to try to make themselves known via the Internet, specifically analyze the communication of wine companies making wine. As I do in this kind of presentation, examples will offer as good and bad practices drawn from the websites of the attendees at registration indicating the URL of your website.

also participate moderating a round table where several wineries explain their experiences in wineThe pros and cons of offering, how they promote and how they have managed to combine the wine farm with wine. This roundtable seems especially interesting because in many cases is the lack of the necessary infrastructure and the lack of information on how to market this service, which makes a large part of the Spanish wineries do not take into account that the wine can be a good source of income, complementary and compatible with the traditional.

Congress promises to be very interesting and I'm sure I will learn a lot. Too bad I can not attend every day (I have days per half), but on February 3 see you there without fail.

Positive balance for tourism in France

Leo The echoes the bottom line for this summer is positive for tourism in France and tourist activities in our northern neighbor have been very positive in both July and August. (July Qualify as "honorable"And August as"even better greater satisfaction for professionals”).

Les Echos indicates that the good result is attributable to domestic tourism as the crisis has forced the French to perform proximity tourism and further divided outputs.CORSICA

Still, if we compare this summer with summer 2008, a 4% drop seen in overnight stays in France in general and 3% in Paris in particular. This is mainly due to the decline in the number of foreign tourists who have chosen France as a holiday destination. Prototurisme (The source of these data is cited by Les Echos) it indicates that foreign tourism is down 20% and bookings have come too late.

The article highlights the high number of tourists who visited Corsica (4% more than the previous year) due mainly to the arrival of tourists through the 3 airports that airlines are covered by "low cost".

Generally, tourists have reduced spending per person both in shops and restaurants ... which is otherwise normal as domestic tourism tends to make more cultural visits, not to settle in terraces of bars and souvenirs .

Anyway ... wait a few days and see our balance sheet to see what it is.
