This information and workshop event will provide insights into sustainable tourism (including how digital can make your business more efficient) and how businesses and social enterprises can meet their visitor and business needs, while still protecting our precious environment. You will have the opportunity to hear from and meet industry experts, agency staff, environmental project managers and specialist business mentors.
The four themes are Green, Astro, Digital and Community Tourism. Speakers include Derek Hannick (funding for SMEs), Martina Ui Dholain (GLOW 2.0), Dominic O'Morain and Michael Hegarty (developing community led sustainable tourism products), Michael Lennon (Westport Woods Hotel, green tourism), Kieran Flynn (sustaining habitats), Micheal Mac Donnacha (coastal zone tourism) and Alastair McDermott (digitalisation of tourism). Expect fascinating presentations, a speed dating workshop and a complimentary lunch.
This event is particularly relevant to tourism businesses and social enterprises with a tourism interest, and all are welcome.
