Events & conference

The space for strategies

Three days of debates, seminars and meetings to design the future of tourism and hospitality

The event within the event: inspirational content, internationally-renowned speakers, panel discussions with experts and companies, case histories, debates between operators.

► BE CONFIDENT is the main theme of the 2021 edition.

This theme puts authentic relationships of trust centre stage and asks us to think about how today’s consumers seek products that above all guarantee safety and well-being. From companies, we therefore expect empathy, reassurance and proximity. 
A strong commitment, which sees the travel and hospitality industry at the forefront.

MAIN ARENA:

In a complex environment, subject to accelerated and irregular growth, the Arena again puts the spotlight on macro-trends in the sector.

LIFESTYLE ARENA
A window onto tourism geared towards the new breed of traveller, active players in a holiday focused on personal growth, commitment to the common good and emotional rebalancing. Debates and seminars on new forms of cultural tourism closely connected to the identity of places, with an in-depth exploration of ancient trails, historic villages, large and small museums and paths that promote Italy’s huge architectural, artistic and natural heritage. All this with a special focus on food and wine, and activities intended to support travel linked to Italy’s considerable excellence in agriculture and food.

HOSPITALITY EVOLUTION ARENA
