A conference on the future of mountain tourism is slated to take place in Bavaria next month. The gathering will spotlight the ‘significant opportunities to be seized’ and the challenges facing the development of mountain tourism.
Organisers say the UNWTO Euro-Asian Mountain Tourism Conference is conceived to create a long-term and shared vision for the important travel sector.
Panel debates and presentations will address themes such as the impact of demographic change, digitalization and mobility, year-round tourism experiences, transnational cooperation and the contribution of tourism to the sustainable development goals.
The Bavarian Minister for Economics, Development and Energy, Hubert Aiwanger, the UNWTO Secretary-General, Zurab Pololikashvili, and the Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, Thomas Bareiss, will inaugurate the conference which takes place from 2nd – 5th March.
