Zzap-online in seven questions
What is Zzap-online infoportal?
The Zzap-online infoportal is a quadrilingual, digital media currently being set up for everything related to culture and leisure activities in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion. Amongst other things, the web portal offers a website guide. The Web guide consists of about 150 categories related to a particular topic, for example Visual Art, Museums or Wellness. Companies, organisations, associations, people and events can present themselves internationally within this Web guide by means of their own web page in the three languages of the Meuse-Rhine Euregion and in English.
Who can create a Web guide page?
Everyone actively involved in art, cultural activities or media, or who is part of the creative industry or leisure, restaurant/bar/catering and tourism sectors, including shops within these sectors, can register to be listed on this Euregional search engine by clicking on the button “Create page Web guide”. Next, the party concerned can log in with the applied code and create its own page in the web portal — an advertorial page, a photo page or a video page — and manage this page themselves. Activities can be entered in the calendar.
View the list with clubs on the registration form and select the category that best matches your profile or your business’s profile. The Zzap editorial staff will assess every application and, on the basis of your activities, determine whether you or your website may be eligible to be listed in more than one club.
Are there any costs involved?
No, there are no costs involved. Everyone who is active in the abovementioned sectors can register free of charge and manage their own page.
What else does Zzap-online infoportal offer?
Above all, Zzap-online infoportal is a media site. Together with the Website guide, the web portal also offers Zzap Magazine, a quadrilingual, digital journal.
