NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AFAR Media today announced its first Facebook Live series created with exclusive launch partner, Curacao Tourist Board, as a means to connect with consumers via social media. As consumers increasingly consult their social communities for travel ideas and inspiration, the broadcast goes well beyond the traditional model of a travel magazine, allowing travelers to experience and interact with a destination in real time.
Hosted by notable local Chanelle De Lau, Miss Curaçao 2016, the live broadcast will take place at three different times and Curaçao locations throughout the day on AFAR's Facebook Page. Viewers will virtually learn about Curaçao's history, interact with locals, and experience popular attractions. All comments and questions received during the broadcast will qualify users for a trip to the destination.
"By featuring Curaçao as our first Facebook Live partner, we're connecting AFAR's social community to the destination in a deeper, more personal way. AFAR embraces innovation and authenticity and Facebook Live is the perfect platform to bring destinations like Curaçao to life for our audience," Ellen Asmodeo-Giglio, Chief Revenue Officer, AFAR Media.
AFAR's partnership with Curaçao Tourist Board came together when the tourism bureau asked the media company to co-create a unique campaign that would go deeper than any other marketing they have done with a publication.
"AFAR is known for going beyond traditional magazine stories and inspiring readers to explore deeper, more meaningful travel experiences," said Andre Rojer, Curaçao Tourist Board's North American Marketing Manager. "We are very excited about this new initiative, as it will showcase Curaçao's unique heritage, stunning landscapes and vast cultural experiences, while transporting fans to the island, in real time. Our goal is to highlight what's going on 'Right Now in Curaçao' with authentic footage and insights that will ultimately encourage fans to take advantage of the island's diverse experiences in the future."
The first broadcast will launch on the AFAR Facebook Page at 12:00 pm ET on April 20, 2017, with additional segments airing at 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm ET. The sweepstakes will be open until April 22, 2017 with winners revealed by April 26, 2017.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
