Launching the #TellSomeoneYouLoveThem2021 campaign
Verbier, Switzerland February 12, 2021
What is the campaign about?
It is simple, it’s about telling someone you love them, capturing the experience & sharing the love – There is also a creative Instagram photo competition with a fabulously exclusive prize – a night for two in a 4*hotel and a luxuriously alpine champagne and paraglide experience. The campaign is hosted on the Above & Beyond VIP website https://aboveandbeyondvip.com/tellsomeoneyoulovethem2021/
What is it asking, and who is it asking?
With Valentine’s Day upon us, now is when people think about telling someone special they love them. We are asking anyone and everyone, not just couples, from all over the world to tell at least one person they love and appreciate them. It doesn’t have to be in the romantic sense, it could be to a very good friend, close family member, a pet or even someone you work with.
Everyone deserves to hear the three short words, ‘I Love you’. Telling someone you love them only takes a second but the joy and pleasure it brings is priceless and can last forever – the aim of the campaign is for everyone to experience this feeling. It doesn’t need to be said face-to-face nor in a romantic sense either – it is the ultimate Socially Distant Experience for all. The aim of the campaign is that everyone, not just couples, should tell at least one person they love and appreciate them.
Why the campaign?
The last 12 months has been hard for everyone, being away from loved ones, losing someone close, not just from Covid, but here in the Alps from avalanches too – this campaign is something positive. You shouldn’t just wait to say I Love You on Valentine’s Day, you should say it whenever you think it as you never know when it might be too late.
The Instagram competition

The rise of the Socially Distant Experience
Above & Beyond VIP defines a Socially Distant Experience as a special and intimate moment shared between two or more people, such as a close friend, a family member, a husband or wife, it could even be a pet or someone you work with - someone who is important, who makes you smile, someone who makes getting up in the morning worthwhile.
Long before Covid and Social Distancing was a thing, Above & Beyond VIP was organising luxuriously alpine socially distant experiences and while Covid regulations will (hopefully) become a thing of the past, intimate, socially distant experiences are here to stay.
“While Covid coined the term 'social distancing', it doesn't have to define its meaning for the future.” Says Above & Beyond Founder Sophia Heneage.
Luxuriously alpine socially distant experiences
“Before Covid-19 and social distancing, we had started to notice a shift away from people wanting big weddings or large anniversary and birthday parties, and our clients were moving towards wanting intimate experiences they could share with loved ones, so we adapted our experiences to reflect this.
Weddings for a couple plus two witnesses, anniversaries and birthdays shared with best pals instead of hundreds of friends – these are the experiences that we now call ‘socially distant experiences'.
Once Covid restrictions die down, while some may go back to crowded nightclubs and large parties, socially distant experiences will remain.
Small, intimate experiences in fresh alpine air away from the masses; flying to remote parts of the mountain; ice bars with epic views of snow-capped peaks and sun-kissed valleys; proposing on a glacier with champagne and roses; romantic picnics in the snow – these are just some of the things that we organise for clients.” adds Sophia.
“Our 'socially distant experiences' in the Alps are romantic, exciting, luxurious and exclusive, we love organising them and we love it even more when people tell each other they love them!”
