Once again F&M are visiting New York and once again I don't see the point.

Firstly isn't this their 3rd visit as part of a trade delegation? Surely, the fact that they need to make repetitive trips to the same place for the same purpose means that each visit is not working. Clearly they are just not doing a good enough job "selling" Denmark to the US and need to look at changing their tactics.

Secondly I notice that part of official press release says they want to "raise awareness of Danish creativity in design and fasion". I'm assuming that they are linking that to Mary's patronage of CIFF. However, how can she be promoting Danish design in New York when she doesn't even do that in Denmark? She has missed the last 2 CIFF events and considering it's a bi-annual event that mean she has done NOTHING to officially promote Danish fashion in 2011. Missing the event in Feb was fair enough because of the twins but what was her excuse in August?

Thirdly I notice that one again it seems that they are not meeting any American dignitaries, politicians etc. Why keep visiting the same places if you are not going to meet with other VIPs? It seems silly to do so.

This is just all PR rubbish.  Denmark is not a leader in creativity and fashion.  Obviously the fashion industry is peeved at their poor export figures and is pushing the government to assist with a trade mission.  You would expect Mary and the other women in the delegation to wear Danish fashion for the five days running.

No chance of that.  Mary has an 'under the counter' deal with Prada and she'll be wearing Italian for sure.

Seriously, Derfy and Mares are going to NY to promote active healthy lifestyles.  Crazy


I can see it now.....

Fred to the audience "I always stand by the moto: Beer before liquor, never sicker. Liquor before beer, never fear."

And Mares "To maintain my healthy figure I don't let an ounce of food pass these artificially plumped lips and right before I feel like I'm about to pass out I eat a cube of cheese."  Secret


Yeah, these two are real role models.  Dead

If you put it like that it makes perfect sense why those who do have them as role models, aka the sugars, act the way they do.

well DK might not be a leader but that's the DRF job to promote her as such

can they deliver the goods? past says NOT the previous NY trip was a complete fail to the point that the Danish media noted It

the Washington was another fail they got not attention and boy they tried and were shooting everywhere for attention

This one will be another trip that won't deliver the good their PR is asking for

No one cares because they are not interesting, and unfortunately, Denmark is too small to make it on to NY'ers radar screen.  No

When I was there, I always had to say "neighbor to Sweden" and then people would know what I was talking about.  Cry

Why would you go to a country who is having its own financial difficulty to promote yourself to? Huh?
they are way too busy trying to save themselves.
Why not go to emerging economies to promote Danish everything, to give yourself a toe hold? Blink

ITA. Although with Swedish and Norwegian "heads of state", they may get some attention. By themselves, they can't even open door to the major's office in NYC, what's their chance of getting Danish designs and fashion noticed in NY?

I agree, G.

The DRF seems to have a very narrow world view IMO and when they do visit the emerging economies like China and Brazil they send Joachim. Overall he does a better job but it's sending a very loud and clear signal to those countries that they do no warrant a visit from te CP couple.  Roll Eyes
