President's Message

Photo of Anna Grazia Laura, ENAT PresidentThe 27th of September 2016, World Tourism Day, is particularly significant since, for the first time, the theme of the day is Accessible Tourism. This is having a great impact on the tourism world and on each country and tourism organisation who, in many destination areas, have organised a special event to mark the occasion. This demonstrates how significant the issue of Accessible Tourism has become all over the world.  Annagrazia Laura, ENAT President, 27 September, 2016.
