Promotion for qualified tourist guides in Europe – FEG with own YouTube-channel

The European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) went online with its own Youtube channel. The videos show scenes from current meetings and reports on current projects of the FEG. The Federation asks all member associations and local tourist guide organizations to make notice and relevant posts on unified Facebook or Twitter accounts.

Furthermore, the FEG asks colleagues, associations and other individuals  to film a short video clip about their professional tourist guides, lasting only 30-45 seconds. The best ones will be chosen to be uploaded on the FEG YouTube Channel and posted on the FEG Facebook page for the whole season. This is to promote the profession of the FEGs tourist guides in Europe.  When filming, please follow these instructions:

  • The video clip can be filmed with a mobile phone
  • Stand in front of a trademark of your area: a site, monument, cityscape, landscape
  • Better film several tourist guides together, not just one or two
  • Record the clips in your own language or several other languages, even in sign language – whatever is convenient for you
  • Practice what you will say before you record, speak slowly and with thought
  • Smile when you speak and don’t shift eyes, record at eye level and don’t wear white
  • Speak on the phone camera by saying a short – only positive – message to promote qualified tourist guides and your area of work

Send your video clips to secretariat@feg-touristguides.org
