Is Tourism Inclusive Enough? Panel discussion at World Travel Market 2013, London, UK


WTM Responsible Tourism Day banner

Is an annual holiday something which everyone should expect?

Panel discussion, WTM.  7 November 2012.

Inclusive tourism has become a pressing new topic in recent years, ensuring that everyone has an annual holiday for health and wellbeing.

This applies to everyone regardless of whether they are on low incomes, are in family groups, with friends, relatives, or are disabled, non disabled, slow walkers, walking with sticks, crutches or in wheelchairs.

What are the different assumptions in Europe and further afield about the right to an annual holiday and what should the industry do to make provision for all?

This session is part of several panels convened for World Responsible Tourism Day.

Time: 14.00 - 15.00

Venue: South Gallery Room 19
