Wellness tourism

The boost that wellness tourism has made lately clearly shows the importance that the visitor gives to health and well-being. The tourist directly relates the sustainability of the destination with its tourist offer.
It is also of great importance to analyze governance and the best strategies to retain the workforce. The company needs to spread its values and give priority to the quality of services.
To address issues affecting mountain territories, the Congress will bring together international reference professionals to jointly discuss models and experiences promoted around the world.


The value of sustainability and well-being of mountain tourism

To address the main themes, the meeting will be divided into four sessions that will discuss health tourism, wellness and thermalism; the promotion and differentiation of mountain tourism; emerging tourism products; and the training of professionals in the sector, among other topics of general interest.
