The Big Virtual ‘Czech-In’
This week CzechTourism and Budweiser Budvar are aiming to host the biggest virtual tourism industry party for the public to date. The event includes tutored beer tasting, a stay at home quiz and a Czech DJ set via Facebook Live on the 7th May. Over 100 influencers have already signed-up!
The event wants to spread positivity and unity during the lockdown, giving people a chance to taste and visit the Czech Republic from their homes. Starting at 7:30pm on the Visit Czech Republic Facebook page, influencers and members of the public can take part in the festivities from home, running into the late night.
The event starts with a tutored virtual beer tasting with Budweisier Budvar, the national brewery of the Czech Republic, where an expert from the brewery will teach participants how to best pour and enjoy their Czech beer.
Next will be a stay at home pub quiz with amazing prizes up for grabs, before a live performance from Czech DJ’s Oliver Torr and Lotus Walsh to take the party into the night.
The huge event is the next installment of the #CheersFromCzech campaign, where CzechTourism and Budvar teamed up to supply 500 isolation care packages containing free beer to travellers that had their trips to the Czech Republic cancelled. All participants can sign-up via the FB Event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/570361900270472/
Katarina Hobbs CzechTourism UK and Ireland Director states:
“It’s been a challenging moment within the tourism sector – so our aim is to bring as many people together and remind everyone about the joys of tourism experiences. This event aims to reflect Czech hospitality – we want to help the public learn a little about our high quality beer and cultural experiences. A beer tasting, a fun social quiz and a Czech DJ set should give our audiences an evening of insights to what a big night out in any Czech town or city could be like”
