The Tourism Organization of Vojvodina was present as a full member of the NECSTouR network at the Annual General Meeting and the Thematic Conference in Santa Cruz, Tenerife from 10 to 12 June.2019.
This network is significant as evidenced by the fact that NECSTouR network includes regions such as Andalusia, Catalonia, Sardinia, Emilia Romagna, Istria and many others.
The first day was reserved for a thematic conference titled “Applying Tourism Trends in Data, Talent and Resources Management in the European Islands and Regions”. On the following day at the annual General Meeting, a new “NECSTouR” Strategy 2019-2021 was officially presented. It is based on “NECSTouR 5S” of sustainable tourism: Smart, Socio-cultural, Skills, Safety and Statistics.
In this regard, the next NECSTouR Strategic Event will be held in Novi Sad, with the Provincial Government and the Tourism Organization of Vojvodina as hosts. The topic of the event will be “A Better Place to Live, Better Places to Visit” within the European Capital of Culture 2021 and the Youth Capital of Europe 2019. The aim of the event is to apply this topic as a means to address the case study: Capital of Culture – before, during and after this thematic event. This includes promotion of principles, examples of good practice at the destination and more extensive dialogue on the cultural heritage of the destination.
In addition to its role to bring together all members of NECSTouR, it also makes important decisions for the best future for the network. This year’s meeting focused on the exchange of knowledge and the new strategic action of business associations titled “NECSTouR 5S Matching Event 1st edition”.
