ICECREAM
INDEX

The SoolNua world ICECREAM index is a marketing platform that allows destinations build profile and drive demand in the MICE / Business Events sector by highlighting the uniqueness and authenticity of their ice cream stores.

SVG Support Icon

It asks DMOs / CVBs to identify their favourite ice cream store and help it build an on-line campaign designed to get that store – and the destination – to the top of the leader board by the end of Summer 2017.

Over the past 2 years, we have had a European winner (Lolita, Slovenia), a US based winner (Ted Drewes, St. Louis), 55,000 online votes, 15 countries and 30 cities enter to support and showcase their destination with their representing ice cream stores. Thank you for your continued support and ice cream passion!
