Invitation to the 1st OPENTOURISM MED Business Meeting
Creating Tourism Synergies across the Mediterranean
It is with great pleasure to invite you to the 1st OPENTOURISM MED Business Meeting, which will be held on 26 of November 2016 at Nicosia, Cyprus at Cyprus Hilton Hotel, during the financial and investment Multi-Conference, Exhibition Money Show.
Following the successful 3rd Euro-Mediterranean Tourism Forum, that took place on the 4th of August 2016 at the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce (Alexandria, Egypt) in the context of GOALS European Union Project, the Opentourism initiates the first 1st OPENTOURISM MED Business Meeting in order to contribute to creating cross-border tourism synergies with tourism businesses and stakeholders in the Mediterranean region.
The Mediterranean region is the world’s leading tourist destination, although there are considerable disparities within it. It receives 30% of tourist arrivals and 25% of the total income from global tourism. According to the WTO, tourism impact in the MED region is higher than in any other region in the world.
The 1st OPENTOURISM MED Business Meeting will offer a good opportunity for international participants to explore and develop linkages with the Mediterranean tourism industry sector while relevant businesses and key stakeholders, destinations, entrepreneurs and travel agencies with the aim of developing the synergies and achieving higher levels of tourism growth in the cross-border area.
Ideally, the participants will vary:
- Public national/regional authorities working in the tourism sector
- Tourist boards and Chambers of Commerce
- Professional and business associations
- Tourism operators and associations
- NGOs and SMEs working in Mediterranean tourism
