Furthermore, partner organizations will closely collaborate to create and develop new tourism products to make the Hanse the leading tourism brand within the Baltic Sea Region. Eight partners from Latvia have joined the project, namely, Cēsis Culture and Tourism Centre, Koknese, Limbaži, Pārgauja and Kuldīga counties, as well as Valmiera City Council and the Vidzeme Planning Region. Viljandi and Pärnu City Councils are represented by Estonia and from Sweden – Gotland Region and the Gotland Tourism Development Agency “Inspirational Gotland”, which is also the leading partner of the project.
