On the leadership of MTÜ Lääne-Viru Tourism, the manors of Lahemaa are introducing themselves jointly to the international market.
Sagadi, Palmse and Vihula manors have a common historical and cultural background that can be exploited to increase the attractivness of the region including visitors from other countries. The aim of the campaign is to increase the availability of information regarding the leisure facilities in the region, increase the awareness of region and raise the number of tourists who are visiting the region. That will be done by using the channels of social media as well as print media, organizing the roadshows to resellers and journalists, participating with joint bids on the international tourism fairs.
There has been generated a common information channel www.facebook.com/lahemaamanors that shares the informaton about the three manors as well as opportunities for the region. Visitors to the region have been invited to share their holiday impressions of the Lahemaa. People who have signed up and also shared their experiences in Facebook between them will be entered into a prize draw to win a luxorious vacation for two persons in Lahemaa manors for three days.
