October 29, 2021 - October 29, 2021 European Solidarity Centre

New Trends in Tourism

Get ready #NTT is back!

Learn. Discover. Be Inspired

#NTT #NTT21



Last year brought immense change. We had to adjust to completely new situation. We had to learn to work and rest in new reality caused by COVID-19 pandemic. Closed shops, hotels, restaurants, travel limitations and many cancelled events, including NTT2020.
We are however entering year 2021 full of hope. We can already see the positive change looming ahead, thanks to vaccines and sanitary regime keeping.

We are convinced that life is soon going to get back on its old, good tracks. That means it’s high time to meet during New Trends in Tourism 2021.

The most important event of tourism industry in Poland will be held in Gdansk, on Friday 29th October 2021. NTT will return to European Solidarity Centre in Gdansk in a hybrid form. Partly as regular meetings and partly on-line.
Stay tuned for more details coming soon. See you in October!

 


The European Solidarity Centre is a state-of-the-art cultural institution and an open city space in which people, values and ideas come together. ECS, opened in August 2014, is still a new building on the map of Gdańsk. It was built in the historic space of the Gdańsk Shipyard, where Solidarność was born in August 1980, to commemorate the Polish peaceful revolution which changed the face of entire Central and Eastern Europe. The ECS is today an icon of Gdańsk.

The building's heart is a permanent exhibition to commemorate the Solidarity revolution and the downfall of communism in Europe; other features include an education centre, an R&D centre, archive, library and multimedia collection.

Tourism trends for 2022
PhD Eran Ketter
COVID-19 is an unprecedented event in modern tourism. Nevertheless, it is only a single event in a serious of fast-occurring changes that constantly re-shape global tourism. How will COVID-19 affect tourism demand and tourism destinations? 
What are the recent changes in travelers’ behavior, source markets, marketing strategies, digital platforms, and preference for tourism and hospitality experiences? Which actions should we take today to proactively meet the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow?
Using academic research tools, the latest statistics and a close look-out on the tourism industry, Eran Ketter (PhD) presents a clear, engaging and inspiring view on global tourism trends. The tourism trends keynote is focused on the practical implications for business development, management and marketing, in a business arena where the cheese doesn't stop moving.

Stop disturbing! How to create content people want to pay attention to.
Piotr Bucki
I hate it when marketing people waste my time. Filling it with obvious and cliché content deprived of any creativity.
I hate it when marketing people waste my time. Filling it with obvious and cliché content deprived of any creativity. I also hate it when instead of attracting my attention they bulldoze in interrupting me with displays, banners, facebook ads and digital crap with a capital C. I'm not alone. According to Edelman Brand Report most consumers feel this way. 56% of consumers thint „Marketers spend too much time looking for ways to force me to pay attention to their messages and not enough time thinking of ways to make me want to pay attention”. So it's high time to stop forcing our marketing upon customers and look for ways to engage them. And that is what I want to do - teach you how to engage not how to enforce. Are you with me?

Why digitalisation matters?
Nicholas Hall
As an industry, we are all challenged right now. The unprecedented events of 2020 and 2021 have tested even the most resilient of businesses, so looking forward may seem difficult at times.
In this session, that is exactly what we are going to do, learning why we should be putting the needs of our customers at the centre of our strategy. Learn about some of the major shifts that took place through the pandemic and consider how to respond to them strategically as a customer driven business. Nick will share a range of principles in building or adapting business with human centred design, making your customers the driving force behind your business growth and considering their needs at every step of the customer journey - to ultimately gain that competitive edge.

Moving beyond sustainability: regenerative tourism from strategy to practice
Manolis Psarros
Covid-19 has dealt a blow to the global tourism industry, which came to a near standstill in 2020. Though we already know that the road to recovery is not straightforward, professionals and destination stakeholders
Covid-19 has dealt a blow to the global tourism industry, which came to a near standstill in 2020. Though we already know that the road to recovery is not straightforward, professionals and destination stakeholders have a unique opportunity to rethink the role of tourism and design solutions that will help us rebuild a better, healthier and more resilient industry. The keynote will set out the basics of Regenerative Tourism. A thorough review of theoretical concepts and practical implications will guide a discussion about a new model for tourism; a model that genuinely works to restore life and livelihoods through regeneration, rather than rumbling onwards in a way that does ‘less bad’.
