    It's not true that you learn something new everyday (unless you're 3 perhaps). But today I learned something I didn't know. I found out that Expedia Canada makes it easy for Toronto Blue Jays fans to buy flight and hotel packages to go see the Jays play games away from home. I love baseball. Not like a big, big, fan, but enough, that I try to go to at least 2 or 3 games every year. Baseball's atmosphere is very different than the atmosphere at hockey, football or basketball games. Those who don't understand/like the game may think it's boring, but they'd be wrong. Maybe the game could be a…

  • Why broadband is vital to growth of the cruise industry

    Special Nodes
    17 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Executives at the major cruise lines all seem to have one question on their mind. “How can we convince people who have never cruised before to try a cruise?” NB: This is an analysis by Faraz Qureshi, general manager at Cruiseline. While cruises have grown in popularity, they are still only a sliver of the vacation market. CLIA reports about 3% of North Americans took a cruise last year and only about 20% have ever taken a cruise. The potential market of cruise rookies is vastly larger than that of experienced cruisers. Additionally, executives know that once rookies experience a…

Reporting a 9% decrease to revenue of $36.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the deals publisher says it expects to invest $1 million more quarter-on-quarter depending on the performance of the business.

    Indian OTA Cleartrip has pulled out of internet.org, the Facebook-run initiative designed to make internet access more widely available around the world. Net neutrality campaigners in India have argued that internet.org threatens online freedoms because, while it is free for anyone with a connection, the sites which can be accessed are limited. The app, through which the prescribed sites are accessed, is also only available via the Reliance network, one of India’s biggest telecoms providers. There are also concerns that internet.org – and similar services – is a Trojan horse…
  • What are travellers saying when they use social media at airports? [INFOGRAPHIC]

    Kevin May
    17 Apr 2015 | 2:00 am
    Many passengers have their heads buried in a device or laptop as they wander around or wait at an airport. Frequently they are browsing or updating their social media channels – but is it to rant about delays, show off that they are heading away somewhere or just adding to the general noise of Twitter, Facebook et al? Geofeedia analysed hundreds of thousands of tweets and updates to establish what people are doing on those social channels at four major airports in the US (Los Angeles LAX, New York JFK, Dallas-Fort Worth and Chicago O’Hare).

    Had a good business lunch last Tuesday and "discovered" Vertical, the Italian cuisine restaurant at First Canadian Place in the heart of Toronto's Financial District. Vertical has been around for a long time, but I had never eaten there. Maybe because I don't work near or around the financial district. I had heard about the restaurant and it was on my radar because Italian food is my favorite. Since I had to find a resto that was centrally located to meet my business lunch friend, I took the opportunity.And Vertical did not disappoint. DECORThe decor is elegant and business…

  • How Does Wayfinding Support Place Branding? PART ONE

    Bill Baker
    15 Apr 2015 | 11:16 am
    The primary function of wayfinding is to guide people to places. It has a vital role to play in connecting the physical environment of the destination with the needs and emotions of visitors (as well as residents) who want to be stimulated, entertained, educated and challenged. It should help them recall branded communications that they may have been exposed to before arriving in the area. Wayfinding is important to brand building because it recognizes that our brains respond emotionally first, then logically. In addition to offering ease of navigation, a branded wayfinding system can provide…

    Last week I was reminded of the fragility of place brands and how they need to foster deep community roots from the start of their brand planning process. The marketing manager of a small destination marketing organization (DMO) told me that his city had completed a brand strategy during the past two years which had been well received. But with the arrival of a new Executive Director, they had abandoned the strategy. Fortunately, this was not one of our clients. This discussion brought home to me that from time to time pivotal people who are essential to the vitality of a destination brand…

On the surface, you probably wouldn’t think of including the two in the same sentence, but the reality is that many of their simple branding principles have a lot in common.  They both created worlds, places and destinations of their own. Some of the points of commonality include the use of: - Aspirational benefits- Celebrity endorsements- Emotional benefits-…

    The question as to whether place branding needs a rebrand because of the misunderstandings that surround it at times was recently posed to me by Samantha North in an interview for PlacesBrands. “I agree with the sentiment that there are many misunderstandings relating to the branding of places. I also think it’s true that far too many places start out with the idea of branding but mistakenly have a narrow view of what branding is. They do not fully engage it as a powerful strategic guidance system. Many set out on their brand journey only when they think it’s time for a new look or a…

    So I said to myself “Crap, I just wrote an article on where to find a great burger in Bucharest, and what I feel that did was lead me to a place that makes a better burger”. Well, I suppose at the end of the day there’s nothing wrong with having options – this simply demonstrates the rate at which Bucharest is continuing to grow. Here’s a true story; Some time ago, I was walking down the street – hungry – and decided I’d try a cheeseburger at a restaurant claiming to have something like “the best steaks”, or meat, or whatever. Well, I was pleased; as I recall,…
  • The English Vs. The Romanians – The Final Solution

    Before we get in to how you can help hunt for those evil Romanians in the UK, we’d like to share some interesting information with you regarding racism, hatred, ignorance and beyond. Hopefully, we’ll succeed in making some connections to the issue at hand; a potentially renewed hatred towards Romanians due to the fallout (or possibly unintended consequences) of the new series on Channel 4; “The Romanians Are Coming”. To start things off on a lighter note, let’s talk about Black people. Particularly, blacks in America. Here’s a quick story, via Skype, from one of our contributing…

    Alright, we’ll go ahead and say it – the new bookstore in Lipscani is a nauseating disappointment. The local media is touting this as a great renewal of an old building – and it’s garnering quite a bit of attention. Unfortunately, it seems to be catching people’s eyes for all the wrong reasons. Before we get into the details of this statement – a statement that’s likely upset a number of people already – let’s go backwards in time for a moment… We all know that Bucharest is a mixture of old and new, historical and beautiful, historical and not-so-beautiful,…

    The increasing influx of expats into Romania means that businesses and services must adapt and evolve in ways that may be considered “out of the box” for many local business owners. There are many ways to attract this growing demographic; at Bucharest Expat we’re constantly on the look-out for a few key elements that draw us to a particular venue. Although the majority of us expats try as hard as we can to integrate well with local society, there’s nothing wrong with trying to “bring a little bit of home” to local living. Let’s take a look at the venues that make for a good…
  • Yes YOU’RE An Expat

    Bucharest Expat
    21 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    A friendly argument that’s been running around for quite some time now, is whether or not a foreigner living in Bucharest should consider themselves an “Expatriate”. The reason we decided that now was a great time to post this article, is because we almost (that’s a very strong almost) decided to switch our name away from Bucharest Expat to something different. This was a tough decision to weigh. On one hand our website has evolved over the years to become much more streamlined. As it turns out, the majority of viewers seeking “news” are already to subscribed to feeds from…
