2007 - ENAT Congress
A Few Words After the Congress, by the Coordinator of ENAT, Mr. Ivor Ambrose
On behalf of the European Network for Accessible Tourism and the Congress organisers, Fundacion ONCE, I am very pleased to report that the ENAT International Tourism for All Congress, 2007 was a rewarding and successful event.
Over 200 delegates from almost 20 countries attended the Congress, bringing a rich variety of experience and information to the workshops, round tables and plenary sessions.
The Congress was, indeed, a celebration of what has been achieved in accessible tourism in many parts of Europe and around the world. Delegates heard about a hostel run by disabled people in Barcelona; integrated tourist services in Genoa, Italy; accessibility information in Norway, Spain, Sweden, Greece, Portugal, Turkey, Australia, Italy, Serbia, France and the UK..., accessible beaches and mountain trails; new products for improving access, and public transport services including extensive improvements at airports... the list goes on and on!
Perhaps more than anything, the Congress showed that any kind of tourism in every place can be "for all", when the will is there to make it happen.
I would like to thank all the delegates for making this event a great success.
