In LIVEA7 - "Live your sense of being", 7 selected bloggers from different countries will offer exclusive  tips and ideas on how to experience their respective cities to their fullest in true EA7 style, including sports, hotels, shopping, food, leisure, and more.

GAMEA7 - "Support your country with your sense of being" is a real-life virtual game in which users participate by simply choosing their own country and “checking in” when travelling, allowing users to earn valuable points in different locations. The country that achieves the highest score will reach the podium and will have access to the Winner Circle, a special area dedicated exclusively to the winners.
