If you have a significant tourism operation in EU countries or serving the EU tourism market you must attend this convention and participate in its thematic workshops. DEADLINE to apply: Thursday, September 17th 2020, 16h00 CEST
The tourism sector in Europe, in particular in The Mediterranean region, is among the hardest hit by the global COVID-19 pandemic since early 2020.
The European Commission is organising the European Tourism Convention on 12th October 2020. The Convention will launch a dialogue on sustainable recovery and the strategic orientations for the tourism of tomorrow and guide future work and cooperation on tourism (towards a European Agenda for Tourism 2050).
On the convention there will be three on-line thematic workshops, which will be held in parallel in the morning of 12th October. The aim of the workshops is to map key issues, generate a discussion about the challenges and opportunities of the EU tourism sector and suggest a set of SMART action points to be presented and discussed during the Plenary of the European Tourism Convention in the afternoon.
Workshops topics and how to apply:
Each workshop will gather up to 30 participants, including representatives of the EU institutions, of public authorities, associations of the tourism and travel industry, international organisations, academics, as well as other relevant stakeholders.
Places are limited and the selected participants will have a unique chance to guide the future work on tourism recovery and transition.
You will commit to a 3-hour online workshop on the 12th October 2020 (9h00-12h00 CEST) to engage collaboratively and proactively in a guided discussion. We are thus counting on you.
