Avanti Unveils ‘Go365’ Campaign for 2022-23 Off-Season

Avanti Destinations has launched its 2022 “Go365” campaign with two e-brochures—one dedicated to advisors, and another for their clients. The campaign is aimed at assisting travel advisors in selling more independent travel throughout the year, especially during the off-season months from October through March. Both the 54-page advisor guide and the 46-page consumer version of the e-brochure is available on Avanti’s recently revamped portal.

Both e-brochures list 40 food, wine, beer, music, film, religious and cultural festivals and events that only take place October-March around Europe and the U.K., such as “Mozart Week” (Austria), “Scottish International Storytelling Festival” (Edinburgh), “Dijon Gastronomic Fair” (France), “Feast of Santa Lucia” (Sicily), “St Martin’s Wine Festival” (Slovenia and Czech Republic), “Geneva International Film Festival” (Switzerland), “Truffle Days” (Croatia), “Apple Festival” (south of France), “Las Fallas” (Spain), “Paris White Night” and “Winter Jazz Festival” (Denmark), besides Oktoberfest and Christmas markets in many locations.
