A considerable number of parallel working sessions offer opportunities for short presentations and an exchange of success stories and good practice experience.

The Event aims to convene professionals in sustainable tourism, and especially the members of ANVR, MVO Network Tourism, RECRON, VvKR, and the Green Destinations Community and Partnership.

Objectives of the Global Leaders meeting

Aim of the Global Destination Leaders meeting is to establish a Global Destination Leaders network, bringing together selected destination leaders representing globally important tourism destinations united by a firm commitment to improve their quality and sustainability performance, to share good practices and experience, and to boost their visibility on the global tourism market place. The Global Leaders Network will actively encourage its members to be at the forefront of innovation in developing tourism, while advancing the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
