Kick-off Conference and 2nd all-partner meeting of the SOUTH COAST BALTIC is a three-day event organized by the Economic Development Corporation Vorpommern, that will be held on 16-18 May 2017 in the sea resort Bansin, on Usedom Island (Germany).

SOUTH COAST BALTIC project has been developed in order to build a long term cross-border destination management through the improvement of boating services and infrastructure, on the basis of the MARRIAGE cooperation network.

The 2012 MARRIAGE project launched the cross-border destinations on domestic markets, building cooperation and exchange in water tourism management and marketing, and creating a consolidate network in the southern Baltic regions of Vorpommern (Germany), Zachodniopomorskie and Pomorskie (Poland), Kaliningrad (Russia), Klaipeda region (Lithuania).

SOUTH COAST BALTIC will have an added value in the destination building process. The challenge in these regions now, is not only to access new target markets, but to provide repeaters and followers with high quality boating facilities and services, that need to be harmonized across the south coast Baltic area, also by means of a joint promotion.

SOUTH COAST BALTIC is the very rare case of a tourism project, in which the form of recreation addressed has a genuine cross-border nature and it is evident that applying cross-border cooperation can significantly add to fostering its intensity.
