Founded in 2006, the Vienna Experts Club International is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year! In order to celebrate the 10 year existence of this club, the Vienna Tourist Board has put together a fun and comprehensive trip to Vienna for 22 lucky members. The trip includes a four-day stay in Vienna, all expenses included, for one member per the 22 included countries. The trip will take place from June 9th – June 12th, and in addition to taking part in an array of fun group activities and culinary highlights, each member will shoot his own movie clip that highlights some of the sights and institutions that contribute to his perfect day in Vienna. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet some of the local partners of the Vienna Experts Club International at one of the evening events.
Applicants were able to apply to be a part of this trip through an online casting that was launched via newsletter in February 2016. Applicants were required to send a short video describing themselves and why they want to come to Vienna. Though the decision was difficult, 22 lucky participants were then selected.
Once completed, the 22 short films produced by the participants while in Vienna will be used to advertise the Vienna Experts Club International on the official Vienna Experts Club International website, as well as on the social media channels of the Vienna Tourist Board. Each video will be filmed in the participant’s mother tongue, meaning there will be 22 different films in 15 different languages. Membership to the Vienna Experts Club International is free! As a member you can enjoy a wide range of benefits, including the best conditions at Viennese hotels, reduced of free entry to Viennese institutions, raffles, and the Vienna Card for public transportation and a further 210 reductions.
