Official presentation: Global Wine Tourism Organization & GWTO Academy

 ‘Inspiring New Futures Together’

Probably one of the most sustainable and inclusive tourism projects ever

The Global Wine Tourism Organization (GWTO) and the GWTO Academy will be officially presented on November 5 at 3:45pm to 5:00pm CET.

The Executive Board, Regional Directors and the Director of the Academy will explain their roles in the organization.

Humanity’s current unprecedented health emergency has caused a world economic crisis.

“Markets now demand health security and, in response, businesses have to redefine strategic plans with a focus on social inclusion while governments have to cooperate more than ever with the private sector”, GWTO President Jose Antonio Vidal said.

The Global Wine Tourism Organization will help members face the challenges in the current situation by fostering the value wine tourism provides within the broader context of tourism development.

The event is for consumers, media, governments (central, regional and local), professionals from tourism, wine, gastronomy and agricultural industries in general, the academic and education sector and social media influencers.
