Creativity and innovation for cultural and tourism management in European Pilgrimage Routes, Heritage and Thermal Sites

Cultural routes, sustainable tourism and termal sites – these are the key words of a 3-day intensive working session of Cultour+ project co-financed by Erasmus plus. It was held in Cori, a quaint small town near Rome (60 kms south) that is crossed by Francigena route. More than 10 universities were present, several international experts will give word and explain their view on the main issues and on-going debates regarding cultural management. The conference is accredited on three prestigious international academic magazines, such as Tourism & Management Studies; Tourism and Hospitality Internacional Journalism; Estudios y Perspectivas en Turismo.

Cultour + is the framework of 3-year work of analysis on tourism enterprises and their usage of digital tools, as well as an incubation transnational lab on new ideas of young entrepreneurs. Universities, SMEs, coaches, public authorities have all collaborated to create something new that will be discussed  in the following programme.
