Recap webinar: A new way of sustainable tourism accommodations with more transparency

On May 25, eu travel tech hosted the third webinar of its four-part series; “Travel your way – the Sustainable Travel Forum”. The subject of the webinar was how to increase transparency around tourism accommodation and featured an enlightening and informative discussion between Luis Araújo (President of Turismo de Portugal), Valentina Superti, (Director of Tourism & Proximity at DG GROW), MEP Claudia Monteiro de Aguiar, as well as representatives from Booking.com, Expedia Group and the Sustainable Hospitality Alliance.

Speakers offered concrete solutions for how to develop more sustainable modes of tourism to reduce the sector’s environmental footprint, increase transparency and consumer awareness. Moderator Dave Keating from France 24 guided a flowing debate with numerous opportunities for participants to pose their questions. In total, over 45 people joined the webinar, including a number of representatives from across the EU institutions.
