Partnerships for Change and Development

5 Nov 2018, 15:15 - 16:15

UKI & International Inspiration Zone - TA190

Tourism takes place in destinations with multiple stakeholders, attractions, accommodation providers, transport, food and beverage providers, tour operators and guides, local people and local authorities. Rarely can much be achieved by one stakeholder working alone. Achieving change in destinations where tourism takes place generally requires that different interests work together. Five practitioners from a range of backgrounds will discuss what works and what doesn’t to shed light on how to do it better.
