NEW YORK, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Finn Partners has been contracted for public relations by EKOS, an Ecuadorian publishing and communication company, in support of Ecuador's International Communication Campaign directed at the trade industry by the Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador. The new assignment is part of the country's recently launched "All you Need is Ecuador" worldwide marketing campaign and will target consumers and travel trade in more than 14 countries worldwide in North and South America, Europe and Asia.
"We're delighted to be supporting Ecuador's continued popularity as an exciting and diverse cultural destination," said Gail Moaney, managing partner and Travel/Lifestyle Director at Finn Partners. "Our expanding network of global offices and affiliates are collaborating on this account to develop creative programs that deliver the best possible results."
Ecuador's newly appointed Minister of Tourism, Sandra Naranjo, recently underscored her commitment to enhancing the country's potential for tourism, including planning and investing in the industry as well as improving tourism services. According to the Ministry of Tourism, visits to Ecuador grew by 5% (five percent) in 2013, and by 16% (sixteen percent) midway through 2014. The country expects to receive some 1.6 million tourists by year's end.
To support Ecuador's rise as a sought-after international tourism destination, Finn will implement a series of media relations strategies to build awareness of its rich cultural and geographic diversity by focusing on the country's "Four Worlds" – the Galapagos, the Amazon, the Pacific Coast and the Andes. Each region is distinctly different, offering its own exotic travel experiences.
