Afbeeldingsresultaat voor amsterdam overtourism

Session description:

Many popular tourist destinations are ringing the alarm bells. Euro Attractions Show host city Amsterdam, Venice, Barcelona, Cinque Terre and even Norway and Iceland are only some examples of destinations struggling with the amount of tourists and the effect they have on the quality of living at those locations. This has a big impact on the general discussion on many levels and the willingness to invest in tourism in other parts of the country.

During this session our speakers will explore what this means for attractions operators and developers and how they can help in spreading visitors. What opportunities are raising for them, while tackling the bigger problem?
