31st of March, Seville
In the framework of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism (IYST2017) and of our Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2017, NECSTouR organises with the UNWTO a Public Thematic Conference on "Smart Tourism Destinations' Contribution for the Planet and its People".
The IYSTD 2017 is indeed at the core of the NECSTouR principles and this year work programme and is embedded in the cooperation with the UNWTO, which was formalised in December 2016 by the signature of a memorandum of understanding.
Therefore, NECSTouR is delighted to dedicate its yearly thematic conference, in the framework of its General Assembly Meeting, to the purposes of this International Year.
The conference will focus on the role and further actions than Smart Destinations play as drivers of change for more sustainable tourism in the Region Europe.
This event will gather European Regions, mainly NECSTouR Members, university networks and affiliated members together with representatives of the European Member States, institutions of the European Union, tourism sector stakeholders and international experts in sustainable tourism development.
