As you build your professional network, the FORUM is the best place for meeting with people coming from all different geographical areas who share a common passion for Mediterranean tourism, travel, and hospitality. Regardless if you are the CEO or a second year grad student, or even presenting for the first time, you may meet someone at a meal, in the exhibit hall or wherever and within a few minutes, you can make a connection with someone that could dramatically impact your professional career
EXPANDING KNOWLEDGE AND FINDING SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS.
At the FORUM you will hear a lot about things in your field that will be new to you, including new techniques, new types of equipment, unpublished data, or learn from thought-leaders that you may not have previously heard of. You have the opportunity to ask presenters questions about their work and the rationale behind it, which you can’t do when reading journal articles.
PRESENTING IDEAS AND WORK TO OTHERS
The FORUM presents the opportunity to participants to pitch bold ideas to industry leaders and stakeholders. It’s good practice in talking about what you do with a variety of people from similar, related and/or completely different areas of study. Indeed, at the FORUM you will have the opportunity to get feedback on your work from people who have never seen it before and may provide new insight. Furthermore, through our digital media service, participating brands can be part of our powerful content marketing campaign serving insights through podcasts, video interviews, white papers, and more.
The FORUM is where deals are discussed and signed. This is especially important when you are looking for collaborators, new clients or sales agents from different parts of the world. Our team works closely with participating sponsors and the event provides the perfect platform for new announcements.
IN-PERSON & FUN!
After an absence of two years the FORUM is back offering opportunities to connect with peers face-to-face safely in physical venues. Our networking events and receptions are full of exciting and entertaining features for attendees. Mediterranean cuisine and music will feature high in our events with the participation of Maestro Bruno Santori and the Mediterranean Orchestra in an outdoor breath-taking setting.
PROJECT IDEAS, MASTERCLASSES & DISCUSSIONS
The FORUM unites the delegates by an interest in Mediterranean Tourism as the single broad topic but presents different masterclasses and think sessions focused on sub-fields of study, and many project ideas. The focused nature of these sessions at the FORUM allows you to dig deeper with the understanding of your topic of interest.
