The 17th European Tourism Forum is a high-level conference organised by the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the EU, together with the European Commission.
The forum will be an occasion to draw a picture of the fast-changing, interconnected and dynamic environment that decision-makers in tourism have to face. Moreover, the forum will provide the opportunity to exchange ideas on how to respond to current and emerging challenges in strategic tourism planning. The central question is: How can we shape a sustainable form of tourism, which is ensuring quality of life and added-value in the long run? In this context, selected key issues and successful tourism strategies with regard to processes, partnerships and networks will be addressed.
The event will bring together experts from the public and private sector of all EU member states, as well as European institutions and associations.
