2018 Tourism Symposium
The Tourism Society’s annual Tourism Symposium is the only UK-based industry-wide tourism conference and is a must-attend event for anyone wanting to hear the latest ideas and developments from across the tourism sectors. This year the Tourism Symposium will be held at the UNESCO world heritage site of Maritime Greenwich and offer an exciting and fast paced programme covering global trends, opportunities and challenges facing the tourism and travel industries. Expert speakers will cover topical issues including the sharing economy, capitalising on innovation, balancing the benefits and effects of over-tourism, examining the value of heritage as an attractor for economic development and all from a UK, EU and international perspective. A pre-conference programme of both experiential and educational discovery tours along with the Society’s First Annual Summer Reception will ensure delegates are shown a fully comprehensive view of tourism in Greenwich and have ample opportunity to network.
