Challanges And Chances

2020/08/31 4-7 pm CEST

2020 is a difficult year for tourist guides worldwide. In many countries guides are only allowed to guide under special conditions. But are guests booking tours at the moment? Is there a second wave with renewed restrictions, travel warnings and lockdowns coming?

We want to analyse the situation with the association chairladies of the WFTGA and the German BVGD and discuss the situation with all of you. How can tourist guide associations help their members now? We want to share some best practice cases and focus on the positive.

International experts from cruise companies and city tourism sectors will give us an outlook on 2021 and the upcoming requirements for tourist guides.

We also give a small preview of our training program in winter and will discuss with you, want we should focus on.
