An event not to be missed
For 4 years now, the international forum A World of Travel has been bringing together dignitaries, tourism companies, and travelers from all over the world to answer a topical question about the sector in the context of sustainable development. After last year’s event in Nîmes in France, it’s now the turn of the Spanish city of Seville to host the event, in partnership with the Tourism Innovation Summit on October 17 to 19 2023. Capital city of the Andalusia region, Seville is the country’s jewel in the crown in terms of heritage and culture. It’s sure to be a feast for the eyes for 2 days, punctuated by debates essential to the considerable changes facing the tourism industry.
What will we talk about for 3 days?
This year, the forum’s debate will focus on how and why the tourism sector needs to move in a more sustainable direction. To this end, representatives of NGOs, the media, academics, public sector leaders, experts… will be on hand. The aim is simple: to promote sustainability, raise awareness, and encourage tourism players to make it a shared ambition.
This broad issue will be addressed through 5 main themes:
- Social issues
Each area will have its conference, enabling tourism companies to take stock of their impact and draw inspiration for improving the customer experience they offer. For travelers, it is the way they travel that will be up for debate, from eating locally to using public transport on vacation.
What’s in it for everyone?
