We would like to inform you that online registration is still open for the International rural tourism workshop „Changing concept for quality? Situation – innovation – local value” in Riga, June 9.
Please see the programme attached.
The workshop will bring together European professionals in rural tourism to evaluate the changes in the sector and highlight innovative, constructive and successful approaches to win the challenges of today.
The speakers and panel discussion groups represent the leading rural tourism organisations: Eurogites, Gites de France, Austrian Farm Holidays, Farmstay UK and other practitioners. The workshop is combined with the annual conference of Latvian rural tourism providers. The workshop language is English with translation
At the moment we have registered participants and speakers from 16 countries representing a variety of practicing rural tourism organisations so we expect a professionally useful event showing a full scope of the present European rural tourism product range and initiating new cooperations.
· The workshop is the first wide international gathering of rural tourism professionals since the congress in Hungary 2007 to discuss the hottest issues in the sector and generate professional inspiration.
· The speakers and panellists are the best practicing experts in rural tourism, and the organisers are proud to have all of them in one event for high quality and value presentations and discussions.
· Experience exchange with colleagues from other countries will give support and added value to individual efforts in finding out how to go about the current changes in the sector, how to stay in the market and turn threats into benefits?
· And finally – after the workshop, a summer evening in Latvia is an excellent occasion to socialise with your foreign colleagues and friends while enjoying Latvian national values like good beer, food, and the white nights when it is light even by midnight.
