Relais & Châteaux Italia Focuses on Northern Europe


DaGama Travelweb is to represent the 46 Italian Relais & Châteaux 

in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.


Relais & Châteaux Italy has chosen a Swedish company specializing in consultancy, communication, marketing, and sales services in the tourism sector, DaGama Travelweb, to represent the Delegation’s 46 Italian properties in the four key northern European markets of Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.


The Nordic countries boast solid, growth economies and culturally versed populations with a strong penchant for travel, making this area a kingpin in Relais & Châteaux Italia’s development plan as we move towards the strategically important Expo 2015.


“In recent months we have worked as an association to develop a sense of cooperation and solidarity between members, both on a commercial level and with respect to our image, to better prepare for the challenges facing us over the coming year. Of the foreign markets considered within the context of our growth plan, Nordic travellers stood out as being strongly attracted to warmer countries and interested in exploring places through contact with the nature, culture, and local products. For these reasons, this target is likely to be particularly receptive to the offer of the 46 Italian Relais & Châteaux, each of which offers a unique experience of the Art de Vivre and fine cuisine of its territory”,  explains Elisabeth Debiasi, Director of Relais & Châteaux Italia.  “We preferred to confide communications for the Nordic countries to a representative with an intimate knowledge of the northern European markets and we found we were on the same wavelength as DaGama Travelweb from the outset. They have extensive experience in the field and their pragmatic, success-driven approach is extremely refreshing. We strongly believe that this partnership will be of great benefit to our members.”


DaGama Travelweb will develop a strategy to promote the association’s 46 Italian boutique hotels and fine restaurants to tourism operators and consumers.


Birgitta Andersson, Owner and Director of DaGama Travelweb: ‘We are both honoured and enthusiastic to have the opportunity to address this challenge, which features two major objectives. Firstly, we will work on raising awareness of Relais & Châteaux, with a focus on highlighting the uniqueness of the Italian establishments in the brand’s portfolio, from the breadth and variety of the range, to the unique characteristics of each property, the amazing cuisine, and the travel experiences throughout Italy’s varied regions, by promoting the Routes du Bonheur, the itineraries suggested by its hoteliers, chefs and restaurateurs to better explore their territory. Secondly, in markets where it is hard to win people’s trust, but once they are convinced they become loyal customers, it is important to work on three strategic targets: tour operators and travel agents, of course, but also the end consumer, with a focus on individual travellers and small groups.’
