Tourism Symposium 2017 - Heritage and Innovation: The future of tourism

This year’s Tourism Symposium will be held in Edinburgh on 5th and 6th June. This is the only UK-based industry-wide conference and is a must-attend event for anyone wanting to hear the latest ideas and developments from across Tourism. Full details are available here

The Symposium’s 19 speakers will discuss global trends, challenges and opportunities facing the tourism and travel industries, covering topics including investing in future tourism leaders, capitalising on innovation, examining tourism’s implications on the economic future of heritage sites, from UK, EU and international perspectives. TEDx-style inspirational interludes will also feature.

Delegates will also enjoy a selection of discovery tours exploring Edinburgh's 250-year-old New Town and up-to-date festival venues and sites, along with the opportunity to travel to Glasgow; an informal networking supper will take place on the Monday evening.
