The Sustainable Tourism Mobility Forum, hosted by Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas) and the Netherlands Board of Tourism and Conventions (NBTC), will take place on 27 May 2024 in Breda, the Netherlands.
In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, CELTH, POLIS, and NECSTouR, the event aims to address challenges related to emissions in the tourism industry and focus on the necessary transition towards more sustainable transportation modes, like rail, coaches, and cycling, in tourism.
Forum themes: Under the theme of long-haul and local tourism mobility, discussions will delve into various aspects, including collaboration between tour operators and rail transport providers, experiences with night train operations, decarbonisation challenges in the aviation industry, and the integration of tourism into urban and rural mobility planning. Insights will be drawn from France's approach to mobility development for the Olympic Games and Austria's facilitation of night trains. Business mobility will also be a key focus, as modern technologies to reduce business travel will be explored and cross-learning between business and leisure tourism fostered. Attendees will engage with cutting-edge technology on the XR Stage (Virtual Production Studio) and learn from experiences like the Travel Smart Campaign led by Transport & Environment.
For whom: This event aims to unite public authorities, industry players, start-ups, and universities at national, regional and European levels.
