For 7 years, Business Tourism Management is the event that brings together operators, administrations, companies, public and private bodies in the city of Lecce with the aim of creating a value network around the theme of tourism to strengthen the link between the territory and international dynamics. Next year, for the first time it will be held in Taranto a city where the environmental problem is very high due to the presence of a huge steel production plant. The reason is to promote initiative to foster the role of tourism in the Sustainable Development Goals and to start a great discussion about how to convert destinations from industrial to touristic.
