EMACNS 2018, AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE ECONOMY AND THE INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION OF ALICANTE

It has been shown that brands that opt for a project that offers an experience enjoy a greater rate of recall and association than with the generation of any other type of content.

The experience in this case can be achieved by collaborating in a quality sports / tourism project.

POSITIONING AND REPUTATION

The commercial and marketing plan of EMACNS ALICANTE 2018 is aimed at making it the athletics event with the greatest social impact organized to date.

Without doubt it is one of the most important sporting events of 2018 in the province of Alicante and the most important European Athletics Championship for VETERANS.

A professional communication team will work for our sponsors to bring them the opportunity to generate notoriety, reputation and business in the World. Of special interest for those companies that have commercial objectives in Europe..

The communication, the hospitality, and the public relations of athletics are an unbeatable key to entry into new market niches.

On the other hand, from the Royal Spanish Athletics Federation and the organizing committee, we want to take advantage of the importance of the EMACNS ALICANTE 2018 championship to promote the practice of athletics among the Alicante society and by extension to all Spaniards.

For this purpose, we have designed, planned and articulated a series of programs aimed at different audiences that we believe may be permeable to this proposal, among which are school children, the elderly, people with disabilities and family groups.

We firmly believe that the practice of athletics can bring a series of benefits to society not only within the sports sphere but also educational and socializing.

Athletics is a great sport that can be practiced by anyone regardless of their age, gender and physical conditions. An integrating sport, motivating and above all fun.
