« Macedonia Agency for Promotion & Support of Tourism » MAPST appoints from May 2014 ATTRACT as its permanent PR & Marketing representative for launching the destination in the French market place. Priority will be given to build the brand and notoriety of this emerging destination through proactive PR activities mixed with digital consumer marketing programs that would rapidly enable growing French number of visitors. No doubt about the high potential of the destination for seducing the French upper-middle class 35-50’s DINKS from the Paris area in search for full week or 4 days short haul “fly and drive” undiscovered destinations.  Wizz Air low cost direct flights recently opened between Paris and capital city Skopje count among key arguments for moving the French market.
