19 to 23 September, Rimini, Italy. World Congress of Social Tourism Tourism: a time for social policies.

BITS logoI’m very pleased to invite you to participate in the next World Congress of Social Tourism to be held in Rimini from the 19th to the 23rd of September 2010.

Ten years after our last Congress in Italy, we will once again meet in the heart of one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations.

The theme of the Congress, “Tourism: a time for social policies”, perfectly reflects the importance we attach to the connection between social policies and tourism. The topic will be addressed from different perspectives in order to allow us to present a series of proposals useful for players committed to tourism for all.

The Congress will indeed be an event you will not want to miss out on. Plenary sessions, panels, round tables and animated workshops with international experts and field workers will allow the delegates to participate in debates and to exchange experiences.

The Congress will also mark an important step in the institutional life of BITS: proposals for important statutory modifications and for a name change for the organization will be submitted for members’ consideration during the General Assembly.

The regional sections – the Americas, Europe, and Africa – and the thematic sections, such as the Network of Local and Regional Authorities and the Platform for Training and Research, as well as the Task Force of Trade Unions, will meet on this occasion.

The event will be organized in Rimini’s brand new Congress Centre, coordinated by our friends of the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Republic of San Marino. It is our hope that the period we selected for the meeting and the various excursions proposed by the organizers will give you the possibility to mix business with pleasure and to fully enjoy the atmosphere of the Riviera di Rimini.

Looking forward to seeing you in Rimini,

Yours sincerely,

Norberto Tonini
BITS President
