What if you could travel to the four corners of Europe without even stepping on a plane? That's the enticing message Tourisme Montréal has for tourists from Ontario and the U.S. as part of a fall campaign that highlights the similarities between the metropolis and Europe's great cities.
Montreal’s European heritage, evident in its architecture, food, unique culture and many attractions, is featured in an ad campaign that makes people want to hop in the car and visit. In a series of four different vignettes, Montreal is compared to Paris, London, Amsterdam and Berlin – cities known for their rich quality of life.
“Travellers living nearby in Ontario and the northeastern U.S. may not feel ready yet to cross the Atlantic because of the current health situation,” explained Mylène Neufcourt, Communication and Advertising Manager, Tourisme Montréal. “That’s why we wanted to focus on Montreal’s European side without forgetting what makes it unique – its food, creativity, culture and Montrealers’ warmth – in order to remind people that the city is the perfect destination to enjoy that faraway feeling close to home.”
Though Montreal may resemble some of Europe’s great cities, it also has its own special charms. Some of the city’s iconic elements such as “squeak, squeak!” cheese, smoked meat and bagels are featured separately in short 15-second videos, narrated with a local accent.
