Forum TouristTIC: Towards new models of tourism – Barcelona (and online) 13 october
The Interreg MED Sustainable Tourism Community organised the workshop “Tools for Thinning Tourist Density and Promoting Off-Season Tourism in the Mediterranean” which featured three projects from the community: HERIT-DATA, ATER ECO and DestiMED.
The three projects develop technological tools to contribute to de-concentration and de-seasonalisation of tourism flows in Mediterranean coastal areas. Our Spanish partner Valenciaport Foundation presented the HERIT-DATA project, with a specific focus on the pilot action in the cruise port of Valencia.
The Forum TouristTIC 2020 has been the 8th edition, and this year it explored the topic of new tourism models. This event, held both on site and online, allowed to showcase projects and technologies which facilitate the deconcentration and the deseasonalisation of tourism.

News from the tourism sector
EU Tourism Convention & A World for Travel meeting to discuss the future of tourism
The logos of the 2 events

This month, we will give you a summary of two high-level events that allowed to exchange views about what the global strategies for tourism recovery should look like: the European Tourism Convention and the A World For Travel meeting.

The European Tourism Convention took place the 12th October. It was organised by the European Commission to launch a dialogue on sustainable recovery and the strategic orientations for the tourism of tomorrow, and to guide future work and cooperation on tourism.
The event consisted in three parallel workshops with selected groups of tourism sector actors, and in a plenary session, open to everyone. The workshops participants were asked to identify key challenges, opportunities and actions for the “European tourism ecosystem of tomorrow”. One of the three workshops addressed the use of data, which confirms the importance of this topic for tourism recovery.
During the plenary, speakers were asked to give a key ingredient for the European Tourism Agenda 2050.

Here you can find a visual summarising these key ingredients.

The A World For Travel meeting took place the 5th November in a virtual format, as the physical event in Evora, Portugal, has been postponed to May 2021.
Representatives from UNWTO, the World Travel and Tourism Council, A World For Travel, but also Ministries in charge of tourism shared their experts’ views about crisis recovery and gave a short preview of the sessions planned in Evora next year.
After an overview of the global situation, we heard the inspiring words of and adventurer and survival expert about the concept of courage and perseverance in difficult times. Young activists and professionals also gave their point of view about how the future of tourism should look like.
One of the key messages of this inspiring event was the following : the tourism sector is resilient, and it will recover from this crisis like it did in the past.
