Development of Tourism for All: International Congress in Alba, Italy

21/04/2010 

Regione Piemonte logoA two-day congress fully dedicated to accessible tourism and its perspectives for the future will examine “Development of Tourism for All – Promotional Strategies and Good Practices in the Offer” at the Congress hall of the Ferrero Foundation.

The congress is addressed to all those (from the tour operators to the specialized journalist) who, in various ways, are interested in tourism for people with special needs, which in the next years can possibly become a key field in the travel and tourism economy.

The goal of this event is to characterize strategies that can lever the potential demand of over 50 million people in Europe, by providing touristic offers for all, drawing on examples of effective transformations, thanks to the work of bodies and institutions in different European regions.

The congress is jointly organised by the Association CPD (within the project Turismabile), the Association Sportabili Alba, the IsITT - Italian Institute for Tourism for All, with the support of the Regione Piemonte and of the Ministero del Turismo. The Minister Michela Vittoria Brambilla will attend.

Speakers will include representatives of the United Nations, the UN World Tourism Organisation, The European Disability Forum, ENAT, Fundación ONCE, and many other significant tourism businesses and organisations.

The conclusions will be delivered by Giovanni Ferrero (Director of the Council of People with Difficulties Onlus), and the representatives of Enit, of the Ministry of Tourism and of the UNWTO.
