ETOA seminars at WTM 

200 people attended this year’s ETOA seminars at WTM. The two sessions focused on city tourism, one looking at how people visit cities in the digital age and the other at the rise of anti-tourism in some destinations. Manolis Psarros of Toposophy showed how technology was not replacing the human touch, just augmenting it, while Chris Sandeman of Sandemans New Europe Tours and Jon Fauver of Trekksoft brought an operator’s perspective to the discussion. The lively debate in the second session, titled “Tourists Out!”, saw Hans Dominicus of CELTH outline how destinations can engage their own citizens in the visitor economy while Tom Jenkins of ETOA illustrated how this is not a new problem. ETOA is involved in two seminars at ITB in March, so watch this space.
