Slightly more detailed descriptions of a selection of current and upcoming events are provided on the left-hand column of the opening page. In addition, by means of the event database on the English page of the site it is possible to search for events in the city by their type (concert, exhibition, etc.) and time.

The assortment of Tallinn City Tourist Office & Convention Bureau's publications has grown a little. In January a new leaflet in Italian was published for the first time, providing a general introduction to the city. A completely up-dated leaflet in Spanish has also been released, with the latest practical information, and a new city map with the newest hotels and other sites clearly marked. For a closer inspection of all TCTO&CB's marketing materials, visit the travel trade section of the Tallinn tourism webpage where PDF files of the publications can be found as well.
