And after the ringing of the bells, Spanish fashion

We had barely finished our grapes, kissed the family and toasted the New Year when public TV, among its very first ads, welcomed 2017 with a promotional video of Brand Spain. The general idea of ​​this advertisement is to raise our native moral during such an emotional moment by placing on the table, better said, on our TV screens, the best of our country. And I bring this to collation here because this year, the collective I represent, has filled us with pride in a very special way. I explain.

Specifically, in the last edition of 2016 journalists of 9 different nationalities saw our creations.

The new institutional video of Brand Spain, Spain Everywhere, will be sent to all the embassies and public and private institutions for broadcasting during the year 2017, and will accompany the authorities on their official trips abroad, as was already the case with audio-visuals from previous years.
