Most popular images for promoting Estonia as event destination

We all know a picture is worth a thousand words. Over the years our Estonian Convention Bureau’s team has given hundreds of destination presentations to showcase Estonia for meetings and events.

We usually complement text on slides with stunning photos on Estonia as information delivered images is more likely to be remembered than words alone. People don’t remember every slide and every word of a presentation. They remember „wow” moments! So, let us highlight our most popular images to promote Estonia and grab an audience’s attention.
