Radio campaign

Five leading radio programmes are broadcast from various places in the Girona area to publicise the destination in the Catalan, Spanish and Italian markets.

The Patronat de Turisme has implemented a new initiative to promote and publicise the tourism offer of the Costa Brava and Pirineu de Girona destinations through a radio advertising campaign on stations in leading outbound tourism markets for the destination: Catalunya Ràdio, RNE (Spain), Radio Euskadi (Basque Country) and Radiolina (Sardinia).

The five radio programmes broadcast live from various places in the Girona area have featured local dignitaries (President of Girona Provincial Council and of the Patronat de Turisme, mayors, local councillors), writers and journalists, and businessmen and women from the tourism and restaurant sector, among others. These magazine shows have offered information on the social, cultural, political and economic issues currently affecting the local area, while highlighting the tourism attractions and values of the Girona destination.

Prior to each of the live broadcasts, the radio stations in question have announced the upcoming programme, mentioning and publicising the destination. The programmes have featured prize draws and special holiday break promotions in the area for listeners.
