Join us on our first Light in the Dark webinar where we will offer inspiring examples of companies and destinations innovatively developing their region throughout the year. What is the potential in the regional and European markets? How can I attract tour operators to my region? An invited panel of destinations and entrepreneurs will ponder the challenges and possibilities of sustainably developing tourism that offers the most benefits to their communities.
