Today, the Embassy of Ecuador in Washington, DC hosted a breakfast, at the Willard Hotel, where Ecuadorian Ambassador Francisco Borja met with tour operators, media, and cultural organizations from the Washington, DC area to present Ecuador’s potential as a prime tourism destination and the FEEL AGAIN project, the second phase of the worldwide All You Need Is Ecuador campaign.

The event supports the government’s efforts to sustain the country’s broader goal of changing its productive matrix and transitioning away from oil-based revenues by diversifying its economy. Focusing on tourism from the U.S. is also part of a long-term plan to increase bilateral trade and strengthen the ties between the peoples of our two countries.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to meet with key players of the tourism industry here in Washington, DC,” said Ambassador Borja. “The United States is the second largest market for the Ecuadorian tourism industry. So that we can explain the many new and exciting world-class tourist offerings our beautiful and biodiverse country has to offer, and to attract more American citizens to come visit our country, it is very important that we establish strong relationships with people and organizations in the nation’s capital through events like these.”

During the event, the Embassy highlighted the different touristic resources the country has to offer in its four different regions: the Andes Highlands, the Pacific Coast, the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rainforest. An important component of the second phase of the All You Need is Ecuador campaign is that it is aimed to engage American tour operators, travel reporters, bloggers and other influential figures of the tourism industry in the United States.

As a result of the successful All You Need Is Ecuador campaign, along with the increased investment in a state-of-the-art tourist infrastructure in the country, Ecuador has witnessed a boost in the country’s tourism industry. In 2014, the tourism sector in Ecuador contributed $1.5billion (USD) to the country’s economy, equivalent to 5% of GDP, making it Ecuador’s third largest industry. Ecuador also welcomed 259,468 US visitors in 2014, a 5% increase from the previous year.

The Embassy of Ecuador in the United States and the Ecuadorian Ministry of Tourism officially launched in Washington, D.C. “FEEL AGAIN”, the second stage of the All You Need is Ecuador international tourism campaign.

Focusing on tourism is part of a long-term plan to increase bilateral trade and strengthen the ties between the peoples of our two countries.”

The Washington, D.C. portion of the FEEL AGAIN campaign features seven double-decker tour buses decorated with colorful ads that showcase famous tourist destinations. The buses will be visible throughout the city, taking tourists to landmark locations around the nations capital from July 6th until the first week of August. The D.C campaign also includes 100 (25% of all metro cars) floor-to-ceiling panel ads in the D.C. Metro System.

Later this July, the Embassy of Ecuador will also host a roundtable in Washington, D.C. where Ambassador Francisco Borja will meet with tourist operators, media, and cultural organizations from the DMV area. The discussion will be centered on the FEEL AGAIN campaign and why Ecuador is a world-class tourist destination that has a lot to offer for travel, businesses, and tourism.

The campaign is a continuation of the country’s $28 million global promotion efforts in 2015, which have included the first-ever foreign-sponsored Super Bowl halftime commercial, as well as ads in TV, online, and public events in key U.S. markets, including New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida, and California.
