Champagne-Ardenne Launches on Facebook

Facebook ImageThe regional tourist board of Champagne-Ardenne is forging ahead with its digital media strategy with two brand new Facebook pages, one for the Champagne region and the other for the Ardennes.

The pages feature two ‘ambassadors’, Charlotte for Champagne and Adrien for the Ardennes, in a webseries of 16 episodes supported with their posts, giving visitors an insider’s view of the region with local knowledge.

Games and competitions are also planned on the Facebook page throughout the year.  See www.facebook.com/ardenneuk and www.facebook.com/champagnegb .

New for smartphone this year is an application with 14 audio mini-guides offering visitors another view of the region, covering landscapes, culture, gastronomy, nature, all on the move. The application can be downloaded from Itunes at the following link:
