Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum taking place in Athens
The 2nd Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum will take place at the Megaron Athens International Conference Centre on May 28-29.
As the East Mediterranean and the Black Sea are at the heart of sea tourism’s future growth, the 2013 Posidonia Forum is set to provide a unique platform for industry leaders to meet and evaluate new investment opportunities.
After the success of the 2011 Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum, this year’s event will address a greater range of marine tourism development issues: participants at cruise sessions will address current East Mediterranean development strategy, port privatization and development, future itineraries, shore excursion innovation and new regional markets.
During the yachting session, successful sector development examples will be discussed, as well as optimal legislative and tax models; further subjects include marina privatization and development and the importance of attracting top class events. A special session on passenger-shipping will address technical and infrastructure problems, the current crisis’ consequences, as well as long term policies that could secure the viability of the region’s extensive coastal and island network.
