“This is Egypt” wins WTO’s prize for the best promo video in the Middle East

At the 22nd session of the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization in China, Egypt won the award for the Best Tourism Promotional Video in the Middle East, among 63 nominated countries.

The Egyptian participant promotional film titled “This is Egypt”, is a 1:20 minute movie that features mesmerizing scenes of the unique tourist attractions of Egypt, highlighting the diverse range of tourist activities available in Egypt and the different types of tourism in Egypt that can be enjoyed; including cultural, leisure and marine tourism.

Back in October 2016, Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism has released the promotional video for its “This is Egypt” campaign, which aims to bring tourists back to Egypt.

“This is Egypt” also was chosen as Best Tourism Promotion by “Golden City Gate Award,” on the sidelines of the International Tourism Exchange in Berlin (ITB) held last March.
