Freedom of movement to lead agenda at ETOA European Tourism Summit
POSTED 13 Sep 2018 . BY Tom Walker
This year's European Tourism Summit, which is being held in Lucerne next month, will focus on the threats on freedom of movement and other key issues facing the European tourism sector.

Organised by the European Tourism Association (ETOA), the event will see delegates take part in policy sessions featuring a number of high-profile speakers – including MEPs, representatives from intergovernmental organisations and industry pioneers.

Sessions will include talks on tourism ‘megatrends’, destination management strategy and the impact of Brexit.

“Tourism generates jobs and free movement of both non-EU visitors into Europe and skilled workers within Europe are critical issues for ETOA members right now," said Tom Jenkins, CEO of ETOA.

"If policy makers in Brussels and London are serious about supporting the freedom for tourists to travel and workers to support the industry post-Brexit, the focus needs to be on ease of market access and developing a regulatory environment that suits a global, online marketplace.

"ETOA’s role in ensuring there are no unnecessary barriers to business has never been so important and so we look forward to a productive eighth edition of the ETOA European Tourism Summit.”

The summit will take place in Lucerne on 9 October. ETOA is the leading travel trade association for organisations with business in Europe and has more than 1,000 members.
