Terres CHECK-IN reviews
The director of the Terres Travel Festival and co-organizer of the Terres CHECK-IN Awards, Santi Valldepérez, has assured: “Video ends up being an unbeatable prescriber. Nothing can replace the user experience, it is obvious, but the video has a capacity to move that can be decisive when it comes to installing an accommodation or a tourist service in the top of mind of the future traveler.”
For her part, the president and CEO of the CETT, Dr. Maria Abellanet i Meya, expressed her satisfaction that the Hotel Alimara, of the CETT Group, has hosted the Terres CHECK-IN Awards: “It is an honor and also the confirmation that the bet that the CETT made at the time for the tourism and audiovisual binomial at the time was a success. More than a decade ago it was an emerging tourism model and now we can already speak of a consolidated and quality model”.
Lastly, Pere Cabañas, vice president of the Climent Guitart Foundation, stressed the importance of proposals such as this one: “We give the sector an opportunity to share audiovisual content and generate synergies. We predict a long journey to Terres CHECK-IN, because it is a unique showcase in the world”.
Space for knowledge of the audiovisual of ‘hospitality’
The proposal of the Terres CHECK-IN International Hospitality Film Awards festival was born with the desire to create community and connect the various actors that make up the hospitality industry on an international scale. Thus, the aim is to create a space for knowledge, exchange and communication trends that can be transferred to the sector in order to improve the experience at a time when tourism audiovisuals have reached a point of great maturity. Terres CHECK-IN aims to be the world benchmark in the audiovisual field of the hospitality sector and to be the showcase of the marketing trends of the organizations that make up the tourism, hospitality and gastronomy industry. The Terres CHECK-IN will be the gateway to the Terres Travel Festival, which will hold its professional sessions between September 8 and 9 in Tortosa.
