Top Picks: Opening Ceremony, Welcome Reception And Plenary Opening Session
On Sunday 30 September 2018 the second World Summit on Accessible Tourism started in Brussels
Representatives of the #dfa2018 organising committee opened the event and welcomed the participants.
A kick off in style, with a pleasant atmosphere!
The opening plenary session of #dfa2018 took place on Monday 1 October 2018
The opening plenary session was as a total success and some great material has been shared. Marina Diotallevi (World Tourism Organization – UNWTO) and Daniela Bas (United Nations) inspired us to be advocates for accessibility at all times, wherever we happen to be – stimulating!
“Rarely have so many tourism professionals from all parts of the world contributed to a single, global conversation,” said Isabelle Ducharme (Co-president of the Summit).
Accessibility is a right that we are claiming today. It is the duty of destinations, establishments and any touristic service to make every effort to reach optimal accessibility: Political willingness, communication, training, developing tools & instruments, providing support, setting deadlines, control, establishing sanctions,… added Vincent Snoeck (Co-president of the Summit).
