Our Association organized a Panel Debate and presentation of the latest developments in the German travel market. The presentation was made by Ms Heike Beller of the German Firm FVW Media Group.
A large number of tourism professionals discussed the problems, prospects and opportunities to develop tourism from Germany.
All participants had the opportunity to contribute to this debate by making their own suggestions and recommendations.
