Rome, Italy (PRWEB) September 9, 2008
Venere.com is announcing its first-ever Win & Watch Contest celebrating its commitment to interactive communication with users all over the world. The contest marks the official launch of the Venere Travel Blog and the Venere behind the Scenes video on Youtube.
Venere.com is organizing the Win & Watch Contest in collaboration with Boscolo Luxury Hotels, a premier brand in the high end of the hotel sector. The premise of the contest is easy: watch our fun Behind the Scenes video and answer a simple question. Participants from all over the world can enter to win a fantastic 4-night stay in the luxury hotel suite featured in the video, at the Boscolo Exedra Hotel right in the center of Rome, or, should the winner prefer, at the brand new Boscolo Exedra Hotel Nice (France), opening in October.
The two-and-a-half minute Behind the Scenes video shows the imaginary route on popular venere.com, from hotel search to results with best available hotel rooms. All actors in the video are venere.com employees.
