Project Summary

Project Objectives

The Alpine Space (AS) is well-known for its high diversity of products, services and attractive landscapes. But so far the AS is not perceived as one entity, as there is no economic common identity of the AS and no corporate marketing strategy for its core economies. The existing potential of the AS has not been promoted efficiently enough due to the lack of communication and cooperation on both political and economical levels and to the lack of a corporate branding and marketing strategy. Because of these problems the project RegioMarket aims at developing and implementing a corporate sustainable branding and marketing strategy for the AS based on the available experience within this area. All partners will implement their activities within defined pilot areas.

Project Achievements

The project RegioMarket aims to develop and implement a corporate sustainable branding and marketing strategy for the Alpine Space focused on three core economic sectors: agricultural food products, services (tourism and gastronomy) and renewable energies. The strategy will contribute to the promotion of top-quality products and services inside and outside the Alpine Space and to the establishment of a Unique Selling Proposition which will increase the competitiveness and promotion of SMEs and new business investments within the Alpine Space. Environmental protection and sustainable management of the Alpine Space are an essential part of the strategy. New networks and a permanent Knowledge Management System will be implemented to support the possibility of exchanging knowledge. RegioMarket will provide a clear guidance to public authorities / policy makers and other economists working in marketing and branding.
