Analysis of the region's opportunities
After the detailed analysis of the region (July-September 2019), the Department of regional development of Cherkasy regional state administration has initiated the development of the region's brand.

The experts of the Agency of Tourism Initiatives, which already had the successful experience in the regions' brands development, have been invited for cooperation.
Slogans discussions
The working group has united people, who represent different spheres of life in order to start the brand creation process (October 2019).

It was decided to start from the slogan contest. After all, the proper slogan was to help the team in developing the brand. When more than 200 variants were received, the working group worked them out and voted for the best three ones.

Moreover, in 2019 we have launched this website and have started the information campaign. As a result, in the period from September 2019 till January 2020 we have received over 400 publications in the media and social networks and 10 TV and radio broadcasts.
Tourism forum in Cherkasy
On December 13, 2019 the Department together with the Public Association "Cherkasy Region Hospitality Association" held in Cherkasy Art Museum the 4-th Tourism forum of Cherkasy region "Let's create a BRAND of Cherkasy region".

The presentation of the initiative on brand development was held and the partners from Drohobych, Kyiv and Ternopil shared the best practices. They explained to the guests why it was important to have a brand of the region.

More than 80 representatives of the tourism business, authorities and the public attended the event. Also Vita Vdovychenko has presented the TOP-3 slogans of the region. The community was offered to choose the best one.
